I've just got my paws on this breaking news in the cat world! Oh yes, you're right nothing gets past this eagle eyed Abyssinian unseen... ;) It seems that A.S. Cat's latest Press Release made it's way to my secret paw-mail address, so now I can share with you all this excerpt from it. Golly gosh, I think we may well find a new influx of British Cat Bloggers arriving here soon once they read this and come for a visit. I mean who can resist the power of the Blogsphere?! :)
Subjest: A.S. Cat has Abyssinians in an Uproar
For Release: Exclusive to Cat World
Today's Date: 12th November 2008
A.S. Cat, emerging literary icon of the UK Pet World with his Life in the Cat’s Lane diary, has at least one breed of pedigree cats “spitting slugs,” if heated comment on the Isis Meows blog is anything to go by.While an online cat crit from one Isis D’Lynx gave the self-made moggy’s book a basic paws up, it nevertheless ended on a tail twitching note. Notably, Isis – who describes herself as “a beautiful pedigree female Abyssinian (cat) who lives in Buckinghamshire with her lovely half-brother Ramses who's a sorrel Abyssinian and Tigmut'hep who's big and black and often grumpy” -- his misguided assumption that all pedigree cats … are over-bred and useless. The result to date has been a furore of whisker-twitching responses posted on the Isis Meows webblog (isismeows.blogspot.com), which is clearly devoted to giving a voice to Abyssinians worldwide.
Now Cat awaits crits from other Abyssinian reviewers from as far a field as the West Coast of America and France who are likely to be heavily biased by Isis remarks.
Never fear I'll be setting A.S. Cat right about the identity of my friends! Honestly I think he sees Abyssinians as elitists... Far from it we like pretty much all cats and most beans too - especially ones who come bearing Malt Kisses! ;)
