Book:whiskerslist: the kitty classifieds by Angie Bailey of Catladyland fame:Not your Mama's Classified Ads! ENTER TO WIN!

Yo kitties it's Cody and ONE OF OUR CLOSELY GUARDED SECRETS IS OUT!  I don't know about you, but for the past 4 years I have worked HARD at not letting my Mom know what I do on the computer while she is out, but kitties, YOU and I HAVE BEEN BUSTED! We have been caught red-pawed!

Angie Bailey, the multi-award winning creator of the Catladyland blog has LET OUR DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS (and in MANY cases in this LAUGH OUT LOUD BELLY BUSTING BOOK, whiskerslist: the kitty classifieds,  they ARE DIRTY, but in a purrfectly acceptable and hilarious way), OUT OF THE BAG!

I nearly ran into the closet and hid when Mom told me that she took this book on a recent trip! Mom said it was the PURRFECT way to pass boring airplane time, and  that in the 21 and a half years that she worked  in the Classified Ad Dept of a major newspaper, she had never run across ads  as purrfectly hysterical as these! Why she finds these funny, I have no clue. To kitties this is SERIOUS STUFF! This is OUR LIFE, OUR THOUGHTS, whiskerslist: the kitty classifieds is the craigslist for CATS! Minus the creepy stuff, well, maybe there IS a LITTLE of the CREEPY STUFF, but it is FUN CREEPY STUFF!

Mom said that some of her purrticular favorites were:

Female in heat looking for quick hookup
Can you hear me now? I'm rolling around and rubbing myself on the sofa thinking of you. Absolutely no strings attached. You won't be disapppointed. Meeeooow!

Polite Jewish South Philly boy looking for likeminded travel partners
Brand new kosher deli open in Fishtown. Maury AKA "Bootsy" says there's some nice pastrami. Anybody wanna travel with me to check out the dumpster? Looking for easy going travel partners. No kvetching.

The nakeder the better...
I will be in town next Tuesday and am looking for a female Sphynx to meet up for an evening of intense bathing and uninhibited fun. Must be COMPLETELY smooth. Email me with pic.....

And of course, I am featured in whiskerslist as well!

Along with the Classified Ads that were written by cats like YOU and ME,  Author, Angie Bailey included many of our discussion forums such as:

Baskets vs. boxes

I like the sound of the hair dryer: Is that weird?

 which we have been known to purrticipate in online at  I must say Angie left NO piece of kibble unturned in the writing of this book. She even included our PURRSONAL ID numbers and the DATES that our ads were placed and the DATES we pussyfooted around the forums!!! Is NOTHING SACRED!!!???

whiskerslist: the kitty classifieds is simply purrfect from the clever and intriguing cover (that makes you WANT to read what is inside!)  to the  "160 uproarious posts." It will have you nodding your head in recognition, covering your face with your paws in shame at secrets that have been revealed, and will it will have you laughing MILK OUT OF YOUR NOSE as your paws purruse the 208 pages.

"Cat lovers and laugh lovers alike
 will be delighted by this highly amusing parody!!!"

In full disclosure, I was not compensated with kibble, cat treats, or green papers for this review. I was sent a complimentary copy of whiskerslist: the kitty classifieds in exchange for my honest opinion.


  1. ooooh, we'd like to enter, our classified would read:

    "Looking for new can opener. Thumbs required."

  2. Oh no, our secrets are out? That is scary.

    "Job Opening: Mouser to catch the real mice that come in our house. We only like the purple, fuzzy ones."

  3. Have a marvellous Monday Caren and Cody and as always ignore us for the giveaway..
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Oh NOSE!! the truths out there kittehs!!
    'Pluxurious ginger girl seeks mouse murdulator ..i like to watches coz i hasn't got the stomachs for doin it meselfz ' Dinnermintz

  5. Gosh that really sounds like a swell book even if it DOES give away all our secrets!! If I placed a classified ad it would go something like this: "Older, settled, somewhat crotchety boy cat, seeks cuddly, snuggly, calm, older girl kitty who wants to spend her golden years napping in sun puddles together!!".........

    Kitty Hugs and Happy Monday Cody!

