BOOK LAUNCH PARTY CLAWS CONFESSIONS OF A CAT GROOMER

After two years of working on my debut book the day finally arrived. The launch party on 7th September 2017.

I decided to hold the launch at my favourite charity and animal welfare rescue organisation Mayhew.

They were amazing and gave over their gardens for my 40 guests which included family, friends, clients and my publisher John Blake and Agent Robert Smith.

I wanted the event to be cruelty free so hired an amazing vegan caterers Rupert’s Street. They were awesome and everyone came back for seconds and thirds!!

My friends presented me with a surprise when I arrived. They had made me an amazing vegan cake!!! No, they are not professional bakers. It tasted out of this world.

The evening went like a dream with everyone excited to be sharing my joy. It was great to celebrate with friends and also to meet some new people like Marc-Andre (below) who runs the fantastic cat blog Katzenworld. Lucky kitties!!!

After food and speeches and some book signings everyone had a tour of Mayhew which really was the highlight of the night if I’m honest. We had to check bags for kittens afterwards! The tour included the cat and kitten sections plus the hospital.

The night ended on a high. With fantastic food, a lovely venue, the amazing support from Mayhew and surrounded by friends, family and clients.

On the night my guests gave a donation to Mayhew and we raised £350 for them! Mayhew were thrilled. My night ended on a high. With fantastic food, a lovely venue, the amazing support from Mayhew and surrounded by friends, family and clients.

I couldn’t have asked for a better book launch.  It was perfect.
