The Little Book of Bob: Life Lessons from a Street-wise Cat

Hi everyone! I have a great book to review today. At the end of the post, I have an update on Noel and Prancie and the winner of the Pirate giveaway.

*Disclosure- I was given a copy of The Little Book of Bob: Life Lessons from a Street-wise Cat by James Bowen in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are my own.

I am sure you have all heard of Bob. You have probably read A Street Cat Named Bob or have seen the film. As you know, Bob is an English cat that rescued his human at the same time his human rescued him. This book is short, only 166 pages, but filled with wisdom. The wisdom of Bob and what he has taught James in their years together.

Prancie thinks they may be cousins

I think we would all agree that our cats have taught us how to appreciate life. Bob has done the same for James. Some things he writes about are Our happiness lies within and believe in yourself. He goes on to explain how Bob taught these lessons.

I highly recommend this book for all fans of Bob and cat lovers in general. Release date is October 22nd, you can pre-order on Amazon, click here.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday What are YOU Reading?

The winners of The Pirate Day giveaway are Charlee and Chaplin of Oceanside Animals. Congratulations!

Noel is hanging in there still. We got very bad news about Prancie this past Friday. The ultrasound showed a tumor on her liver and her gallbladder. The internist feels it is cancer, but the only way to be sure is biopsy and she is to frail for that. She is on prednisone and continuing with fluids. We are praying it buys several months of time. Our hearts are broken. We can’t imagine a world without Prancie in it.

I will try to blog on Thursday and Friday all depending how these two are doing.


It’s Monday ! What Are You Reading?

Happy Monday everyone! We will share more about our Christmas all week. And today I am  going to try a new hop.

007I guess word has gotten out that I love cats- I got 2 cat signs, a Grumpy puppet, 3 cat books ( one is Lola’s-YAY! ), 2 cat coloring books,a notepad and gloves.

008And thank you Mom for these incredible flannel sheets.

014Snowball loves the Yeoww! Catnip Candy Cane from her boyfriend Pierrot of Lucy’s Lounge

009And Sammy loves the cowboy hat his friend, Cat Scout Charles sent him along with some fun catnip toys. And I got a beautiful snowflake ornament from him and his Mom too.

016Stinky opened a cute little mousie from Carol.

013And KaTwo opened her 3 gifts from Grammie  today.

Carol was very sweet to make a slideshow of my kitties opening gifts.

Thank you Carol!

And now for that hop- It’s Monday! What Are you Reading? is hosted by Kathryn of  Book Date

This is a hop to tell about what you have been reading or what you plan to read- it can be any genre. I just finished A Gift From Bob by James Bowen. I am sure most of you have read the original story about how Bob came into James’ life and saved him from addiction. This tells of one of their early Christmases together, Bob is an amazing kitty.

I am also almost done reading Good Mourning by Elizabeth Meyer. It is a true story about a rich young lady who chooses to work for a funeral home after planning her own father’s funeral. This funeral home is on 5th Avenue and deals with the rich, famous and even some mobsters. I know it sounds like an odd choice to read, but being that there is no escaping death, I figured I might as well read about it.

I actually read 5 books at once, but this post is already longer than my usual so 2 will have to do. See you tomorrow.
