it's a pet museum giveaway!



When cats aren't ruling the world, they're charming the hearts of the people who care for them, as chronicled in the new release Chicken Soup for the Soul: Loving Our Cats (Chicken Soup for the Soul, LLC, August 2008, $14.95, paperback). Their newest pet lovers title bundles tales about cats who healed their owners, rejuvenated relationships, gave new meaning to life and mended family rifts.

This is an excerpt from the press release for the latest Chicken Soup for the Soul title. There's lots more: inside this book you'll read about "Oscar, the garbage can kitty who won the heart of one dog-loving dad," and "Star, the cat who is celebrated every Christmas with an ornament in her likeness." 101 stories over 12 chapters cover everything from "The Power of the Bond" to "Hero Cats" to "Saying Goodbye."

As it happens, I have three copies of this nice book courtesy of Phenix & Phenix Literary Publicists. My job is to give 'em away, give 'em away, give 'em away now (I can't help sneaking a Red Hot Chili Peppers reference in there).

Lucky me! And soon, lucky three of you!

Leave a comment saying "I want a shot at that book!" or that kind of thing. Can't leave a comment for some reason? Drop a line at thepetmuseum@gmail.com . Three winners will be chosen at random on October 24th 2008 and announced on Halloween, Friday October 31st.

This would be the first cat story book if I happen to be the lucky one :)

What? I don't have a shelf? Well, SS would just have to make room for me. After all, she has so many books, why can't I have one?

Red Hot Chili Peppers, so funny Curator. Thanks for all your kind thoughts and wishes on Daddy's recovery.

I'd love to toss my name in the pile. Maybe this will encourage Mommy to finally get me an agent so I will be able to get my book published, then I can give away copies too!
