Piglove and Gentlestitches are hosting this reading of a story. We intend to do a book review also. We read many cat books because of our story time every night, some are good and some are alright. There are very few books out there that we do not like at least some part of the story. However, books written from the cat’s perspective have a special place in our hearts. The following book employs this technique with great success. The book we are reviewing is called, “Black Cat and The Accidental Angel” written by Elaine Faber. This book is the third and as yet the final book in the series. From the moment we started reading……we were hooked. The story begins where the previous story, “Black Cat and The Lethal Lawyer” leaves off. Thumper and his family are heading home from their visit in Texas. They are not far from home when suddenly, the SUV is in an accident and the carrier with the cats in it is thrown from the vehicle, landing in an awkward place that is impossible for the family to find. The adventure begins as Angel and Thumper try to find their way home. One massive problem exists, Thumper has lost his memory and doesn’t even know who the cat is with him.
These two cats have many adventures while attempting to walk home. Mom laughed, sniffled and down right cried. She got that attached to the kitties and their struggles. The plot twists kept her reading when she normally would quit for the night. The ending came way too quickly for us. So in short, I would say if you want a boring book to read so you can fall asleep quickly, don’t get, “Black Cat and the Accidental Angel.” However, if you want an excellent read with cats that are real to life, DO buy, “Black Cat and the Accidental Angel.” The only thing left for us to do is get Elaine Faber to write a fourth book in the, “Black Cat” series.

The author forwarded pictures of the cats that were her muses for Thumper and Angel. I thought you would be as delighted to see them as we were.
This charmer’s name is Boots alias Black Cat and Thumper.
Meet gorgeous Amber, alias Noe Noe and Angel.
These precious kitties live with the author and happily share their lives.
Now, without further adieu mom is going to read part of the first chapter of, “Black Cat and The Accidental Angel” on video. Please excuse her feet as she was relaxing and laying back.
Mom only read a portion of the first chapter. To see how the story goes, you’ll just have to get the book.
Hope you’ve enjoyed peeking in our bedroom…we enjoyed the company. Ya all come back now…..ya hear. MOL
My stars, it was hot as hell fire here today. The mercury climbed to 26C. That’s 78F for you southern neighbours. Now, you may laugh and say, “What’s her problem. That’s not hot.” For us 80F is hot. We are used to cooler weather. Peeps wear shorts and t-shirts when the temperature gets to -3C.
I tried very hard to get Kali to come outside and relax. C’mon Kali, its cool out here. Go away Shoko. I’m not coming out unless I wear protective clothing. My furs might catch fire. Ok, wait until I get my gear on. There. I can deal better with the heat this way.You know Kali you look like a dork. You remind me of Richard Simmons, if he were lucky enough to be a feline. Aww… but I won’t go funny in the head from the sun. That’s because you’re already funny in the head Kali.
SHOKO – black KALI – orange

What a wonderful Crisp Mouse. We are so lucky to have such great friends. Mom and dad were excellent at interpreting our signals for what we craved the most of all.
Christmas morning found us all ready to dive into the prezzies whether they were ours or not. Dad kyboshed that idea smartly and gave us our first present each. We looked so organized and well…. you know, Dudley do right. Then mom said oh what did Shoko get from her Secret Santa?….. and I was there like a shot.
Turns out my Secret Santa was Pete Hartley, Co-Patrol Leader of The ThunderCats Den in Cat Scouts. He sent us a gorgeous feather wand….I’ve never seen so many feathers all in one place. Thank you Pete H. I love it. Here is Kali digging into some nip from the Rockies. This was sent by mom’s brother and wife and their kitties. Uncle John lives right smack dab in the mountains and the soil produces thee BESTEST nip EVER. Thanks Uncle and Aunty. Mom decided to open one of her presents also. Hurry up….I’m dying to know what it is. Carol Burnett dvd’s…um well,that’s nice. You can take them for your IV Treatments, put earplugs in, and sit there and laugh. Peeps will think you’re nuts! hahaha This is our box from Einstein and Buddy Of Timmy’s Commentary and family. You know, I’ve never seen a roll of dehydrated chicky boobs in my WHOLE life but these guys found one and sent it to us. We’re fixed for chicky boobs for a year. Wow. We each got a personalized card from our honeys, a crinkle ball…I never saw one of those either, some nip, a kicker and so many things from these wonderful mancats. Notice the black kicker Bacon from Piglove sent us. It’s unbelievable. You can’t realy see the Friskies in a box shaped like a cat head from Easy but they’re in mom’s mess.
This is for ME? I like it…..chicky boobs galore.
Mom, Kali and I thank all the furfriends that sent Christmas Cards and we have attempted to make a slide show….don’t laugh….we tried.
What a fun and filling day. The turkey was scrumptious.
