Lucy Is A Star!

Nothing livens up a drab, overcast Monday afternoon like finding a mysterious package at your front door. That was the case this week, when a box from Workman Publishing arrived. It was particularly surprising given that Lady had not sounded the "DANGER!! INTRUDER!!" alert, which occurs with the appearance of any human being within a 100 yard radius of the house. Puzzled, I carried the box into the kitchen, found a pair of scissors to open the seam, and peered inside...

WHAT??? Lucy is a winner?... Lucy is a winner!!!! According to the publisher's letter, her photo has been chosen to grace the pages of next year's 365 Cats page-a-day calendar! Yaaaaay Lucy!!!! Our little Lucy Bowtie is Miss December 28th!

We are so proud, we are just busting at the seams. The congratulations letter and advance copy of the calendar are proudly on display, and we are preparing to take advantage of the ordering discount extended to winners. (Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas this year?? ha!) Lucy, for her part, seems to be taking the sudden fame and fortune in stride. There have already been some requests for autographs, so we've been practicing. What do you think? 

Never mind that expression on her face in the above photo. The attention from the paparazzi is already getting a bit tedious I think. She has promised to smile when we do her actual publicity photo shoot. 

My goodness, what a surprise this was!!! I had completely forgotten about submitting a photograph for this contest. Fun, fun! :)


  1. Wow, congratulations! That's so exciting!

  2. Wow, a calendar girl!! Watch out for calls from PlayKitty magazine!

  3. That is so cool, and what a great surprise! Congrats!

  4. How exciting! I hope all this stardom doesn't go to her head. But then how would you notice anyway, she IS a cat.


  5. Congratulations to Lucy Bowtie! (We knew her when.)

  6. That's so exciting! You live with a super model now!! haha. Congrats!
