Mittens on Monday

Breaking News! Our book was reviewed by the delightful Caren from Cat Chat with Caren and Cody. Caren writes about her life with her cat Cody and really great book reviews. She loved our book and called it delightful! Yippee!

"Housecat CONFIDENTIAL" is witty, funny, touching, charming, thought provoking  and sure to strike a chord with anyone who owns or has been owned by a cat. Fin's insight and first-paw experience on being a housecat will resonate with you as it did with me."

Makes me want to zoom about the house! Mom too! Okay back to the regularly scheduled post starring me... What Mom? Mittens!

Yes friends Mittens is hogging MY blog and apparently MY porch. I was so excited to get some porch time this fine weekend. I sniffed about the porch only to discover it smelled just like... Mittens!

Yep the old boy is making himself quite at home on MY porch while I am holed up on the inside. I said he could have full roam of the Front Yard, not My porch! 

I was ready to check out my side yard when Dad scooped me up and deposited me in the house so I wouldn't run into the intruder. Well I never!

Mittens, enjoying my food, my sun puddles, and my scritches from MY parents! I am a giver, but I've got my eyes on you bub. 

And that "Who Me?" innocent look isn't going to fly with me either. I invented that look!
Hey, is that MY FOOD too?!

  3. Wow Mittens has some nerve!!! OMC yes look at that look of feigned innocence!! OMC!! You must put a stop to this at once!!

    Thank you for YOUR wonderful comments about the review and for adding it to your blog!! I am the one that should be thanking YOU for making me smile soooooo much while reading it and for bringing back such lovely memories. Many of the events you mentioned in your book I experienced with my first kitty, Bobo....it is different with Cody since he has a Sheltie brother...Bobo was the only pet......so much like Fin! Thank you for affording me the opportunity to review your book and for the many smiles you bring me with your blog as well!

  4. I saw that review - it was pawsome! Not so pawsome is Mittens hanging around like that - you MUST do something, Fin!

  5. OMC!! Fin, darling-you must nip-it-in-the-butt
    I say!! NO intruders are welcome, even as generous as you have been --the nerve of him
    sheesh--I think a true fang showing is in order:
    (Just my humble opinion of course . . .)

  6. Oh my, that Mittens is taking over the place!!!!

    What is it that you are mumbling, SS? Did I hear 'cute'?

    Now that review is good, but certainly no less than what you book deserves. We really enjoy it and so would any cat lovers/owners/minions.

  12. Mittens looks very nice. Or at least he knows how to put on that appealing look. But I do understand your concerns, especailly about the food. I don't have a clear solution for you.

  13. Look out Fin, he will be moving in next thing you know.

  14. We think Mittens is definitely trying to steal the human's hearts, Fin! Our Mom has already fallen in love with him...

  17. Well, he is quite a handsome mancat, you have to agree.

  18. Just wait until there is no room on the bed next to your mom Fin!!

  19. Oh well, many small annoyances can be ignored in the glow of successful authorhood! : ) Congrats on a fine review Fin!

  20. That is a great book review! Of course it's a wonderful book to read and so much fun writing it!!! Mittens is cute! Fin, not to worry, you are the cutest of all! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  21. Mittens is very cute Fin. I bet Mom could get him his own food so he wouldn't eat yours. It might be fun to have a friend
    I am sure the review of your book is great because the book is so good. Glad she gave a good review though. Take care and have a fun week.

  22. Well, it's one thing to hang out on your porch...but stealing your foods and scritches from your humans?? Fin, you gotta put a stop to this! What's next?? Inside time???

    ReplyDelete
  23. Just keep in mind, Fin, that Mittens is jealous of you! He might have the outdoors and your porch, but it gets awfully cold outside (and wet, too!).
    He peers in the window at you, lounging on the warm fuzzy carpet, and wishes he could trade places.
