 Astrid and Lisbeth Today

Angels, it is hard to believe that nearly two years have passed since we met you and you came to live with us and the other Kitties Blue. You were both so small; though, Astrid, back then you were bigger than Lisbeth. But whereas you have remained itty-bitty, Lisbeth has grown into a substantial cat.

We wish you had stayed as close to each other as you were when we brought you home. Maybe as you weren’t true siblings (though raised by the same mom), it makes a difference to the two of you. Even though you have gone your separate ways, we love you both equally and plan on you being in our lives well into the future.

Love, Mom and Dad 


P.S. Don’t forget about the following call for submissions. You only have a couple more days before the deadline.

The creator of the book A Letter To My Dog™ is working on the natural follow up: A Letter To My Cat.  The upcoming tome will feature a compilation of cat portraits accompanied by personal letters from devoted cat owners.

To create a volume of pet owners’ stories, the team behind the book is putting a call out to cat owners for story and photo submissions.

You can potentially be featured in the book by submitting a letter to your cat along with a photo!

The book team requires the following for submission:

•    Your letter: Please start it “Dear XXX,” and remember to sign it (Love, Mom / Dad…etc.). The length should be under 500 words.

•    Photos: We need you to submit a few photos of your cat alone, no people. Ideally, these would be your own photos, but if they are professional, please include photographer information so we can contact them for the rights if necessary.

•    Contact Info: Please include your full name, mailing address, phone number, email address and any website/blog/social media info.

Remember to include any stories that highlight your cat’s unique personality and expresses how much he/she means to you!



Deadline for submissions is 8/20/13.
