Welcome To

With Amber ~ The Best Library Kitty in the entire Mewton~Clawson Parish

Supurr salutations pawesome furriends

*waves paw*

Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library this Valentine's week.

OMC what a week it's been, mew know those post-stealers at petzilia, they have now finally taken down our 60+ posts but only aftur we had to get our lawyer on-board to email them.

And the hilarious thing is this; aftur they illegally used our Wednesday post on their site [aftur 4 previous take-down notice emails from us to remove effurything], they now want us to remove our post from here, what a classic ~ we MOL'd so much we fell offur!

Howeffur, they were still stealing our posts aftur they'd emailed us at 10.30 Thursday morning us to say; sorry and we're going to remove them.

We have several screenshots to prove this, fur future use, just in case. And we have 100's of screenshots of effurything else of what they used illegally.

But the good news is this; since alerting the cat blog'o'sphere to the blogpost theft, and asking our pals to check the site fur their posts, the site has now been taken offline temporarily by their host GoDaddy due to many complaints of copyright theft, etc.

So we, the kitty blogging community have a small victory, yet we shall have to be vigilant so this level of plagiarism and theft this does not occur again. 

And now all that kerfuffle is offur I can finally get back to my catnip heart, and oh my cod, when I tell mew this nip is truly epic, it's mind-blowingly epic! MOL

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

This week I'm sharing

The Valentine Cat 


Clyde Robert Bulla

I've had this book fur quite some time, in fact, I think I originally bought it fur last years valentines review, then furgot about it and bought another one instead! MOL

Anyhoo, I found it in the stacks recently and it's here today; now this was furst published in 1959, so this is the books 60th year in print, how pawesome is that, epically so.

It tells the story of a lonely artist, who has given up on his painting until one day a little cat who has a heart-shaped white splodge on his forehead turns up and needs a home - mew know I don't do spoilers, so enough said there! MOL 

This is a lovely story and will delight young and older readers. The illustrations throughout are absolutely charming and if mew don't have it on your bookshelf, I would get a copy if mew can. My copy is a second-hand pawed one as I don't think there's a current print run, and I think buying used books is fun, and good fur the planet too! 

In summary, I loved this little tale, and am so glad I got a copy, it's just purrfect fur Valentines Day.

  1. Awww. That sounds like a lovely book. The artwork looks very special too. Just shows some of the oldies are the besties :) Well that's what Mrs H says and I guess she would know, MOL

  2. That sounds like a good book and has a lovely cover.
    I am glad that site is down now and hope it stays that was unless they get some original content, or pay for what they use.

  3. That sounds like a good book and hey, terrific work on stopping the thieves!

    1. Hi Brian, it was a global team effort on stopping those blog post thieves! Purrs Amber xox

  4. I'm glad you took care of Petzilia. They linked up to one of my memes and I was told about them. I deleted that link right away. I'm glad Go Daddy has suspended them. They probably won't be back. Shame on them.

    Have a purrfect day and weekend. My best to your peeps. ♥

    1. Hi Sandee, that's the power of the cat blog'o'sphere when we wurk together, and our best to mew too! Purrs Amber xox

  5. Aww, this book sounds like fun, and I LURV used book stores!

    1. Oh guys, used book stores are my fav fur sure plus auctions too, where mew get boxes of books fur pennies! MOL Purrs Amber xox

  6. I've never heard of Petzilla before, so I did a search, not that they would want any of my cat posts. Is it the same thing as wagz? I found something that said Wagz bought them last year.

    I'll look for your recommended book at the library. There is a series of dog books I love but I haven't found a cat book or series worth reading yet.

    1. Hiya Marty, oh that's interesting, however they are not online anymore thank cod. Oh do look fur this book, it's delightfully cute! Purrs Amber xox

  7. Sounds like a real good book. Is it sold on in the US? If so what's the link? By the way about Petzilia that website has either been suspended or terminated by Go Daddy.

    1. Great news about the site being suspended! Here's the link for the book - I shortened it with bitly - hope mew enjoy if mew get a copy! Purrs Amber xox

  8. Great review. Perfect book for Valentine's Day. XO

  9. Ha! They want YOU to remove a post. Fat chance. Looking gorgeous as always, Miss Amber.

    1. Hiya MK, BC & EM, I know right, the nerve of asking that aftur what they did - fluffing dreamers! MOL Purrs Amber xox
