Once again this year to celebrate the season, Christmas and of course because I like the effect a lot, it has started snowing on The Cat’s Blog and my www.wickedlywonderfulwebsite www.thecatsdiary.com, or to be more accurate because as I explain in both my books Cat’s have a dreadful curse, we can’t tell a lie, it’s snowing all over The Cat’s Blog but only over the picture at the top of the page on my my www.wickedlywonderfulwebsite www.thecatsdiary.com.

I don’t know if you can see the snow in the picture below but I can truthfully say that it’s there (not being able to tell a lie is such a curse, I can tell you) maybe you should go to The Cat’s Blog and check out all the lovely snow for yourself.

There is also something new about the snow for this year on The Cat’s Blog and that is that you can make the snow go mad, change direction and even rather godlike make the snow stop! Just by using your mouse, track pad or if you are reading my The Cat’s Blog using an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch – your finger!

I wonder if that’s how god does the things he does? If that is there is a god ‘up there’ you have to imagine a Cat pointing his paw in a confused way ‘up’ as you read this bit!

Snow on Blog

Very soon this Christmasy kind Cat who writes blogs is going to bring you the ever popular Christmas lights to both The Cat’s Blog and my www.wickedlywonderfulwebsite www.thecatsdiary.com and yes don’t worry just like last year you will be able to pop, smash and generally destroy the pretty little twinkling lights when the ‘pleasure’ of all that Christmas fixed smile giving and general ‘joy’ gets the better of you and you feel an overriding urge to smash something.

While researching my latest and most wonderful (to date) book which if you have been living in a cave or Rochdale and haven’t heard is called ‘The Cat’s Travelogue’ I travelled the world and encountered strange people who erect bizarre signs in there very own edition of the English language.

Ladies and Gentlemen I give you “Fire Alarm Testes!” from sunny smog filled Shanghai.

Fire Alarm Testes Check How Long Too

What else can I add? Well I suppose the obvious what a load of rubbish, and did you see how long the brief Fire Alarm Test will take 8 hours! Mmh what an advanced nation!

I am a very innocent, nice and extremely well brought up Cat and so when I was trolling through India researching my latest blockbusting and unputdownable book called ‘The Cat’s Travelogue’ (available here The Cat’s Travelogue Paperback Edition) I couldn’t help but be confused by the sign below.

Odd Indian Road Sign  What Do They Mean

If anyone knows what on earth the Indians are on about do let me know! Or if you can guess why two young men in skirts are following an older man in orange shorts into an Accident Porn Area I would be interested to know. My theory is that the young men are planning a Porn Accident? Well I suppose they are in the right place aren’t they!

In the meantime if you want to read my wonderful travelogue do please click here for the The Cat’s Travelogue Paperback Edition or here for the Kindle edition The Cat’s Travelogue ebook.

The really great news is that my long awaited soontobemillionselling book ‘The Cat’s Travelogue’ is going to be available very soon any and everywhere and that means you can buy a book either in paper or ebook form in the very near future.

Speaking of my long awaited soontobemillionselling book ‘The Cat’s Travelogue,’ a wonder of a little book written by a Cat, one of the places I visited was Vietnam though because of signs such as the one below and other divine bureaucratic blunders the chapter on Vietnam was ‘sponsored’ by the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and then removed by me from the printed edition. Did you know that the Socialist Republic of Vietnam’s motto is “Independence – Freedom – Happiness” – if you ever did!

It’s my fervent hope that you enjoy my latest book ‘The Cat’s Travelogue’ more than the menu item below and that you tell all of your friends to buy at least one copy and make this clever Cat very happy.

One thought that went through my furry head when I was sitting outside the restaurant in the heat and pollution of Ho Chi Minh City reading the menu below was this “what was the ‘Lime'” if you see what I mean, “do the Vietnamese serve a Citrus fruit with their Fried Horse Crap or is the ‘Lime’ on the menu the white powdery stuff that they add to cement, gardens and the graves of adulterers in days gone by?” Sadly to this day I don’t know because I didn’t order this menu item – what do you think I am stupid?

Don’t forget that like ‘Getting Out Excerpts from A Cat’s Diary’ ‘The Cat’s Travelogue’ will make a wonderful Christmas present.

Here is a clue to another of the places which I visited when doing my research for my soon to be latest blockbusting book The Travelogue which will be available in all good book stores, www.amazon.com and of course my www – wickedly wonderful website very soon.

For years we have known that the French are a little err… anal and frankly their films and indeed their culture are really a long way up their own um how do I put this..? I am sure you get the picture without me being too graphic here, but at long last here is the long awaited proof that the French are what we have always believed.

“Le Fart Location de Films et de jeux” as the sign says doesn’t only concentrate on French Movie Rental you can rent explosive French Games as well aren’t you lucky?

Today was so busy and believe it or not this kindly Cat not only pitched in with distributing Cat litter over the kitchen floor I also did a whole pile of ironing.

Yes that is right me ironing if you ever did! Actually there is nothing to it really and I was quiet impressed by how flat I had ironed the pile of sheets and formed a little impression of my body as I slept a comfy pile of sheets in the ironing basket.

I have tried ironing before but fell off the ironing board when I was having a rather vigourous dream about teaching mice not to hide in walls, frankly I have never actually seen a mouse hide in any wall in our house, but it was on Tv in a documentary called Tom and Jerry and so it must be true!

There was a mixed reaction to my ironing efforts from the humans though, both sadly rather negative.

