Welcome To

Supurr salutations pawesome furriends

*waves paw*

Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library

Mew may have seen on our Instagram account last weekend the P.A. did the monthly sofa move and found all the missing toys which obviously end up hiding from Fudge as he's really brutal on some of them.
Fudge had this to say in his defence while up the tree...

So anyhoo, aftur the cleaning had finished in house, the P.A. started towards the library brandishing the vacuum cleaner and other cleaning paraphernalia.. well I launched towards the door... 

And so a stand-off ensued until the P.A. decided to go back from whence she came with said vacuum cleaner... so I'll keep the cobwebs fur now, they'll be pawesome sprayed gold fur Catmas! MOL

And now I think it's time to share this weeks book.

This week I'm sharing

Cat Confidential 

The Book Your Cat Would Want You To Read 


Vicky Halls

**Furstly I have to let mew all know that I was given a free copy of this book in exchange fur a fair review**

Here's the book blurb:

The bestseller 9 out of 10 cats would recommend to their human
You love your cat – and you hope your cat loves you too – but cats and their owners can often misunderstand each other. The cat says one thing and the owner hears another. Mostly, it feels right but, sometimes, something can go very wrong. How do you really know if your pampered pet wants a stroke behind the ears, or whether that insistent miaow is trying to communicate something more complex? If you’ve ever wondered why your cat does the things it does – soils in the house, picks a fight with the cat next door, feels nervous around strangers or destroys your furniture – then this is the book you have to read.

Renowned cat counsellor Vicky Halls has changed the lives of thousands of owners and their problem cats. Filled with intriguing case studies, amazing facts and practical advice, Cat Confidential answers all your questions so that you can understand your feline friend better. Fascinating, funny and heart-warming, it's your chance to explore the unique bond between you and your cat. Catisfaction guaranteed.


So what did I think to this? I thought it was supurr informative and full of really useful tips.  No matter if mew're a cat-staff veteran or a complete newbie-in-training, I think this would be your go-to book fur many issues that some cat-staff may encounter with their fabulous feline companions.

It's full of interesting case studies, which gives the reader a sense of better understanding of how to address problems, issues, or scenarios should they occur. 

It is a furry well thought out book, written in a tone that feels more welcoming and helpful than other similar books I've read offur the years. 

Vicky Hall really knows her stuff; from kittens all the way up to seniors - which as mew know is my designation being 16+ and yes I do get my nails clipped regularly as I tend to get stuck on things a lot more often these days! 

There are chapters on kittens, play, toileting issues, age-related problems, all the way through to grief etc... this a really comprehensive guide and would be a fab addition to your bookshelf that I would heartily recommend to all cat-staff.  And in four wurds I can sum up...

A total must-have!   

And as we're getting closer to Catmas, this would be the purrfect gift fur any cat lover.

Just before I pop off, I'd like to say a special thanks to Penguin Random House Books fur sending me a copy of, Cat Confidential.

  4. That sounds like a great read.
    I also have to say that spraying the cobwebs gold is an inspirational idea! Just think how much dusting it would save.

  5. Great review Amber. I am going to put this on my list for Santa.XO

    1. Hey Aunty Ellen, hope mew got your copy off Kitty Claws! Purrs Amber xox

  6. FUDGE! You know you're not supposed to be in the tree! Ellie's toys run from her too - though she's a little more consistent - the sparkle balls go first.

    1. Hi MK, BC & EM, MOL Fudge listens to no-one when it comes to tree climbing! MOL And the sparkle balls are furst to end up hiding under the sofa's! MOL Purrs Amber xox

  7. I bet those toys wanted their own Christmas party, and now the PA has broken it up for them! Maybe regroup them till after Christmas? Poor Fudge, at te thin end of the wedge again and stuck decorating the tree and house ;) MOL

    1. Hey Erin, oh they did want their own cat-free Catmas fur sure! MOL Purrs Amber xox

  8. Wow, that sure was a load of toys!! When Minko was still here, petcretary's precleaning rituals often collected piles of toys too, but the most she evfur found was about 14 little meeces,and a few of my crinkle balls, MOL!

    1. Hiya guys, wow that was some toy haul, I am most impressed! Purrs Amber xox
