A little less than a month ago, I pawticipated in my first ever Twitter pawty. It was organized by Baby Patches of Nip and Bones and the beautiful Sparkle. It was a virtual book signing pawty for Sparkle’s book!
I was very excited and liked every minute of it. The beautiful Sparkle answered questions and pawtographed books like a pro. Of course, being a kitty, she is a pro!
The pawty ended with the olive on the tuna cake when I was first to answer the question asked to win a pawtographed copy! Look at the beauty on the right! (click for a bigger version)
“Dear Sparkle: Cat-to-Cat Advice from the World’s Foremost Feline Columnist” is a must-have for any feline, my furriends, and for many reasons.
The book is full of colored pictures of the beautiful Sparkle, and this only is a reason to own it. But the book is so much more.
Sparkle has collected letters from kitties from around the world that sent her their questions about kitty issues that you and I may well have encountered: from toys and games to dealing with strange human habits to litter box issues. Sparkle answers with wits, humor and charm (is there anything more charming than a Ladycat with repartie?).
I liked that the book was divided into sections related to different kinds of issues. I also absolutely loved the little “Sparkle Says” tidbits of wisdom here and there.
The book reads well and you can either read it from cover to cover, or pick and choose a letter and Sparkle’s answer. Even if you don’t have the issue mentioned in the letter, there is always something to learn from the expert. What better expert can you ask for as a kitty than a kitty? This book has been written by a kitty and you can clearly see it.
Open-minded humans will read this book and take it as a way to better understand their
master kitty friend.
Conclusion: we give it four paws!
I mentioned above that I answered a question to win the book. It was about her next book, and it is going to be about cat rules for humans. I am eagerly waiting for this book and Kitshka and I have started applying rule #882, as you can see below (we were on the human’s hubby’s chair).
THANK YOU Sparkle, for this great book!
Furriends, Christmas is coming, this could be added to your list to Santa Paws ;-)
Yes indeed, that Sparkle and her human are so very talented!!!
great review!!! I am going to be reviewing it in November…can’t wait to receive it!
What a great book Texas, your on a roll at the moment for prezzies.. Have a great Sunday xx00xx
We have that book! So far, our Mommy is proving to be unruly and nearly un-trainable.
Great book review Texas! you and Kitshka appear to be enjoying it very much. Sounds like just the right reference book for every cat who owns a human to have on their bookshelf!
Kitty Hugs, Sammy
Thanks SO much for the great review, Texas! I was really happy when you won a copy!
You know, I used to not want cats because I thought they were so spoiled BUT now, when I see spoiled cats, like you two, it makes me smile real happy. I want to read that book!!!!
We’re not spoiled, we’re deserving.
Really nice review.
Great review! Austin can’t wait for the next book! Thinks he probably wrote most of it already!!

Nós gostamos da regra #882, mas preferimos a regra #601.
Congrats! You know we began the trend to post book reviews with cats and using the 1 to 4 paws rating like at our review giveaway today.
Thanks for bringing this to the cat blogosphere!
That is a wonnderful book! We hazzes a copy and the Human reads it to me sometimes but then there are some things in it she says she does not want me to know. Hmmmm.
