It’s Christmas Giveaway time, and one lucky Cool for Cats UK reader will win a copy of The Latest Mews: Learn to Speak Cat 2 by Anthony Smith!

The Latest Mews is a humorous take on the world from a feline perspective, and would make a great Christmas gift for any cat lover.  Actually, I’d better make that any cat lover over the age of 12, as a couple of the cartoons contain very minor swearage.

Many of the cartoons are based around visual puns and witty one-liners, so if you’re a fan of comedians like Tim Vine and Milton Jones, you’ll definitely appreciate Anthony Smith’s cat cartoons.

I Got Interviewed About Cat Stuff!

oz-mr-curious-logo

Lucy, who writes the blog for the splendid online cat and dog boutique, Oz & Mr Curious, has very kindly published an interview she did with me recently.  So, if you’d like to experience me wittering on about all things cat, head on over to the Oz & Mr Curious Blog.

Lucy asked for a pic of me with one of the HQ Cats, but, seeing as my lot are all so uncooperative, I could only supply a photo of me with a foster kitten.  This is the pic I use for my cat-sitting website, and I was aiming for the Trustworthy, Caring and Responsible look.  But it ended up more Bored Woman Strangles Kitten.  For the record, I would just like to state that I am not trying to strangle that kitten: she lived to see another day and was adopted, along with one of her sisters, by a very nice family in Hither Green.

Season’s Greetings from Ethel, the Ginger Cat-mas Tree!

Ethel and myself would like to wish all you lovely Cool for Cats UK readers, and your feline friends, a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful 2014.  (If you’re wondering why Ethel looks so cheesed-off, it’s because the bag of cat treats used to entice her into the box had suddenly moved outside the box!)

I’d like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to everyone who reads/subscribes to Cool for Cats UK – it’s very gratifying to know that I’m not alone in the quest for well-designed cat products!

I’m very busy cat-sitting at this time of year, so will be taking a short break from blogging.  Normal service resumes on 2nd January 2014, but in the meantime I’ll keep the Cool for Cats UK Facebook page updated with cat pics!

Happy Cat-mas and a purr-filled New Year!

It’s been a few months since I’ve come across anything worthy of a WTF? Award, and I was beginning to think The Well of Hideous Cat Stuff had finally run dry.  Not so.  Ladies and gentlemen, I give to you the Aykley Furniture Double Cat Bowl,  guaranteed to bestow an air of quiet sophistication upon anyone who gives it house room.

Available here for £19.97, if you’re interested!

Caturday Cat Pics #16

This week it’s a Caturday Cat Pics Holiday Special!  I’ve just spent a very windswept week away in the olde worlde East Sussex town of Rye.  I had hoped to return laden with snaps of cats looking cute in picturesque locations, but it turns out cats are a bit thin on the ground in Rye – or word had got round that a strange woman was out stalking them with a camera, and they’d all gone into hiding!  However, I did happen upon this gang of three moggies…
