Okay, I hope this will suffice for a Y word this year. I was going to save this for later, but I’m so happy my little fur baby got his mug printed in a magazine that I just had to share this.
Back in February, a local magazine here asked for submissions of spring pet pictures for an upcoming issue. Naturally, being the person I am, my brain went into overdrive. There had to be some way I could enter this contest. How could I let this opportunity pass me by?
After thinking on this a few days, I made a trip to the dollar store and the craft store to get some ideas. I knew the only one I could enter in this contest was Raven because he always indulges all my whims of fancy and will pose for me. The other cats won’t hold still long enough.
I decided my spring picture had to be another hat because Raven likes them and of course we’ve all heard of spring bonnets. How I wished they made cat-size hats in the party stores. But alas, nothing like that was to be found. So it was to the drawing board for me after I collected a few things at the dollar store and local party store.

Then the wait began.
I had no idea which month the pet’s pictures would be posted. When the April issue came out, I began to investigate because we no longer receive the magazines free with the newspaper. We have to pick them up in newsstands around town.

So then several emails and a week later, I finally obtained two print copies of this magazine, one for me and one for the lady at PAWS where I adopted Raven. After I told her about it, she wanted one of the magazines too.
Call me a nutty cat lady, but I’m over-the-moon about my little celebrity.
