My Namesake has Gone Over Rainbow Bridge

Sneaky The Library Cat's Blog

For those who may not have heard the sad news, my author’s 17-year-old cat, Oliver, crossed over to Rainbow Bridge on Saturday, November 4th, after a bout with kidney failure that weakened his legs but couldn’t kill his spirit. Debbie named me after him and, although I’m a character cat, I was proud of my real-life counterpart. Oliver also appeared in Debbie’s articles as well as being her inspiration for me. She wrote a beautiful memorial post on her blog that you can read here: 

Debbie is also offering a free e-copy of her short story, The Path to Rainbow Bridge, until Friday, November 10, in memory of Oliver and to comfort others who have also lost their own precious pets. Although I am not in this story, many of Debbie’s cats who she has loved and lost throughout the years are featured.

As an additional memorial…

Excerpt:

A kiss? Heat poured off him, but it was no longer anger riding him. She forced down the lump in her throat, holding his intense gaze as her thoughts raced. She had never been kissed by a man. Or kissed a man, but it was not a high price to pay to dismiss the entire incident.

Refusing would certainly result in a steeper demand, and the last thing she wanted to do was to cause any problems for her ri…

ONLY YOU

TheBoneGarden

Omnibus in foro S.P.D.

The “Bone Mother” is returning. Slowly. Letting the bindings unwrap themselves. Enjoy.

ONLY YOU 09/17/2017

You.

That’s right.

You.

Not me.

Not us.

There was never us.

You said loved me,

All my wild evil,

My imperfections,

I was the perfect flower,

In your imperfect world,

Is that what you tell all the flowers?

That are not good enough,

It never is,

Nor was it ever was,

The mask has been lifted,

I see with perfect clarity,

But do you see?

What you have done to me?

Confirmed what was already known,

So thanks to you,

And your ilk,

These walls will be built stronger,

Impenetrable,

My heart encased in the strongest glass,

So my thanks,

My gratitude you have,

But you shall pay a cost,

Nothing is ever free,

You pay a high cost,

Your cost was forever  losing me.

Sneaky The Library Cat's Blog

Meow, there. It’s Sneaky with some films for your favorite day. Even though it’s not my birthday or the birthday of either of my authors’ cats, I’m sure some of you might enjoy these films and probably already have celebrated your own cat’s birthday or the day you adopted him or her. If so, feel free to comment on what you’ve done.

Before I show the films, I want to also share my recent post on my author’s blog that gives some great news about our books. Check it out: http://wp.me/p6m4z7-1ml

Sneaky’s Interview of Spam, Purranormal Cat Detective

Sneaky The Library Cat's Blog

Have I got a treat for you, and it’s better than catnip. I have a purranormal cat detective here to cat chat with me today.

What is your name and your author’s name?

My name is Spam, because my feral father’s hobby is making copies of himself with all of the unaltered lady cats in town. There are long haired ginger cats and kittens everywhere you look.

My two-legged author’s name is Elizabeth Ann Scarborough but she let her cat cultural consultant, K.B. Dundee (aka Kittibits) take top billing on my first book.

What book(s) have you appeared in and what genre are they?

 Spam’s the name, purranormal detective is my game (so a cross between mystery and woo-woo). Or as my raccoon assistant, Renfrew likes to say, “We use our snoopiness to solve spookiness.” My books are:

  1. Spam Vs the Vampire (my “origin story”)
  2. Father Christmas, or Spam the…
