Hello, we thought it might be helpful to give the animal and especially cat lovers among you a regular update on where we are with project: 'Completely Cats book of short stories'. Every Thursday we'll bring you a snippet and here's the first. It's pretty exciting.
Following our launch we immediately had several people contact us with pledges to contribute stories, and they're already coming in. We can't thank them enough for these offers and can't wait to read them.
We have also launched our logo which was produced by the wonderful Maggie Raynor, who illustrates Beth's books. We love it and feel it represents Completely Cats purrrrrfectly.
The Completely Cats Twitter and Facebook accounts are updated on a daily basis and we are now getting partners of International Cat Care coming forward with kind offers of help. But we still have a huge amount to do to spread the word.
One of our main worries is that there may be people out there who have super stories to share but are nervous of putting pen to paper. Our challenge is to try to allay those fears, and emphasise that this should not stop them from coming forward because we are able to help with the crafting/editing process. If anyone can think of ways we can spread the word further and provide the necessary encouragement to would-be contributors please do let us know.
Have a super day everyone!
Every month, International Cat Care's Keeping Cats Safe campaign features specific risks to cats with fantastic advice on how to keep your own cats safe. This month they're discussing the potential risks that DIY products can pose to cats. Do give the article a read here, it's full of great info to keep in mind next time you're involved in a DIY project. As you can see below, Socks loves to be involved when the decorating ladder comes out, so we have to be extra vigilant to keep her away from harmful products.
Welcome to the world of Completely Cats, a website created to celebrate and help these truly amazing animals.
Here at Completely Cats you'll find:
- Info about us and our feline beauties
- General tips and advice on hygiene and healthcare
- Purrfectly true stories in our weekly blog
- The latest Kitty Pix from our followers
- Useful links and regular news from our partners, International Cat Care, and Katzenworld
- Regular updates on our exciting new project.
We’re passionate about cats and want to make a difference, not just in sharing news and views, but by helping.
We've joined forces on a unique project with two very special organisations:
- International Cat Care, a charity based in the UK that reaches out to cat owners and providers of medical care around the globe
- Katzenworld, a fun, informative place that promotes all things cats.
By putting our own skills as author and editor to work we’re producing a book of epic short stories about cats. Some will make you laugh, some will fill you with inspiration, others may even make you cry, but every one will be heart-warming and memorable.
The book will be sold worldwide and part of the proceeds will be donated to International Cat Care to help them continue their incredible work.
As a cat lover you can help by:
- Spreading the word about our project
- Buying the book
- Submitting your own fantastic story to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Encouraging fellow cat lovers around the world to join our project.
