Austin Who?


Welcome to Austin Towers!

What? No! That's me! I AM Austin Towers, International Cat of Literary Intrigue - The Staff has added the subtitle "The Cat who Nagged Me" for some unknown reason?! 

Anyways, because of my ongoing and relentless search for those word definitions that've hitherto escaped the warm embrace of the lexicographers at the Oxford English Dictionary, I have moved into these new premises which are nearer the kibble cupboard and have more facilities. 


The Staff and I had an argument discussion about the direction of the operation and I won so I went ahead and engaged the inimitable Katie and her design team (aka Glogirly) to .. errr ...... design! And so they did! Don't you love what they've done to brighten the place up! Thank you both xx :)

So let's take a quick tour. Tickets are £7.50 ... nah, just kidding! ;) But first pull up a comfy chair, break out the popcorn and watch the film:

You can watch the video on YouTube here

Ok, so moving on! If you take a quick look up to the top of the side bar on the right, you will see the little flower buttons. Each one is a petal portal to another room where you will find all kinds of delights! Some of them are still a work in progress, so be patient! Just hold your nose and jump through!  In particular I will highlight the facebook portal petal and would beg ask that as many of you as possible will "like" my new page!

There is food and drink around here somewhere and there will be dancing later, but let's get on to the main event. THE PRIZES!

To celebrate our new home everyone who leaves a comment will be entered into a draw (unless they indicate otherwise) and the first two names picked by Random.org will receive a prize: 

1) goods to the value of £30 ($45) from the wonderful Mollie and Alfie's shop
2) a set of the latest Amazecats playing cards featuring some of our greatest fiends friends from the cat blogosphere.

This is open to anyone worldwide who wants to enter and you have until Saturday 27th July midday (UK time).  Please leave an email address or blog link if we don't already have it so we can contact you.  The winners will be announced shortly after.  Finally, we will end with a good old favourite in a new frock .


conflagration - an international gathering of flags


PS Many concats to the royal couple on the safe delivery of their son. 
King Austin I has a nice ring to it. Just meowing!

  17. What a way to shake things up. We think we will need to use Katie's word to describe your new design, groovy. Hope those flags don't catch on fire. Now that would be a true conflagration.

    ReplyDelete
  56. OMC, your new look is just Fabulous!! And I am so glad to read this because the other day I was looking at Glogirly's page, and it has your blog title under her "list of blogs." I was so confused, wondering if somehow you and her were the same person (how could that be? IDK but I still wondered) Not wanting to appear stupid, I didn't ask anyone. mol - so now I know what that is all about!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Oh my CAT! Austin, you're looking sooo GROOOOOOOOVY bay-bee!

    That look is FAAAAHHHHHBulous on you!!

    ReplyDelete
  58. LOVE the new design! It says British, fun and groovy yet smart (hence the bifocals) but not too serious. Your fans..

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh, we were wondering what they named the royal baby. Austin is just purrfect - what a smart choice they made!! xoxo from the Zee and Zoey gang
