It’s not often that we here at Time Out are star struck. But, this Sunday Smokey the world’s most famous cat-that-purrs-louder-than-normal is doing a book signing at the Oxford Street Waterstone’s (12-3pm). Not the cat – its owner, or author, whatever… the cat will be there. Smokey’s media credentials are extensive and her celebrity is predicted only to grow following the publication of her journey from re-homed mog to international superstar. Everyone loves a rags to riches story and the book has celebrity endorsement from Downing Street’s very own pussy ‘Larry’. With the book described as suitable from 8-adult, it has something for everyone – if everyone has (with the help of the internet) gone absolutely cat crazy.
All in a good cause, the owner will be collecting donations for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home during the ‘pawtograph’ signing.
