Guy's Giveaway

Guy has been reminding me that I have been saying I'm going to do a giveaway for awhile and that I had better get with it. So in honor of Guy's First Birthday, here is the first item I am going to give to one of my great blog readers.  The name of the book is "Smudge", both the story and pictures are by Clare Turlay Newberry.  It's a darling book about a mamma cat and her kittens.

Guy relaxing after his book review of "Smudge".

As you see in the pictures, the book has been thoroughly examined by Guy and it meets with his approval! This is a gently used book and is a newer edition (1998). It is a large book, approximately 12 x 12 inches. 

If you would like to win this, simply leave a comment saying you want the book.  I will pick a name at random from the entries and announce the winner back here in about a week. The only requirement is that you are a follower of my blog, so whether you live in the UK, Canada or anywhere else, please enter! After the winner is picked, I will need your mailing information and I will send the book on it's way.

The rest of the pictures are of Guy being himself, a cute little rascal!

Look at the picture below....
Do you see the paw on the right side of the photo? I was trying to clean off my desk of assorted clutter, (including this vintage pom-pom cat), when suddenly......

 There was an attack in progress!!!!!!

 Someone really wanted to get that thing!

 After closer examination, Guy decided it wasn't that much fun after all.

He decided to get onto the window ledge where he could look outside.

Guy, like many of us are still wondering when spring will actually arrive.

Guy Noir is One Year Old Today!
