But first we have gratuitous gorgeousness (me!)
You can see I am keeping a strong hold on my back paw, as earlier I was scaredified by an inappropriate digit being laid on it in a furtive way! Now I have to be alert! In fact I think we all need to be lertful for stray fingers and pokey things! Editor’s note: All I did was touch his beauteous little paw and he went into a frenetic frenzy of freakiness! He now is keeping a firm grip on his paw and it’s within view at all times!
Gratuitous Gifts - We have been the happy recipients of quite a few tangible things of late i.e. things that have arrived by snail mail. We won the Silly Saturday Caption contest over at The Teacher’s Pets and got a whole bunch of lovely goodies :)
Thank you April and the gang for including us in and thinking our caption was silly enough :)
We have also been one of the five lucky winners of the Sparkle Puss children’s book from Cat Wisdom 101
As you can see, I am really into it! This is a beautifully produced book set in Penzance, Cornwall in the UK about a cat called Sparkle (!) who has adventures while trying to save her friend the chocolate apothecary from losing his business. It has cats, mystery and chocolate. Who can resist? Thank you Layla :)

PS If you missed me doing my dapper benevolent thing over at Zee & Zoey’s the other day, here I am announcing the shelter who won my portion of the Cat Ruler of the World goodies.
Sorry for the length, but business is business! Next time I will be introducing a new CATachresis feature and it will be much shorter!
