Hello gorgeous library guests 


Welcome to the Mewton-Clawson Library at BBHQ 

Thank mew for joining me in the stacks today. Mew may remember last week when I had to resort to having my hot water bottle as it was quite cold. Well, this week we had a couple of nice days, and I actually ventured outside, and while outside I spied some rather yummy cat grass.

And in purrfect mid chomp, unbeknownst to me I was snapped looking most glamorous. Not my most flattering photo, but I thought I'd post it before it appears on the Friday Fluffers in the next few weeks while I'm on my summer vay-cay with the hashtag #lookatthosechompers! MOL

Today the P.A. is joining Friday Fill-ins Blog Hop with the pawesome 15 & Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs.
1. Lately, I've been _________.

2. I find _________ fascinating.

3. If I had known _________, I would have _________.

4. I can't help but _________ when I'm nervous.

The P.A.'s answers are...

1. Lately, I've been working on the BBHQ shop and making products, and yesterday I sorted out insurance, so that means that I can soon start selling a few things.

2. I find Egyptology fascinating. When I was at school, my career choice was archaeology, though sadly in the '80s there wasn't much hope of that happening. 

3. If I had known what I know today when I was younger, I would have done a few things differently.

4. I can't help but feel mildly anxious when I'm nervous.

 Schroedinger The Wonder Cat


Aaron Rosen

       Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:      

Schroedinger The Wonder Cat is the story of fourteen years of living with the world's most amazing feline. His actions and antics are chronicled and there are many pictures of beings with whom he has had relationships and places he has been. He is truly a member of our family and we treat him as an equal - at least most of the time - and never refer to him as a pet as that would be demeaning to him. It is also the story of our lives and how we interact with Schroedinger. How he came to live with me, how he grew up, how our lives changed when Sandy, my wife, joined us, how we moved and how we live together.

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

So what did I think of The Life and Times of Schroedinger J. Cat Jr. III?

Let me set the scene for mew; I got snuggled in my big leather chair in the library with my hot water bottle and supurr fluffy blanket on Sunday afternoon, while the rain pitter-patted down in an almost gentle fashion, occasionally tip-tapping against the windows, and I read this book in one sitting.

As I began reading, I wasn't really sure for whom the target audience was, but as I kept turning page after page, I soon realised it was written for readers exactly like me; young or old who love a good yarn about a real kitty interspersed with interesting facts, figures and explanations about completely random things that just pop up in the narrative. And without giving anything away or spoilerizing anything, I'm just going to say; if mew don't know what a quark is, mew will after mew've read this book.

Schroedinger reminds me very much of Smooch to look at, and his journey from kittenhood to full cathood, and senior cat is heartwarming and fun. There's even a funny cationary (dictionary for cats) at the back of the book, and the different story sections are filled with colour photo's and cute illustrations, each having a description.

Would I recommend this to mew, yes indeed I would as I found it a supurr way to spend a couple of hours on an afternoon, and I know I'll read it again in the future.

Many thanks to Schroedinger and his dad/author Aaron for sending me a signed copy of their wunderpurr book all the way from sunny California. I enjoyed it immensely.

Visit Schroedinger at:

  • If mew'd like a signed copy, there's a contact form on Schroedinger's website, and I'm sure he'd love to hear from mew.

  • Publisher: Schroedinger Publishing (1 Dec. 2020)
  • Paperback: 120 pages

  1. That was a good review sweet Amber and I'm glad you got to enjoy some grass time. Those were good answers too. Hey, thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  2. I hope we can start buying things from the P.A.'s shop soon. That sounds like a fun book to read.

  3. I had heard of this book before, but not read a review. Sounds wonderful! Just the thing for a wet and dreary weekend, or to spend time with on a warm summers day spent sunning onself between naps and meals!
    Great review, Amber. So look forwards to the next.

  4. You had a great way to deal with a rainy afternoon, Amber!

    And you sure were all into that cat grass!

  5. That was a great review, Amber. No gentle pitter patter of rain here. If it is not beating against the window it is the hail deafening me! We did have one fairly dry day earlier in the week though when I managed to plant some bedding before the rain came back later in the day.

  6. I love your fill-ins and yes on the third one. Me too.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. Scritches all around and a hug to mom. ♥

  7. Really great fill ins friend. Amber we have a copy of that book and have not read it yet but plan on reading it for our Cat Scouts Book Club in the next month or so. Thanks for a fun review

  8. Amber, those look like chive plants you are chewing. I hope you did not get sick. I have that book on my to- read list. Good to know you enjoyed it. Thank you to the PA for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. Yes, I would also have done some things differently. :) Have a nice weekend. XO

  9. First time visitor and I love your blog! I'm a teacher/librarian and love your library posts and not to mention the cats! My little furball is also my voice of my blog. Good to meet a kindred spirit.

    Egyptology! Have you read The Book of Two Ways by Jodi Picoult? Brilliant, especially if you like Egyptology.

    Hope you are enjoying wonderful weekend!

  12. Oooo that sounds like an amazing book, will have to keep an eye open for it, we're recently back to blogging again after a long break and so pleased to have found your website, look forward to catching up on your past posts x

  13. What a great grass munching picture...I wonder if the grass was as delicious as it looks!!

  14. Oops...I'm not sure what happened with my comment as I paused for a moment, so either I hit the wrong and deleted it myself, or I sent it half finished! Oh my! That's what happens when one gets distracted!

    That book sounds wonderful! Thank you for the review!

    I always dreamed of having a library in my home, like those photos above. <3

    Thanks for joining in our #FlashbackFriday Blog Hop, too!
