I was just checking an email and there was one from PBS about a transaction for a WL book being cancelled. I didn't even notice that I had one posted to me so I looked at the reason in the body of the email.  It said "I have cats" I find this odd because I don't have an RC of anykind. 

I don't normally PM over stuff like this. But I sent one just incase she meant to decline someone else's RC and accidentally cancelled my transaction by mistake.  Although I suppose when she figures it out and reposts the book it'll go to me anyway if somene else doesn't post it in the meantime.

Maybe the cats ate half the book and she forgot to mention that part? LOL Hope you get it figured out. :)

Cats are mysterious creatures, but it does sound like the order first went to some one with an RC for cats, and she didnt realize yours was a new order.

Was it a book about cats? Do you have cats? Would you like a cat?

It was a historical romance.  I don't have a cat.I like cats. I just happen to have dogs and guinea pigs.

I got a PM this morning saying she did cancel mine by mistake.  So I told her she can repost the book as it's on autorequest and I don't have a pet condition.

Dogs and guinea pigs and historical romances. Glad she figured it out and you will get your book!

The dark brown guinea pig looks just like my Toffee. 

Well it turned out I was right and she cancelled the wrong one.  But someone else posted it before she reposted and now it's coming from another member and her copy going to someone else. 

It's all good.

Awww, thank you! We lost our elderly cat last month, and have been catless since then, and it's just not right in the world.  That helps :)
