The Pet Parade Blog Hop No: 166 ~ Hosted by Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Love is Being Owned By A Husky & Barking from the Bayou

Supurr Friday Greetings pawesome Pals

Welcome to another Pet Parade! 

Oh where to begin... this week we finally managed to get a 'sample' of Smoochie's piddle, he's been a furry good boy of late with only one incident. The P.A. actually said, it's so typical when I want him to piddle on the floor he doesn't! MOL  So anyhoo the piddle was tested and the results are all purrfectly normal, in other wurds he doesn't have a medical issue that is causing his little purroblem.

So the vet has done his referral to see the kitty shrink and the P.A. now has to fill out a 10 page form and send it off, then paws crossed Smoochie will get his furst appointment furry soon, so we'll keep mew all posted.

In other news, it's been getting a little cooler and the nights have really drawn in resulting in much less patrolling time than we'd like, but the good news is; it's that wunderpurr time of the year when the P.A. starts making a fire in the wood-burner turning our sitting room into a totally tropical haven! MOL

We hope mew've all been having a totally epic week and look forward to finding out.

Oh and before we go, the Grande Finale of our epically epic adventure, Fast, Furry & Dangerous finally came to its thrilling conclusion on Tuesday and fur those of mew who asked, yes we have a new adventure in the pipeline and this one will quite literally blow your fur off.  We'll keep mew updated....

If mew missed anything this week, here's the latest links fur your purrusal!

Wordy on Wednesday with Biblio-Kitty Amber #15 featuring Bless Her Dead Little Heart

Welcome To

The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty

Supurr happy greetings fellow book lovers

I'm so furry sorry that I wasn't here last week, but due to unforeseen time restraints, things went a little pear-shaped! 

Anyhoo, I'm here now and I have a fab book to share with mew.

In other news our epically epic adventure: Fast, Furry & Dangerous finished yesterday, so if mew need a bit of excitement in your life this week, read it.

And rather than keeping mew hanging on while burble on about life, the universe and everything, here's this weeks selection.

This week on book reviews with Amber, I'm sharing

A Southern Ladies Mystery


This is the same author that Humphrey featured a few weeks ago with The Cat in The Stacks series, and we thoroughly enjoyed that series, so I made an executive decision and thought I'd try the authors new series.

To be honest when I read a series by one author and become invested in the characters and love the books, I do tend to shy away from any new series they may write because in a lot of instances it neffur feels the same and I don't know about mew, but I feel a little let down when this happens and wished I'd neffur bothered; I call it the disappointment factor.

That aside, I can safely say this this series is not like that at all, it's like an extension of the Cat in The Stacks series, as mew may remember that featured a beautiful Maine coon kitty called Diesel.  Diesel is back in this furst book doing his sleuthing thing with two elderly sisters, Miss An’gel and Miss Dickce Ducote while they are cat-sitting him after his owner takes a little vacation.

Murder comes to the town of Athena, following the unexpected arrival of an old school friend, Rosabelle.  Within the day, her entire family arrives on the doorstep and Rosabelle is convinced one of them is trying to kill her. 

It has all the usual twisty plot turns, inferences and red herrings to keep mew guessing, and it also had a few meowing out moments which really made the P.A. chuckle too - I had to shush her so I could keep listening... tsk tsk...

The book is full of southern charm and good manners, and I really like that more than mew could effur know! MOL

I see this as a highly purromising series and look forward to reading the next one.

Paperback copy: 304 pages

Audio Edition: 7 hours 41 mins long
