You Don't Have to be #SingleWithCat to Enjoy This "Feel-Good" Romantic Comedy by author Rosa Silva

"Single with Cat is a feel-good romantic comedy perfect for readers who love cats, books and happy endings!!"

While I am NOT "single with cat" for many, many, MANY years I was, with my first cat, Bobo, hence the topic intrigued me. A man not liking my cat was a deal-breaker, a man who DID like my cat definitely required a second, or third look!

I am super familiar with Rosa's writing. I follow her blog and I have read/reviewed her other short, humorous cat books, as well as having thoroughly enjoyed a novella she had featured on her blog.

Rosa has a colorful, descriptive writing style. Her female lead characters are interesting and every detail about them from their personalities, their outfits, makeup, nails and shoes are described in depth. Many are women I would want to be friends with! (Some, not-so-much!)

"Single With Cat" is a super quick read at 200 pages. I finished it in about three hours, enjoying every moment, (I had a number of LOL moments!!) I found myself reading faster and faster, eagerly turning the pages, full of excitement, anxiously waiting to see what was going to happen next!!

I'm confident you, my cat loving readers, will enjoy it too! Now, enough of my babbling and read further to learn more about this FUN and INTERESTING book!

From Rosa Silva's website

Olivia is back in her hometown to reopen the bookstore her grandmother left her. She has a whole plan mapped out for the Happy Endings Bookstore. Just one problem – she finds out the bank is ready to foreclose on the bookstore’s mortgage.

Gabriel, the bank manager, is as drop dead gorgeous as he is grouchy. Olivia hates the guy, but her cat Chili seems to love him. Now Olivia has three months to save the bookstore and rub it in Gabriel’s face.

Olivia tries everything to save the bookstore, but with a quest to find out the identity of an anonymous romance writer, her mother wanting to find her a husband, and her grandmother’s grouchy neighbor making her life hell, Olivia has a lot on her plate.

The tension between Olivia and Gabriel escalates as the deadline to save the bookstore approaches, but as the two slowly begin to let their guard down, they might learn that sometimes stepping outside one’s comfort zone can lead to the greatest reward.

Here's the link to the book on Amazon:


"I write contemporary romance (with a bit of humor) and pretty much whatever I feel like writing. I like to write about people who are starting over either by choice or because life has forced them to do so. I believe in the power of new beginnings!"

The Pussums Cat Company Celebrates 40th Anniversary with World’s Largest Catnip Kicker Toy

Maine-based cat products company, The Pussums Cat Company, is celebrating its 40th anniversary in “fur-tastic” fashion by creating the unofficial world’s largest catnip kicker.

 The paw-dropping catnip toy stands at an impressive 72 inches tall with a 50-inch circumference and holds 35 pounds of “Dr. Pussums Fancy Feline Elixir Pure Catnip” inside. The brand’s standard catnip kickers (small pillow-like toys perfect for kitties to kick) range from two inches up to eleven inches making the special anniversary celebratory kicker 550 percent larger, the biggest one ever produced by the brand.


The world’s largest catnip kicker has already been cat-tested, feline-approved by the in-house hospice foster cats that call The Pussums Cat Company retail location in Turner, Maine home, as well as by furry friends at nearby PALS No-Kill Cat Shelter in Winthrop, Maine.


“We were trying to think of fun ways to celebrate our forty years of bringing top quality catnip toys to cat lovers and thought there was no better way than to go big or go home...literally,” said Susan Shaw, owner of The Pussums Cat Company.


The Pussums Cat Company will be bringing the oversized catnip kicker to events around New England where fans can take photos with the kicker and bring home free Dr. Pussums samples, while supplies last. Visit to find a list of events where the catnip kicker will be on display and check back often as the list is being updated as events are added.

When not on the road you will find the world’s largest catnip kicker on display at the brand’s retail location located at 293 Auburn Road in Turner, Maine. The store is open Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Roary was a lucky recipient of three of their toys!!!! I was beyond impressed with the quality, and the pungent smell of catnip that was evident the second I opened the package!



The Pussums Cat Company is a small family-owned Maine business that provides superior quality catnip and catnip toys, cat teasers and toys, and cat lover gifts. To celebrate the 40th anniversary the brand is offering monthly 40% off promotions on select items announced via e-newsletter to subscribers and social media followers. The brand is also offering an exclusive offer of 10% off items sitewide (with the exception of subscriptions and gift cards) by using code 207PURR. 

Founded in 1982, The Pussums Cat Company is a Maine-based, woman-owned company that provides premium catnip toys and gifts. The high standards of quality, along with our unique business model, has allowed us to become Maine’s premier source for catnip toys and teasers. Dr. Pussums Pure Catnip products are available directly from the Turner, Maine retail location (which is home to several rescue cats) as well as or via boutique pet and gift shops and veterinary offices in 31 states. For more information, visit
