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.
