It’s that spooky time of the year when you never know what’s lurking around the corner. Merlin and Gris Gris were lazing in the sun yesterday while I sported my new temporary tattoo from Cattoodesign.com of a cat. The harsh shadow looked ominous and before you could say boo!, I had some fun with photo editing. I’ll be blogging more about the tattoo this week and a fun giveaway.
Not all cats enjoy domestic bliss. It’s National Feral Cat Day (excellent info at AlleyCat.org) http://www.alleycat.org/NFCD?gclid=CPXcg-bR7asCFUZ-5QodBm8mLA We are proud to announce our feral boy Domino is featured today at The Conscious Cat http://consciouscat.net/2011/10/16/national-feral-cat-day/
I have a couple more fabulous giveaways coming up but I can’t tell you yet. But…
You’ll have to wait, but today I’m dying to share this spooky cat book sure to send a shiver up your spine. Randy Russell has written several books about ghosts and folklore. In fact, he calls himself ghostlorist. His publicist sent me his book about cat ghosts and folklore from the American South titled Ghost Cats of the South and I devoured it in one sitting. The 22 stories, each illustrated with vintage photo of a cat, enchanted, enthralled and yes, spooked me. These ghost cats display devotion and vengeance from beyond the grave. Whether you believe in ghosts or not, it will make you look at your cat differently. I can’t think of a better gift for spooky Halloween campfire storytelling.
