Hi there and a very warm welcome to this first issue of The Scratching Post – your mid-month ‘in between Mewsletter’ which will have the latest Book Quiz and Caption Competitions, plus the winners from the last competitions, and a round up of the best in the links.   

What do you think of the header? My friend, Anthony Smith, who has a ‘Learn to speak cat’ cartoon in the Metro newspaper every day, designed it for me. I think it’s great and as you can see, Casey has joined Sam and Ollie on the logo. See more of Anthony’s work here at www.learntospeakcat.com

BOOK QUIZ:

 Jared Kline from Belgium was first to get all three book titles/authors correct – well done, Jared.

 The Book Quiz for this month can be found on this link:

 CAPTION COMPETITION:

Last month’s caption competition showed Ollie standing on the tower looking out of the window. Andrew Lane from Southampton, UK, submitted the winning entry:

"Oh where is he?  He said seven-thirty, and the mouse-aka will be ruined if he doesn't get here soon!"

You can see all the entries here on this link:
