A VERY Good Read




Hi everyone, Katie here.

I know, I know. She doesn't call. She doesn't write. She doesn't BLOG! Sheesh. I'm not liking this whole employment bit that Glogirly's got going on one bit. Don't worry, I'm fine. I'm still getting ample food, most importantly ample salmon. I heard Glogirly say something about ample and me that I didn't really care for this morning. I'm not worried though. She simply cannot resist my kitty charms.

I have something great to share with you today!!! We got a special delivery at the townhouse this week, all the way from Nevada. I don't know who Nevada is, but Nevada must be pretty cool because Nevada's box had a bunch of books in it from my good friend FIN! These are no ordinary books. I really have no use for most books.





But this one is very special. Fin from Housecat Confidential, that's the 'HC' for those of you in the know, has published her very own Housecat Confidential book and I have my very own copy! If you don't have yours, you better hurry the fluff up and make it happen! (see my link at the bottom of this post.) The HC book is an amazing tale of Fin's life, a memoir so to speak. She writes quite a bit about her humans, but don't worry...that doesn't ruin it. Both Glogirly and I have been riveted to it ever since we cracked it open.

Some of you may already know this, but I'm responsible for the cover design on Fin's book! It took a lot of direction on my part, but Glogirly finally got it right. Thank Cod I speak Photoshop. She could have never done it without me.

I take my HC book with me everywhere.



In between chapters I take a quick time-out to scratch my post.




When opportunity arises, I put it down to hunt for rabbits.
But it's never far away.




Look! That's Fin's pawtograph inside!


The HC is just like that. Like a good friend. Despite the distance, despite how busy we get, a good friend is never far away. They are always right there ready to give a kind word or virtual hug. So to Fin and her human/ghost writer/domestic slave Meg, Glogirly and I send you a huge virtual hug. And you KNOW that coming from me... that has to be one really BIG hug!

xoxo,
K-n-GG

Katie,
Our Mommy read it to us every night for a week! It IS a fabulous read...in fact, we might have to hear it again soon...

Ample salmon is good.

Benny and Lily said...

Well, well, well Katie...I would consider a help wanted sign. Obviously a silly job is a bit more important than posting. And thank you for showing us what YOU were responsible for in your friend's book.
Tootles,
Benny & Lily

Fin said...

OMC it's sooo exciting! You did such an awesome job with the cover Katie. Cats stop me in the cul de sac to mention how cool it looks.

Mom and I were thinking of you and GG so much today and it was like you heard us. Virtual purrs and hugs back at you!

Eric and Flynn said...

This looks like a good read. Thanks for referring it to us Katie. I know that if you say it's good, it is.

Sparkle said...

Katie, you did such a great job directing your human on doing the cover of Fin's book! We have a copy too and will be reviewing it at the end of the month!

Lisa, Jack and Baby said...

We got our copy of Fin's book too and we love the cover. Good job. Mom is so slow at getting to books (she's finishing one about a lady who raised orphaned fawns and it's taking forever) that we wonder if she'll ever start reading Fin's book to us. Sigh. We better get after her.

Jacqueline said...

We got our copy of HC last week! And we think you did a great design for the cover!

Karen Jo said...

The cover design is wonderful. I am trying to get my lazy Mom to order this book so she can read it to me, but she keeps putting it off. I will get it eventually, I think.

I am just so excited for you having your very own copy! And you're like my human who can't put a book down unless she needs her hands to do that stuff she calls work, whatever that is.

My mommy will have to investimigate.

So you're responsible for the cover design of Fin's book. How neat!

Ooops, that was mommy's blog that I, the Admiral answered you on. Sorry for the confusion. I will use my own blog as a jumping off place next time. Mommy got forgetful where she was.
