Call it misfortune or privilege, but I am in the position of being the owner to six cats that often leave their daily musings around the house in the form of minutes from meetings, lists, diary entries and even graffiti on the walls. Just don’t ask me what they use to write such slogans as(…)
I’m delighted to announce the official release of my fourth book, Man vs Cat. After two instalments of the Elencheran Chronicles - Fezariu’s Epiphany and A World Apart – and a short story collection - Dark is the Day, Dead is the Night - I am entering the world of non-fiction with the story of the six cats that own(…)
Review: The Truth About Cats: Notes from the Feline Underbelly I live in a house with six cats so you could say I have witnessed my share of their traits and destructive antics. Molly Brandenburg’s The Truth About Cats is an illustrated guide to the world of felines designed to raise a smile and a(…)
Join Vickie Johnstone and David M. Brown for their Raining Cats and Dogs Blog Tour, where cats and dogs run wild on blogs! David M. Brown and Vickie Johnstone are taking their cats and dogs on tour. Whether the world is ready for mayhem from the moggies or disaster from the doggies is another matter!(…)
In December, Vickie Johnstone (author of The Kiwi Series and 3 Heads and A Tail) and David M. Brown (author of Man vs. Cat) are acknowledging that they could well spend more than on their pets than they do on their partners. Will it be the cat equivalent of socks? Or worse, a tangerine and(…)
Over the last thirty years I have owned many pets. When I was born my parents already owned an English sheepdog named Suzy, who didn’t take kindly to the arrival of another screaming baby – I was the second of two sons. Throughout my childhood we also had goldfish, gerbils, hamsters, even terrapins at one(…)
Yesterday marked the #arggghsome launch of A World Apart and we had great fun with a blogger competition (still ongoing), everyone competition (still ongoing), renaming our cats and raising money for the RSPCA (still ongoing) and a Tweet chat. One of the most popular tools was introduced to us by author Alison DeLuca, who gave us the(…)
Mr B knows better than anyone that when it comes to our cats, I like them to take centre-stage – and even if we’re celebrating the launch of his new book A World Apart, he’s going to have to accept that the furry ones are going to be just as involved! We were actually able to(…)
Wordless Wednesday: Welcome to Elenchera My Wordless Wednesday today is welcoming you to the fictional world of Elenchera. With David’s second novel, A World Apart, ready to launch, our hearts and minds are pretty much buried in Elenchera right now, so it seemed only fair to take you there too! What’s got you wordless this(…)
To an animal lover, having to give up a pet is like having to give up one of your children. Sadly, every single day pet owners are forced to part ways with their furry little pals when they move into a new home. What would you do if you found out that your new home(…)
Wordless Wednesday: Majestic Cats My Wordless Wednesday today is celebrating the majesty of cats and how better to do that than with this picture of the beautiful Asrielle. Kriss, also known as The Cabin Goddess, owns this beautiful creature and said: ”Her name is Asrielle, not after the only female smurf but a song by Deadhorse,(…)

This is actually quite an old picture but I came across it yesterday and thought it would be a perfect Awww Monday pick! It really is true that cats get(…)

I’ve been playing about with Tagxedo a little recently and I love the amazing word clouds you can make – everything from a shooting star shape to a bird! I decided to ‘Tagxedo’ my Twitter feed and this was the result: Inspired this week? Leave me a comment and let me know what by!
This week (and every week!) I’ll be taking part in Awww Mondays, posting a weekly dose of cuteness. To find out more about ‘Awww Monday’, click here. To be fair, this snap of Frodo is more likely to inspire ‘ARGH!’ than ‘Aww’… but I still couldn’t resist! What’s made you go ‘Awww’ this Monday?
Please enjoy my – almost – Wordless Wednesday post with this shot of Frodo. He is a perfect cat to take pictures of because he’s too lazy to move when he sees the camera…
Please enjoy my – almost – Wordless Wednesday post with this shot of the cats. They are ‘helping’ with a furniture move and some DIY. Or not… you decide!
I love my cats but there are moments when they cause me great distress, albeit unwittingly. Tonight it was our cat Kain – a born hunter – who presented me with a total quandary. Normally he jumps onto the door handle when he wants to come in but tonight I could hear him crying outside. (…)