  6. We already have the book (of course), but I just want to say how much we also enjoyed it! Both me AND my human! Well, except for that embarrassing ad Binga has in it… ;-)

  7. Well if I was placing an ad I would be looking for staff that would keep the food bowl full at all times and stop taking my bowl away just because Socks comes in the house. It is very annoying when I want a nibble and my dry food has vanished. ~Scylla

    Wanted some human that will give my real cat food and not y/d food. I have also discovered a liking for human foods so my personal chef would be nice too. ~Socks

  8. LOL!! Those kitty classifieds are tempting Gumtree and Charlie! LOL!! Excellent stuff! Take care

  9. I am not entering but just wanted to stop by to tell you how much I liked your review!

  10. That looks like a fun book. We don't have a clever ad right now. Take care.

  11. ahh that sounds like such a fun giveaway! we would love to participate! our add would be about brucy something like "naughty, calmless kitten who spends times either destroying carpets, sofas or eating cables is looking for a cat-sitter, who is very experienced in cat-cuddles, brushing and preparing chicken"

  12. Good luck to those who enter!

    We're just stopping in to say hi and say thanks for swinging by the Musings blog. Things are a bit crazy at our end, too but for different reasons. LOL.

  13. Hi Cody and Caren...

    Thanks for coming over yesterday and signing up to follow us in our new place. We are so glad you came and YES we will have more computer time now...... We will be by to see you more often.

    This book looks really cute..... Love the review of it.

    hugs, Bugsy, Knuckles, and HH

  14. Hey Caren and Cody!

    Thanks for all the great info!


  15. Lucy's ad : Bathroom companion at your disposal - ladies, I know how difficult it is to take care of business alone and how every girl needs a pal around during those intimate moments. I'll insure you never have to do it alone...

  16. Not entering, but wanted to say your review is excellent. We already have the book and can concur with how pawsome it is.

  17. Love book reviews :-)

  18. Congratulations!

    Not entering.

    Ragdoll Mommy~

  19. I would advertise my decorating business. I do great things with toilet paper!


  20. I would like to enter! My ad:
    "Handsome kitten seeks a cat companion. So far living alone, would like to share his mansion and staff with a playful, humorous and sociable partner. Likes to climb on high places, needs assistance in catching the fish in the aquarium. Please send the replies in a discrete manner, the staff will be informed only later on if a possible addition to their supervisors is found. P.S. has been neutered."

  21. We would love to read that book!
    Our ad would be something like : looking for cat whisperer to help contact Abby for the super secret place she hid our catnip toys.

  22. Please don't enter us ( we're featured in it and have done a giveaway) but just wanted to say how AWESOME the book is and Angie is a hoot!

  23. Sounds like a great book. My ad would be:
    Trouble with a mouse in the house?
    Then call me,
    For a small fee,
    No job too small,
    I get 'em all.

  24. LOVE it!! Thanks for such a wonderful review, Cody!! xoxo

  25. That sure sounds like a HOOT!! All I can say is that it takes one to know one. Angie IS a cat :-)

  26. Hysterical! Moosey's ad would probably be about him being a master plumber in search of an assistant with thumbs (to turn the faucet on at will)!

  27. Ooooh! Naughty!!! ;) My ad would say "New staff required. Old staff retired!"

  28. Sounds like a great book! Our ad would be:
    Little Brother for Sale - two cans of wet food OBO
    Male Yellow Tabby, not the brightest bulb on the strand, but good for entertainment.
    Ask for Daffodil or Chloe (do not speak to the humans)

  29. Great blog! Thanks for inviting me over, glad I came!

    1. Awww thank you!!!! Glad you did too! I am now subscribed to yours since I have a dog as well :)

  30. hmmm I think my male cat would say "I'm looking for a female who doesn't beat me up" hahah the females in this house pick on him :) But that's probably just because he is so handsome!
    p.s. sorry I've been MIA a bit, vacation was fun but took a lot out of me!!! Playing catch up on stuff

  31. The cat that came before me actually has an ad on the web site. My ad would prolly say "Slacker human for sale. No skills. Will remember to feed you and clean your litter box if you nag enough. Name you price. You know where I am at.

  32. What a stuff of un-ambiguity and preserveness of precious familiarity regarding unexpected emotions.
