Have you heard of the New York Times bestseller called HOW TO ARGUE WITH A CAT: A Human’s Guide to the Art of Persuasion? It’s been causing quite a stir in the cat world! >^..^<
We recently ran a contest in the U.S. for a chance to WIN one of five copies of this book. Many of our readers from the UK emailed us expressing disappointment that they couldn’t enter due to contest restrictions.
We listened. Problem solved. Contest details follow. We even created a cute video (below).
Cats are skilled manipulators who can talk you into just about anything without a single word (or maybe a meow or two). They can get you to drop whatever you’re doing and play with them. They can make you serve their dinner way ahead of schedule. They can get you to sit down right this instant and provide a lap. On the other hand, try getting a cat to do what you want…
While it’s hard, persuading a cat is possible. And after that, persuading humans becomes a breeze, and that’s what you will learn in this book.
We are delighted to offer 5 copies of HOW TO ARGUE WITH A CAT for five lucky UK based Purrington Post readers to WIN!

This contest was co-sponsored with our friends from Pause Cat Café in Bournemouth. The 5 winners were chosen by the Pause team from all the correctly submitted entries and contacted by email.
