The Cat Who ... Cookbook:

Dying for Chocolate: The Cat Who ... Cookbook: Chocolate Whoppers: Today I chose another Chocolate Recipe from my "Tie-in" Cookbook collection . This one is from The Cat Who ... Cookbook: Delicious Meals ...

I was so tickled to see one of my favorite blogs had a bit about a favorite author of mine....and chocolate to boot.

Hit Mr. Linky above to check it out.

Anyone who knows me in RL knows that I love my cats, my books and amongst other things chocolaty goodness in all forms.

I was deeply saddened to learn of the death of Lillian Jackson Braun earlier this year. I had a suspicion when her publishing house withdrew her latest book from release, but it was handled with dignity just as it should have been. Miss Polly would have been proud.

Books have gotten me through some of my darkest days, they are the friends who do not judge. I grew up in a house that read almost anything and I hate to admit this but I simply cannot relate to someone who says they do not read or enjoy books. I was even lucky enough to find and marry a man who not only appreciates books as much as I do but who has also introduced me to new authors that we now collect.

Miss Braun wrote what is termed " Coseys ". They are sweet little non graphic ( nothing wrong with graphic or urban either , trust me) that usually have pet companions.

Miss Braun had two Siamese characters , Koko and Yum Yum , lovingly cared for by Mr. James Qwilleran. I am going to he to check the spelling on that last name, it seems odd at the moment.

While the mysteries were good, what came through loud and clear was Miss Brauns love and appreciation for all things feline.

Rest in peace , Miss Braun.

Munchkin, Loki, Xena, Boschka, Andy and Gracie Marie send purrs and headbutts to Koko, Yum Yum , Brutus and everyone at the Rainbow Bridge. We know that you are there to care and protect all of them.

Blessed Be.

Aunty Pol

Oh, I loved Mrs.Braun's books - my husband would bring them home from the library for me. That is truly sad.

Our whole family reads - and we read anything. I always like when the kids say "Oh the book was so much better" [than the movie] because they like what they have conjured up in their mind better than what the producers put on the screen.

RIP Mrs. Braun.
