I Have Cats ( & a Give Away)!

Hi buddies!
  Most of you know that I'm part of a family that includes a few kitties. Mom's very happy that I usually get along with them, and I have to admit, they do keep me on my toes!

  Speaking of mom, she attended a book signing at the Clinton Book Shop to see Simon Tofield, the creator of the wonderful (according to her) "Simon's Cat" videos and Francesco Marciuliano, the author of "I Could Pee on This - And Other Cat Poems" and the "Sally Forth" comic strip.

 (The moderator, Francesco Marciuliano and Simon Tofield)
   She had a great time! The two discussed how their careers began and how they became successful at doing what they love. Most impressive was their innate understanding of cats. I still can't figure my feline siblings out!

  After a "Q & A" session, Simon demonstrated his technique for drawing the Cat and his other characters. Francesco read a couple of his poems, which mom thought were hilarious! *Shaking coonhound head* silly, I know!

    Now for the good news! To celebrate the joys of sharing our lives with kitties, mom bought an extra copy of Simon's latest book "Simon's Cat in Kitten Chaos" to give away to one lucky winner!

(She asked him to sign it "Friend of Prudence" and he even sketched a laughing dog!)

 Thanks fur stopping by buddies!

Now for the fine print: We received no compensation for this post. Mom bought the book for the purpose of giving it away to one of our readers.
