  1. Hello there- I’d love to win this book as I and my five rescue cats need to have a couple of belly laughs right about now. We’ve been experiencing severe financial problems and may lose our home. I can handle it, but my furkids will not. They are the ‘unadoptable’- some are semi- feral, one has spent a year in a cage in a no-kill shelter. She is older and VERY shy and doesn’t do well with other kitties. Mr Patterson is a great artist and humorist and a book of his would cheer us (ME!) up considerably! Thank you and say Hi to Ruby and Allegra for us.

  2. I would love to win. I purchase the cat calendar every year for my home, work and friends as well as save my old calendars because I love the pictures so much. The artwork is truely special.
