A Cat Calendar to Meow About and a Great Cause to Support

calendar3caledar4Hey, Kitties. I know you and your humans probably got a ton of calendars for the holidays and January is almost over, but my author won a special limited edition one recently in a birthday contest for 17-year old Clyde that I think you should really check out before the last copies are gone. Not only does it feature cute cats, but it includes cat-related holidays, moon phases, and international holidays. Even better, the calendar is connected to a new cat book coming out featuring debonair black felines. The calendar and book both support a pawsome project that I want to share with you.

The entire black cat initiative to raise awareness and shelter adoption rates began as a Kickstarter campaign last summer. It’s a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit for the book, calendar and all merchandise. I’ve included a video testimonial by Chris Poole from Cole and Marmalade, two of my favorite video cat actors, that explains this purrfectly wonderful project.

clyde2The Black Cat Tells All book is due to be released in early Spring, 2017 with pre-orders available in February. Clyde and the editor and author of the one of the stories who is also the founder of the Black Cat Initiative, Layla Morgan Wilde, are very busy now preparing for the book release, but I would very much like to interview Clyde one day soon.

laylamorganMs. Wilde considers the Black Cat Initiative her “passion project.” As editor of Black Cats Tell All, curated story and poem submissions for the book and devised a feline purrsonality profile questionnaire. She also curated thousands of images for the anthology and worked closely with a copy editor and book designer to create a unique visual narrative for it. She said that she found the job which included curating large numbers of images from over 60 professional and amateur photographers to over 300 photographs  for acceptable quality for printed and e-versions of the book “more daunting than expected” but one which she hopes will “stem the tide of black cat prejudice in the U.S. and beyond.” and, considers the Black Cat Initiative her “passion project” and hopes it will “stem the tide of black cat prejudice in the U.S. and beyond.”
