Getting catty

If you have a cat, or used to, or know someone who has then you might like to try this competition to write a true cat related story. Thanks to writing friend and cat lover Charlie Britten for telling me about this one.

The prizes are £50 Amazon vouchers and publication in Your Cat magazine.

There were always cats on the farm when I was growing up and some were real characters. There must be a suitable story somewhere in my memory.

    1. Hard to get an exciting story from that, Alex - but I'm sure you can do it.

  6. My cat, Peaches, is c-a-razy. Mathair and I could muster up some stories about him that would seem downright off the wall. LOL.

  8. I might even have a go myself - I've had Kika for 14 years and she's caused a few laughs in her time!

  10. Cats and stories... yes, there may be a suitable story in your memory then, Patsy.
    We also had cats when I grew up. They all had different personalities.

  11. That kitty looks so much like the one I had as a teenager. Poor thing only had three legs! But it still got around super fast.

    1. Your three legged cat must have a story or two attached to it, Leandra.
