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 be a part of the book by submitting a letter to your cat along with a photo.
CAT FANCY and CatChannel.com will also select three winners from the submissions to receive personal photo books from Shutterfly!
“While it’s easy to say ‘I love you’ out loud to our children and loved ones every day, sometimes we take for granted the non-verbal exchange of emotion we share with our cats,” creator Lisa Erspamer said. “Taking the time to sit down and put into words what it is we really feel for our felines – I think even the most devoted cat lover can be taken aback. “
