catonmyhead2-200x300The Kitties Blue gave us the Sunshine Blogger award!!   We love answering questions so HERE. WE. GO. !!!

Who is your favorite author?

  • Simon: my favorite author is David Weisner. Since I review picture books I get to see lots of really nice artwork but his is the best. I love the detail he puts into his drawings. His books have no words so you have to follow along visually. Here is a link to my review of some of his books:  Library of Cats
  • Toby: my favorite author is Rick Riordan. He writes really great adventure books. I’m partial to his Percy Jackson series. Here is a link to my review of The Lightening Thief.



2.   Why did you start blogging?

  • Toby: Our blog was first started by Angel LadyBird, a persnickety little Chihuahua mom brought home with her from a trip. But after she went to the Rainbow Bridge this past December, 2015 mom asked me if I wanted to continue the blog and I said “Yes!”


  • The Crew: We like to get a word in to remind Toby he is not the only cat in the house.


3.   Beach or mountains for vacation?

  • Toby: Definitely mountains. I would love to explore the woods!mnt
  • The Crew: Either, as long as Toby doesn’t take over.


4.   What is your favorite indulgence?

  • Everybody: Treats!! Specifically, temptations


5.   If you had an unlimited amount of money, what would you do with it?

  • Toby: I would make sure all the cats in our neighborhood had a nice place to call home.art-logo