The first was “look at this pile of ironing!” so far so good I thought to my rather pleased self, “it is covered in fur!” Really some people are just not happy with any helping paw are they?

The second comment came from ‘him’ if you know what I mean and have read my un-put-down-able best selling book ‘he’ said something rather odd I thought, “that Cat has got to go!” as usual his effort was half finished like his DIY, because he failed to say where it was that I should go.

But looking on the bright side, something I always do, now I am excited, I am obviously going on some sort of trip, as a reward for my ironing I expect! Honestly I can’t wait for my forthcoming adventure, can you?

Would you believe what a loyal fan sent me over the weekend? The above, yes that is right and I was impressed to say the least with our German cousins’ taste! No wonder Angela Merkel has had a bit of a smile on her face recently in the depths of the Euro crisis, she must have been reading my book!

Aren’t the Germans clever as well, the translation from English into German seems to have gone well and none of the meaning (as far as I can see) of what I said in my book has been lost in translation – well if the title “Getting Out Excerpts from a Cat’s Diary” is anything to go by that is.

Mind you I don’t think that they have got everything right if you look closely, six lines beneath the title of the book and printed in orange they describe me as an “Englische Bucher,” does that mean “English Butcher?”

Mmh sounds like the Mice have been talking!

So now it is accurate to say that you can buy my wonderful book at Amazon.com or indeed at Amazon.de.

I wonder what the Germans reading my wonderful masterpiece thought about the escape tunnels, as the idea for digging them was based on a World War II film I saw called “The Great Escape?”

Actually I think I know the answer to that question and it is “oh we see now, so that is how they did it!” – But said with a German accent tee hee.

Elephant in a Tree.jpg

Hello all of my sad and faithful readers. I am sorry that you might feel a little neglected at the moment, but I have been doing so many things that I have even had to start multi tasking my multi tasking and then there is the snow ho hum.

But please don’t worry I of course I haven’t forgotten about you lovely cuddly readers, Cats are like Elephants (as the picture of good old Ginger in his Elephant suit demonstrates) we don’t forget.

Well to be honest we aren’t that much like Elephants on the outside though, our noses are small thank goodness, and our ears only stick out a bit, and then their is the size… but I think you know what I mean.

I am sorry that the picture of Ginger is a bit out of focus and frankly not up to the usual standard that, I know, you expect from my wonderful blog but this good looking Cat was laughing too much to keep his paws still when he took it, Ginger is such a comedian. I am only glad that I managed to straighten up once to snap the snap if you see what I mean, I was doubled with laughter the whole time.

Ginger kept shaking the tree and whining “I’m stuck, please help, I’m going to fall,” which worried the hell out of the lunchtime shoppers below I can tell you!

Sadly Ginger is in a cast at the moment and I don’t mean in yet ‘another’ revival of Lord Lloyd Webbers musical “Cats” which borrowed all of its creative genius from his usual sources! Oh no, Ginger, being the clown that he is decided it would be a great idea to do a paw stand shortly after the picture above was taken and… well what can I say it wasn’t a particularly great idea at all!

But you have to hand it to Ginger, the Elephant suit was a masterpiece! It is the opinion of all Cats that we start wearing ‘suits,’ because for too long female humans have been wearing Cat suits and now it’s our turn.

One small problem with the Elephant suit we all agreed upon was the sheer weight of it, we could hardly move with all of that padding strapped on, I felt like at least two Mrs. Doubtfires I have to say.

But one thing we did agree on is that we will be wearing other fancy dress costumes so the next time you seen your favourite movie star on TV you might take a closer look to check that it isn’t a Cat in more than a Hat!

A lot of people ask me about me, and although I am a subject that I never tire of speaking about I feel do have to admit that I feel dreadfully limited when talking about myself and that is simply because I am wonderful, have done so much, am so good looking and of course have endless talent all of which means I just don’t have enough time to tell people who are interested in me, about me, to say nothing of the people who aren’t interested in me.

Of course I have pondered what to do about this dilemma and happily have come up with what I am sure you will agree is quite a brilliant little ruse.

I thought I would, on an occasional basis, share some of my likes, dislikes, thoughts and so much more with you in little one line statements of truth!

It is better to call them ‘truths’ so that no one bothers to check to see if they are actually true! Have you noticed that it is something politicians learned many years ago around the time they also learned to shed their skins, to say nothing of the art of pretending to be in control when things have got so bad that if they were driving a car instead of running a country the steering wheel would have come off in their hands just as the speedo reached 160 mph, which of course converted for our metric only readers is um… very fast indeed.

So here, you lucky people is my little fact of the day, it is of course all about me and utterly true!

The largest number of books I’ve sat on, at one time, is 13!

Now don’t forget that you can also discover so much more about me if you buy my masterpiece of a book “Getting Out Excerpts from a Cat’s Diary” which is still available at Amazon.com for next to nothing and have been described as wonderful not only by the author!

If you want my honest opinion regarding extraordinary rendition, I think I would prefer an extraordinary one than just the norm! Wouldn’t you?

This is an extract from my latest book “Thoughts from a Good Looking Cat!”

Have I wished all of my lovely cuddly readers of my book, blog and my ‘www‘- wickedly, wonderful website a very Happy Christmas and more money in your pockets in the New Year? I hope so, I forget things sometimes. But I rarely forget to mention that you can still get my book at Amazon.com in time for Christmas and you really should you know, it would make me very happy and of course reading it will make you sublimely happy I promise. (Insert winning smile here).
