Catnip, Plushie Balls, and Q-Tips is a must read by all cat owners and cat lovers. Each little tale is an exact representation of each and every cat I've ever owned or had the privilege to know and cuddle. Cats are the cutest little monsters.
Each poem is title by the cat currently being described and the number of the entry. Socks #3 is why I didn't burn candles often. When I did have one lit and had to leave the room where it was residing, I picked the candle up (I only burn jar candles) and carried the candle with me. I can't imagine the scent of burning whiskers or fur is pleasant. While we never had an accidents, there was a close call. From then on, candles and cats were watched like a hawk.
Every little poem in this collection bring back a memory of one of the many cats I've owned or known over the years. While my husband and I are currently cat free (our last one left us to join his sister and brother last December 2022) I enjoyed reading about Elsa, Socks and the anonymous cats.
I was provided a copy of this book.
Read a Book Excerpt:
The magnets are so cute
that I must knock them off
but get yelled at for this,
so the new approach is soft.
I sit by the fridge
staring at those squares
and when Human isn’t looking
I lick with tongue hairs.
All was going good
until one was quite sticky
leaving a bad taste,
and I’m not so picky.
I bite at the air
to get rid of the taste
then knock down that magnet;
good riddance, post-haste.**
