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.

Our cats always slept under the bed. Not very animated.

Chrys Fey said...

I have cats, and always have, so I have to check out this competition. Thank you for sharing, Patsy! :)

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.

Thank you for the link. I'm very tempted to have a go. xx

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

Patsy said...

You might win it by a whisker, Linda.

Patsy said...

I'll try and find you some international ones, Alyson.

Teresa Ashby said...

Thanks for the link, Patsy x

Patsy said...

My dad took the picture, Linda. I think the cat is Australian.

Patsy said...

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

Patsy said...

Good luck with it, Chrys.

Patsy said...

Go for it, Inion!

Patsy said...

Don't even paws to think about it, Suzanne - get writing.

Patsy said...

You have a good stock of material to work from then, Lizy.

Patsy said...

You're welcome, Teresa.

Dream it, then do it said...

I might have a go if I'm feline lucky.

Julia Hones said...

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.

Leandra Wallace said...

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.

Patsy said...

Just make sure your punctuation is purrfect, Keith.

Patsy said...

You have no excuse then, Julia!

Patsy said...

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

Nas said...

I would love to read cat stories. Thanks for the links, Patsy!

Patsy said...

I'd like to write some! Better get on with it, hadn't I?

JJ said...

Interesting and tempting. I have a few.

Patsy said...

Cats or stories, JJ?
