    I love cats. I currently have 3 and help take care of many friends kitties when they go on vacation. I am a nurse and work in a family practice office. I have been buying Gary Patterson kitty calenders for years to hang in our patient rooms. They are loved by many of our patients.

    Gary has always captured my cats and their personalities through his drawings. Winning this book would be like getting a piece of my cats with Gary’s take on them. I love my cats. Always have and always will. And as long as Gary is around he in some ways immortalizes them through his art….

    I bought Mr Patterson’s 2013 calendar in March of 2013 because I wanted it and no one bought it for me. I have return address labels of the cats and reorder when I run out. Our cats passed at 18 and 20 years and I would love the book to remember Jasmine and Allison. Thank you.

    A Gary Patterson calendar has graced my kitchen wall for SO many years and I have enjoyed every drawing. Every month I so enjoy seeing the new drawing but also have fun searching for the mouse. I have owned indoor cats (or maybe they have owned me) for 40 years and Gary has a way of capturing their expressions so well. I am such a loyal fan of his that I would feel honored to have anything with his autograph.

    Hello Ingrid,

    I collect books about cats and have currently more than a hundred books. However, the book by Gary Patterson I still haven’t got in my possession. I’ve already ordered several times from Dutch booksellers. After several times waiting for a long time. I got the announcement that it is not available anymore. Now I have the change to win a copy and also signed ! That’s really great. I hope you will make me very happy with a copy of this book. I have shared this post on my facebook page in the Netherlands.

    Greetings Erna

    I have Loved Gary Pattersons work for over 30 years. I use to have a poster he made of skiers, I bought in Jackson Hole. I’ve been a fan ever since. I wish I still had the poster, it was hillarious. We have the cat antics checks, and get so many great comments about them. I love all his work!
