Preserve Memories of Your Cat or Kitten With A "Purr" Baby's Mementos Book By Elizabeth Parker--Enter to Win!

A few months ago I was chatting on Facebook with my Author friend, Elizabeth Parker, (I have had the pleasure of  reviewing a number of her books), when she asked me to please send her my address again, because she had a special surprise to send to me.

I LOVE SURPRISES!! When the mail arrived I was delighted to discover that Elizabeth had sent me one of her latest creations, The  "Purr" Baby's Mementos Book.

The "Purr" Baby's Mementos Book is a "one-of-a-kind, fill-in-the-blank memento book for your cat." (There is also one for dogs that will be featured on Dakota's blog on Friday, October 10th, it is called the "Fur" Baby's Keepsake Book).

Have you recently brought home a new adult cat or kitten or know someone who did?
Want to record memories of a cat(s) who has been a member of your family for years? The "Purr" Baby's Mementos Book is the purrfect place to keep them!

The "Purr" Baby's Mementos Book is full color, illustrated and is 6x9 inches, (purrfect to stash in your purse, tablet or laptop case to record memories as you experience them! It is a purrfectly transportable size!)

I don't know about you, but for YEARS whenever a friend would bring a new HUMAN baby home, one of my favorite gifts to give the new arrival was a Baby Book. I discovered through the years, that that was one item that was not only cherished and appreciated, but the parents had it for years, and it was an item that most people would never think of.

The "Purr" Baby's Mementos Book is the "feline version" of human baby books!

One of the first things I loved about this book happens to be located on the first page. There is a page where you record "When You Became Our Baby" "When You Became Our Boss," then it goes on to say: "This Book Belongs to the STAFF of:"  and you write your cat's name on that line.

There is plenty of room for photographs and threaded between is a spot for you to paste an envelope with a piece of your cat's fur.

A couple of my favorite pages are listed below: NOTE:I haven't had a chance to insert Cody's photo yet.

There is a place to write down your cat's birthday (if known), a copy of an announcement card, places to record the reactions of friends and family upon meeting the new addition, (or current family member!)  and so much more!

There are pages to record how your cat communicates, when they uttered their FIRST HISS and when they experienced their FIRST KISS (how cute is THAT!?)  You can record their likes, dislikes, reactions to their fur siblings, human siblings, the first words they understood, and so much more!

Most of you are probably like me and remember EXACTLY what the vet said about your new cat or kitten the day you brought him/her in for their first exam.  Record it for posterity!

You will also find pages where you can record your Veterinarian's name, address and phone number. There is a spot where you can notate first vaccinations, the date of the vaccinations, any illnesses as well as the date the cat or kitten was spayed or neutered.

Why should human children have all of the fun? Cat and Kitten Showers (as well as puppy showers) are becoming increasingly more popular, and I say it's about time!!

Ready for this?
The book also comes in either a pink cover (for a girl kitty), or a blue cover (for a boy kitty!) What a clever and fun idea!

  This would make the perfect gift for anyone who has brought home a new cat or kitten recently, or years ago. It would make a catabulous stocking stuffer, Secret Santa gift, Chanukah Gift, Gotcha Day Gift or ANYTIME gift!

 The paperback is approx $15 on Amazon and is also available on Kindle and Nook or at,  You can also find Elizabeth on Facebook and Twitter.

From Elizabeth Parker:This book is simply a means to record all memories of your pet, whether it is a baby, adult, senior or, has made their journey toward the rainbow bridge.  Another great feature is that it's perfect for rescued animals as well!

  8. My human wishes she had had something like this when she had Harlot. With the blog, Sparkle's life and my life are so well documented, but Harlot only has an occasional mention in the diaries my human kept back in those days.

  9. What a wonderful idea! I would want a blue one for Thunder.

  10. Hi guys! Noticed there are some entries that didn't state what color they want in a comment. That was a mandatory thing to complete. Thanks so much!

  11. Blue. TW doesn’t remember the first thing the vet said about me. The quote she remembers is that I “don’t play well with others” because I hissed and bit them.
    HAH! Did you ever notice that baseball players never wear the number “69”?
