Supurr salutations pawesome furriends *waves paw*
Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library
Wow I can't believe a week has gone by so quickly, it seems like only yesterday I was here, time is doing some funny things right now.
I was going to wait until next week to mention how our health-check went, but the good news is Melvyn and I are fine after our trip to the VETS on Wednesday morning. Melvyn weighs 5.3kg, however he's still got a whole kilo to catch up with Sauce, though he did say he's going to going to go all out to be level with him in the next year... Yes, Melvyn is now bulking and going all in to meet that goal! MOL
I've lost a little bit of weight and I do have arthritis and onset CKD, but given I'm 17 this is purrfectly normal for an elderly catizen like myself. I do take CBD oil to help with the arthritis and some days I do walk like Robo-Cat but so it goes - though mew should see how the P.A. walks furst thing in the morning since her accident, it's like Darwin's Evolution during the furst couple of hours and she makes me look pawsitively fluid! MOL [But for Cods Sake don't tell her I told mew that, or she'll be revoking my credits at Audible and I really don't want a rerun of last time!]
Anyhoo in other news, remember our basket on the landing; well it got a little make-over this week and as mew can see Melvyn got to try it furst! It got a new lease of life with a white paint finish, a new supurr comfy cushion was made for the bottom, then a pom pom trimmed throw for the top with two small catnip pillows in matching fabric for extra comfort.
He says; it meets with his approval, and the P.A should have revamped it ages ago! MOL
Melvyn also has a bandanna and snuggle mat in the same fabric, though with different trim, click hereto see.

And now I think it's time to share this weeks book.
You Need More Sleep Advice From Cats
by Francesco Marciuliano
Here's A Small
Snippet of the Book Blurb:
Our feline friends have spent eons observing, napping, pondering, napping and taking notes about the human condition. In between naps, they’ve realised that we humans could use some catlike guidance when it comes to handling the ups and downs of life.
Furstly I bought this way back in February and actually furgot all about it until I was going through one of the 'unread' book piles in my library - OOPS! So I thought I'd better get a wriggle on and review it this week! MOL
I did another review by the same author a while ago, so check that out too.
Anyhoo what did I think to this little book of wisdom for our pet hoomans? Though not a large book I thought it was fab and very funny in places. It has some lovely photo's of lots of different cats, and covers four different areas of life advice including; relationships, social minglings, climbing the corporate ladder and all about ones-self. So it purretty much covers all aspects that mew could ever really need to relay to your hooman, which is really good as don't mew think that some hoomans over-complicate things?
In fact, I would say that this would make the purrfect pressie for your hooman; my advice, buy it for Catmas, then a; mew've already took care of your shopping and b; mew've bought something thoughtful - the purrfect gift, so many levels of pawesome!
