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:

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 cat has been gone for over a year. It was just too sad. I still look for her under my desk when I'm writing. Yours are cuties.

Pat Hatt said...

Awesome idea indeed. They all look as comfy as can be. I guess there are many uses for curtains lol

Lisa Thomson said...

Aw, this is a great idea! The pictures are sooo cute of your kitties :)

Cherdo said...

Just say the word "cat" and it will be a hit. Early in my bloggin' on the flipside, I did a post about a cat and it got four times the views I was getting.

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

Vanessa Morgan said...

You have so many cats. The most I ever had was three.

I've been wanting to read Kyra Lennon's cat anthology. Now I have another reason to do so.

Have a lovely weekend.

Chrys Fey said...

Happy writing, S.K.! :D

Chrys Fey said...

More uses for curtains than I thought. lol

Chrys Fey said...

Thanks, Lisa! :) I love sharing pictures of my kitties.

Chrys Fey said...

Cats are popular. Everyone (or almost everyone) loves them. ;)

Chrys Fey said...

I'm sorry! She had a good. loving home though and that's what matters. <3

Chrys Fey said...

Oh, when I was growing up I had a lot more than 4. ;) I have four now because I rescued them together and couldn't find homes for any. Now I can't split them up.

Have a beautiful weekend, Vanessa!

Stephanie Faris said...

How fun! Your little kitties look like they have great lives.

Chrys Fey said...

They sure do! :D

Unknown said...

awww, thanks for sharing those super cute pics !!!
I do love the title of the anthology !!

Chrys Fey said...

The title for the anthology is actually the title of one of the stories in it. I believe it's Sarah Foster's story. :)

Patsy said...

Sounds like the purrrfect gift for a cat lover.

Annalisa Crawford said...

Four cats! They are all so gorgeous :-)

Chrys Fey said...

It sure is! :)

Chrys Fey said...

Sweet kitties. I have 3.

The Armchair Squid said...

Sounds like a fun collection. I got some good snuggle time in with our two cats this weekend. There are a few benefits to colder weather...

Chrys Fey said...

Aw! My four say "Hi!" to your three. :D

Chrys Fey said...

Yes, when it gets cold, my cats cuddle with me as well. :)

The Armchair Squid said...

I suppose I might resent their using me for body heat... but then, so does my wife.

Chrys Fey said...

HAHA!

Kiersi said...

Cute!! Your cats are adorable, and this sounds like a really sweet, heart-warming animal anthology. Animal stories are my favorite :) :)

Chrys Fey said...

I love animal stories, too. :)

Julie Flanders said...

Oh, I remember hearing about this anthology and wanting to get a copy and then I managed to forget about it. So glad you posted about it! Heading off to get my copy now. I can't resist animal stories. :)
