Easton West takes over the blog…and there’s a giveaway

Just one week until the release of Kimberly Pauley’s Cat Girl’s Day Off! In celebration, Cat Girl’s star celebrity blogger Easton West has commandeered the Lee & Low Blog kindly volunteered to share her thoughts on the book, her cat, Ty McKenzie’s underwear, and what it’s like being kidnapped by a crazy, psycopathic—well, let’s not give anything away…

Hello there my little poppets! O, Easton, you ask, whatever are you doing here? This isn’t your home-away-from-home-on-the-web where I go for all the celebrity news I can handle. This is the blog of a publisher. They do serious things here. They don’t gossip. They don’t talk about the color of Ty McKenzie’s underwear (red, dearies, in case you were wondering and no, I’m not going to tell you how I know that!).

All good questions, though I must say you are being very nosy, dear readers. But that’s why you love me! Because I tell ALL.

You see, someone has finally written a book about me! I have no idea why it took this long to happen (who, after all, is more interesting than me?), but happen it has! I haven’t actually read it yet as I’ve been very, very busy, but I am sure it is wonderful. My very own darling Tiddlywinks is on the cover and he looks smashing in pink, as usual!

Your next question, I’m sure, is who in the world is that striking young girl next to Tiddlywinks with the dash of purple in her hair? That, my poppets, is Natalie Ng. And she can talk to cats. More importantly, she can talk to Tiddlywinks!

Did you know my darling’s favorite food is not tuna but langoustine? Yes, my furry little boy has good taste indeed.

But enough for now. More soon! Mama has some reading to do!

Thanks, Easton! I’m sure we’ll be hearing more from you very soon. Meanwhile, we’re giving away a copy of Cat Girl’s Day Off to one lucky reader (US addresses only). To enter, answer the following question in the comments: If you could talk to and understand a cat, what would you ask it?

If we’re lucky, Natalie “Cat Girl” Ng may even jump onto the blog to ask some *actual* cats your questions and share their answers!

    If I could talk to cats I wouldn’t be able to limit it to one question obviously:) I would have tons to say and ask. Cats are just to interesting to have a short convo…lol

    I would ask them what is the most annoying thing their pet parent does?
    Then I would ask them what is the best thing their pet parent does for them?
    Finally, I would ask what is the best part of being a kitty? Worst part?

    If I could ask a cat a question. My cat disappeared last year so I would ask one of the other cats in my neighborhood what happened to him. I miss my cat alot. :(
    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

    If I could talk to and understand a cat, I’d ask it why my cat thinks it is funny to drop a live mouse on my bed in the middle of the night. Or, if I were going for a more general question, I’d ask it what the best thing about living with humans is and what does it merely put up with as a necessary downside. :)

    Oh, I’d ask my cat(s) which flavor cat food is the best. I never know which one they prefer. One cat likes asparagus another likes pasta sauce. They have very different tastes.

    To our young cat: “Would you please come sleep on my desk whenever I write? I think it gives me inspiration.”

    To our old cat: “Hold still so I can pet you. I know you like being pet because you purr. So stay within arms’ reach.”

    OK, that last one wasn’t a question. Maybe I would ask, “Why don’t you stay within arms’ reach when I pet you?” but I wouldn’t expect a coherent answer from a cat beyond yes or no.

    Thank you for the giveaway. :)

    I would ask my cat what I do that bothers her. I mean, I’m sure that I do plenty of things that annoy her. I’d want to know so I could be better. Sappy, but true.

    My cat does talk and if I told you what I’ve asked her and her purfectly fascinating replies, the cat assassin squad would have to kill us both.
