fessin’ up for Animal Attraction

Remember the end of the movie Clue, where they say, “That’s how it could have happened…”?

Well, here’s how it really happened…

I knew from the very beginning that I wouldn’t be able to attend Lori Foster’s Reader & Author Get Together this year because, alas, I am a cat mama.  And one of my babies will be celebrating her 17th birthday while everyone else is in Ohio, having a grand old time & celebrating the fabulous release of ANIMAL ATTRACTION.

Normally, I’d try to find a pet sitter to watch The Kittehs while I was away, but though Miss Precious is holding her own at such an advanced age, unfortunately, she can’t be left alone for long.  She needs special food & special medicine & constant monitoring.  And even if I convinced her veterinarian to stay with her for the weekend in my place, it wouldn’t do much good—Miss Precious won’t come out from under my bed for anybody but me.  I have a friend who’s been to the house numerous times over the years & she’s still never seen my eldest kiddo.  In fact, my friend calls her “Phantom Kitty” & often remarks that she “doesn’t believe she exists.” :laughingdog2

But she does!  And because I love her & want her to have the best life possibly for as long as possible, I’m happy to stay home with her, even if it cuts into any fun I might have outside of the house & makes me seem totally anti-social. :runkitty   Thankfully, Lori Foster is a huge animal lover herself (duh—look what she’s doing for the Animal Adoption Foundation!) & completely understood my need to put my baby ahead of a super-fun weekend with the girls.

And for those of you who are at Lori Foster’s Reader & Author Get Together right now—never fear!  I didn’t leave you in the lurch.  As promised, if you buy a print copy of ANIMAL ATTRACTION at the event, is will be signed by all four authors.  Lori, Jules, & Maisey will be there to sign in person, & I sent along adorable autographed bookplates to be included with each copy sold.

For those of you who are stuck at home like I am & didn’t make it to Lori Foster’s Reader & Author Get Together, either, remember that you can still get the e-book of ANIMAL ATTRACTION, our wonderful collection of fun, sexy stories to raise money for the Animal Adoption Foundation‘s no-kill shelter!  100% of Author/Agent proceeds go to the AAF.

    Awwww….Happy Birthday Miss Precious!!!!

    I tend to avoid Saturdays here because, well, I keep forgetting to stock up on eye bleach and I know I’m gonna need it!!!! But not today, because look at that precious baby. THOSE EYES!!!! She is such a sweetie!

    • Heidi says:

      Thank you—I’ll pass the b’day wishes along to her. She had some yummy food she loves for lunch, so she’s a happy girl. :yarnkitty

      She *does* have gorgeous eyes, btw. And you should see her Billy Idol sneer…I can never seem to catch a picture of it, but sometimes when she smiles, only one lip goes up cuz she’s missing a front tooth. :cutekittygreen

    Aww…Happy Birthday to your precious kitty!! :kittyeyes One of my two cats is anti-social and when someone knocks on the door she runs and hides under the bed covers.

    Congrats on ANIMAL ATTRACTION! It is a deserving cause.

    • Heidi says:

      Miss Precious will be so excited to be getting all these birthday wishes—thank you!

      My poor girl doesn’t even like the other cats coming in her room, so people are completely verboten! But with me, she’s a total teddy bear; she loves to sit on my lap & be brushed & play with dangling string.

      And of course she’s a rescue kitty, so she LOVES the ANIMAL ATTRACTION anthology. She thinks everybody should help needy kitty cats (& goggies, if they must :rundogrun ) the way she was helped. :heartkitty
