I came across the Kickstarter campaign for A Cat Never Tells on Facebook a few days ago, and knew from the moment I first saw the project that I wanted to share it with you. Created by Southern California artist Laura Seeley, this beautiful coffee table gift book goes straight for the heart.
In celebration of the love a woman has for her cat, the reader is invited to witness events of the life they share together. But one day the mood shifts… when the cat goes missing. In her profound sadness, the distraught woman wonders where her beloved pet could be. Laura’s lyrical story, filled with beautiful memories, a little humor, and a favorite toy mouse, taps into a full range of emotions.
The full color illustrations are stunning and heart touching. The book takes the reader on a visual and emotional journey of fond recollections and magical imaginings.
The Kickstarter does not contain any spoilers, so we’ll have to wait for the book to come out to know how the story ends.
I can’t wait to see this project come to fruition.
You can pre-order A Cat Never Tells, and support the project, by visiting Kickstarter.
