Book Mews & Worldwide Giveaway: The Trainable Cat part 2

Hi everyone,

Today we are back for another round of giveaways for the very special book by John Bradshaw & Sarah Ellis called The Trainable Cat.

dsc02427

About the Book:

From the on-screen experts for BBC2’s Cat Watch, and based on their groundbreaking research – this is the ultimate guide to making your cat a happier, more sociable animal.

The idea of a trained cat is a contradic

tion in terms, isn’t it? Naturally solitary, wary, easily threatened by newcomers, they are attached to place rather than people, and much of their ‘antisocial’ behaviour arises in situations where that attachment is threatened. But, as cat experts Sarah Ellis and John Bradshaw argue, such stress-induced behaviour can be prevented, reduced, even eliminated, by training.

A comprehensive and engaging step-by-step guide, The Trainable Cat will help you to help your cat negotiate the complexities of everyday life: to enjoy living with humans – including new babies and lively toddlers – and other pets; to answer to their name; settle into a new home; and to overcome the anxiety of a visit to the vet. You can train your cat to do what is in its own best interests – even when its instincts tell it otherwise.

‘I doubt you’ll find a more well-informed or scientific book on cats that better shows you how feline thinking works’ The Times

Over-all verdict: This book is amazing and packed full with tips on how to best approach training your cat! Don’t believe us yet that a cat can be trained? Well Sarah posted some tips and videos on our Blog so you can actually check out some of what the book will teach you here.

Fun time with smelly valerian and pawesome catnip

English Post | German Post

Hi everyone,

We hope you are having a great week?

As some of you may know we are currently running a series of monthly giveaways with our German partner 4cats.

One of our recent winners kindly put together a review for us that can be found below. 🙂

Now if you’ve not yet entered why not head over here for your chance to win a box of mixed toys? 😀

Just a quick post to say Thank You Very Much for our 4Cats giveaway win. The kitties were really excited to receive the parcel, and enjoyed helping me unpack the box.

4cats toys

“Hey Onni, look at this box full of things. It smells great!”

155 img201704261743414640

“You’re right Pepper, these things smell great! I think they’re for us kitties. I hope Mum hurries and unpacks the box.”

144 img201704261740550520

“Hey! What are you two looking at?” mews Naja as she saunters down from the cat tree. “Oooh yes, I’m sure these must be for us, you know how much Mum and Dad love us. And Mum said we won a prize recently”

152 img201704261742130101

“I love this smelly Valerian! It smells a bit like Dad’s feet and smelly cheese!” says Pepper, as she’s playing with the Dolphin.

“You’re right Pepper, the Dolphin is fun. This Cat Nip pillow is fun to rub on too. Smells great!” says Naja.

145 img201704261740118581

“This Valerian pillow is keeping me amused” says Taivas. “It’s purrfect for wrestling with!”

143 20170421175016

“I prefer to just lie and gently rub on the Valerian pillow” says Sweepy

137 20170421144036

“I like to have a good roll and rub on it” says Flash

141 20170421134247

“Hmm, none of us are quite sure what to do with this one, but I just like to rub my head on it” says Pepper

139 20170421134113

Everybody loves this Dolphin. Here are Onni and Taivas with it.

As you can see, our cats are extremely impressed with their 4Cats toys. I’ve only given them these four shown so far, saving the others for another time.

You can smell the quality of the Valerian and CatNip in these toys yourself – our cats are fussy about cat nip, and won’t play with inferior nip. So judging by their response to these toys, they’re obviously high quality.

Our kitties give 4Cats toys a 5 star recommendation, and I would buy them in the future.

Sadly Cookie was outside whilst gathering photos, but she has given her approval to these toys too.

Easter Cat Art Print and Cards (Teeth and Claws by Nicola L Robinson) Giveaway

Spring has officially arrived according to the calendar, promising warmer days and sunshine! I haven’t quite discarded my hat, scarf and gloves just yet but the extra minutes of daylight are certainly welcome, working in my studio with real sunlight is so much nicer than artificial light.

Outside everything is starting to finally wake up and grow new shoots and flowers, and the cats seem to sense something in the air too now the season has changed, with many venturing all four paws outside with greater enthusiasm, showing more energy and like their human friends and family shrugging off the winter blues.

I’m seeing lots more of my local feline friends too when I’m out in my garden, who seem to be waking up even earlier to come and say hello, announcing themselves more vocally than usual before retiring to observe (and probably judge) my gardening skills from the sunny wall at the back of my garden. Spring is here 🙂

With Spring comes Easter, this year Easter Sunday falls on April 16th, and I have been inspired to mark the occasion with something illustrated and cat shaped (and much less calorific than a chocolate egg) my new cat and chick illustration, featuring my original illustration of a long haired grey and white cat, happy with his new yellow chick friend… available as a signed 8 x 10 inch art print and also a cute square greeting card with matching sunshine yellow envelope.

Both available from my Teeth and Claws Shop –

Cat and Chick Print

Cat Easter Card

And in my Etsy shop too – Teeth and Claws on Etsy – Cats

Giveaway!

I’ve teamed up with Katzenworld again, who have been kind enough to do a giveaway with me, I have one signed cat print and matching card for one lucky winner and also three cat Easter cards to giveaway to three runners up, so to be in with a chance to win simply do one or more of the following-

Share this post through the giveaway tool, visit my Teeth and Claws shop to see the rest of my cats, visit my Facebook page, or leave a comment on this blog post!

To gain entries don’t forget to click here.

Meow! Happy Easter folks 🙂
