The Cat Who Chose Us and Other Stories

I had an author interview scheduled for today, but the author never got back to me, so I'm sharing the details about the anthology, The Cat Who Chose Us and Other Stories.

This collection was put together by Kyra Lennon. I contributed "The Great Kitty Rescue," a true-story about how I came to own my four cats. My mom, Elaine Kaye, also contributed a mystery titled "Here, Kitty, Kitty." Many other authors from our blogosphere also participated.

Here's a full list of authors:

Annalisa Crawford
Kyra Lennon
M.J. Fifield
Laura Sheridan
Jennifer Bird
Laura Clipson
Chrys Fey
Elizabeth Seckman
Nick Wilford
Sarah Foster
Elaine Kaye
D.R. Cartwright
C. Lee McKenzie
Carrie-Anne Brownian
Gwen Tolios
Clare Dugmore
Crystal Collier

And for a little fun, here's a few pictures of my boys:

Cole makes every box into a bed. That's his blankie
 he's sleeping with. It used to be a lace curtain until he
kept tearing it down. haha


Otis is so cute when he sleeps.


Milo likes to hide.


Clover looks like he passed out while reading.


Have a furry day! :D

    My son informed me, "Cat, mom. Cat. Duh."
