How exciting is this? We finished the revised, illustrated edition of Catscapades, Tales of Ordinary and Extraordinary Cats today—on the same day as the Catscapades blog went live.
Welcome to Catscapades, where the subject is cats, kittens, kitties, felines—those furry, purry critters that we love to love. As soon as I learn how to post photos (maybe today), I will be sharing some of the pictures from the book, those that you send in and other random cat photos. I believe that I have enough kitty cat pictures currently on hand to post a new one to the blog every day for ten or fifteen years.
Here, we will share stories about our cats. We’ll discuss cats in the news, heroic cats, famous cats, ordinary cats and issues related to cats. I envision creating a community where good writing and good cat stories come together for the purpose of entertaining, delighting and, perhaps, enlightening those who appreciate cats.
So chime in, leave a comment, tell us about the cats in your life.
FYI, the revised, illustrated edition of Catscapades, Tales of Ordinary and Extraordinary Cats is available for purchase at http://www.matilijapress.com/catscapades.html
The ebook version is $10.00 and the color print comb-bound book is $14.00. Catscapades now includes over 80 photos of over 40 cats and kittens, and features 36 true stories and numerous vignettes about my own cats and those of others.
Do I have cats? Yes, I do. Currently, Dennis and I have Max, a robust 11-year-old formerly feral brown and white boy. His coloring resembles a snowshoe or a ragdoll cat. And we have Sophie, a petite 4-year old formerly feral tortie. Actually, she is technically a calico because of a white patch on her tummy, but from the topside, she looks all tortoiseshell.
