Is your cat a Simon's Cat? #bookreviews

You know those great Simon's Cat animated videos we love watching on Facebook & YouTube?
The ones featuring -- well, Simon's cat?

Check it out: who knew even famous 'toons have to suffer the indignity of the PTU?!*

the new Simon's Cat, Off to the Vet publishes Thiusday 10/29
*PTU = Prisoner Transport Unit (aka cat carrier, in Kittenese)
Not that any of us can identify with that cover.... Nope, not at all.

So what's your best "Simon's Cat" antic?

Here are our submissions.

Tell us about yours. Better yet, send us a pic of your favorite kitty caught red-pawed and we'll compile the photos into a Celebrity Lookalike Post! [send to tonkstail (at) gmail (dot) com]

And if you're looking for a gift for a cat loving friend, check out Simon's Cat: Off to the Vet"  available at bookstores and online this Thursday, 10/29.

Filled with classic Simon's Cat humor, it might be just what the doctor ordered. ( ← don't shoot us for the bad pun! Our mom totally typed that.)
We enjoyed reading our advance copy and thank Akashic Books for sending us the book to review. We were not compensated in any way other than a copy of the book. All opinions are our own.


We're totally entering both of these pics in the Sunday Selfies blog hop, hosted by the kitties over at The Cat on my Head.

Head on over and see all the other great entries!


  1. None of us here are a "Simon's Cat". Well, OK, we argued among ourselfs that Iza might be in some general terms, but she is too lovin to TBT so she isnt.

  2. THOSE FANGS JUST CRACK MOM UP! And I would love to see Simon's new book and boy, mom said Admiral was great with that spread eagle pose!

  3. I'm sure none of you girls & guy are anywhere near as bad as Simon's cat....or maybe just a bit?

  4. That bottom photo looks as if you are flossing! MOL!

  5. Fan of Fangs! As you can see from our Sunday selfie today, we too are "fans of pointed fangs,!" having been asked to show ours! The more toothy smiles the merrier. Thanx for letting us see yers!!!

  6. Wow what wonderful fangs you have!

  7. We totally loved this book. Mom was reading it in the doctor's (hers not ours) waiting room and laughing out loud. The other patients probably thought she should have been in the psychiatrist's office and not the orthopedist's. MOL! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  8. Happy Sunday #selfies!!

  14. What a pawsome book! We love Simon's Cat. We'll check to see if there's any photographic evidence of us doing something we're not supposed to do...though we normally try to destroy any evidence. ;)

  15. We love Simon's Cat! We can hardly wait to read this book!

  16. Can't wait to get this for Mommie, she has all the others. Hmmmm will have to look through all the photos to see if Mom caught us doing anything out of the norm :) Love your photos today!

  17. I love Simon's cat, my favorite is the original where he tries to wake Simon up.

  18. Simon is evfur so realistic in his antics, we hear meowmy giggle out loud each time she sees one of those videos.

  19. We sure enjoy Simon's Cat and Granny says I am kind of look-a-like sometimes, especially when I expert myself to the outmost when I want to go outside, but today we enjoyed your stretchable Selfie with the striking fangs, cutie pies :D Pawkisses :) <3
