Before I give you any giveaway details, I wanted to share a crazy cat story, which one of the drawings in Simon’s Cat reminded me of. As many of you know, I am owned by two cats, Thelma (in box below) and Cairo (left, reading Simon’s Cat with me; click on photos to enlarge). Years ago, I woke up one morning lying on my belly, clutching something in my hand. When I opened my eyes and looked at it, it turned out to be a dead rodent, which Cairo had kindly deposited in the bed with me. Luckily my mother was visiting, so when I screamed, she came rushing in and took care of things. (Again luckily, there was no blood to be seen anywhere.) I vaguely remembered being woken in the night by Cairo running around madly, but I’d been too groggy to pay much attention.
More recently, both Cairo and I spotted a mouse running across the kitchen floor and under the fridge. Cairo then spent the rest of the day standing guard in front of the fridge, hoping the mouse would reappear. I must admit I’m kinda glad that (a) the mouse didn’t reappear and hasn’t been seen or heard from since and (b) Cairo is now too geriatric to be chasing (and killing) mice!
OK, enough about that, on to the giveaway details!
