U is for Under the Paw

Hi everyone! Today is U day in the A-Z Blogging Challenge. I am recommending Under the Paw: Confessions of a Cat ManΒ  by Tom Cox. He lives in England and has written four books about life with his cats, this is the first of the four books. They are mostly funny, but you may cry a little too ( I did).


Sammy has a Cat Scout friend visiting. Flat Mango, has been here for over a week. I feel bad that we haven’t had much fun, but this week we will. Here is Phoebe telling her all about her Purrince:blog1 and here is Sammy sharing a snack with her: blog3



  1. Another great book to check out. Love the photos with Flat Mango! I’m going to talk to mom about doing Flats of us so we can visit our girl/boy friends!!!

    1. That would be a lot of fun. Toby, you should join Cat Scouts, it is a lot of fun.My Sammy could show you around.

  2. How nice that Mango is visiting! She mentioned that at Scouts yesterday. I hope more Scouts will continue visiting – it’s FUN!

    Love, Sammy

  3. I’m really enjoying your A to Z posts, as I’m learning about so many books that I really need to get my hands on. And how fun to have Flat Mango visiting you! I’m sure you’ll many good times with her this week. Purrs!

    1. Thank you, I am glad you are enjoying the posts. We love having flat company- they are the best and don’t eat much πŸ™‚

  4. N joy yur visit with Mango guys…may bee grammie will visit & give everee one a dollar { hint; hint } while mango is ther !!!! πŸ™‚ β™₯β™₯β™₯

  5. It is impressive that you have a U book–we don’t know about these. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you – there was another one too called The Unlikely Cat Lady, but there were parts I didn’t like so I couldn’t recommend it.

  6. Bravo to your mom!! How long did it take her to find books with all the alphabet?
    Hugs Madi your bfff

    1. Thank you, not too long- I think she went through her bookcase and then researched on Goodreads for about an hour then ordered them from the library.

  7. Flat Mango is very pretty! You make all the books sound so interesting. I’m waiting to see what you find for “Q”. Maybe there’s a cat quotation book?

    1. Thank you for the compliment. I try to keep reviews short and sweet. I already used my Quote book earlier in the challenge ( I used the author’s last name). Q was Quasi the author of The World is Still Your Litter Box πŸ™‚

  8. Sounds like another great read. And me’s sure Mango unnerstands. We’s sendin’ lots of purrayers and hugs to you all.

    Luv ya’

    1. I don’t mind crying a little, but I don’t like books where any cat has to suffer- this one is a good book.

  10. Aww the cat pictures are so cute! I’m so sorry to read that Spooky didn’t make it. Losing a beloved pet is always so hard. You gave Spooky a great life!

  11. We have never heard of this author either. His books sound fun.
    Having a flat cat for a visit would also be fun! We bet she is a very small eater ;p
