Kitty Karma Cat Tales #ThursdayThoughts

As animal rescue advocates, we just had to share this wonderful crowdfunding campaign from Kitty Karma Books which aims to cover publishing and production costs for Kitty Karma: Big Stories of Small Cats Who Change Our Lives. Proceeds from book sales will go directly to benefit three needy cat shelters. 

Cat tales fund shelters for abandoned, unwanted felines in need

The campaign began October 1 so it's not too late to donate. Your donation will help raise funds to cover publishing and production costs of Kitty Karma: Big Stories of Small Cats Who Change Our Lives.  The pre-campaign is now live and affords opportunities to sign up and receive 10% discount on campaign contributions.

The book’s collection of stories, donated for free by nearly two dozen authors, will feature tales of adventure cats and feral cats; cats who are sailing on high seas off the coasts of New Zealand and Mexico; and a cat sanctuary located in a war zone. Readers will learn about a popular cat café in Ontario, Canada as well the first cat café in India.

The book will be published and available for sale in November. All net proceeds from book sales will be donated to support three incredible cat shelter charities – Il Gattaro D’aleppo in Syria, Abay Kitties of Hawaii, and Whangatamata CAT in New Zealand.  

What is the book about?

Kitty Karma: Big Stories of Small Cats Who Change Our Lives is a heart-warming and heart-rending collection of stories that unveils a world of cats rarely seen and rarely known, and the book’s remarkable editorial contributors are united by one simple thing: a fierce and passionate love for cats.  Contributors include:
· Siglinda Scarpa: An Italian artist and animal rights activist founder and primary benefactor for cat sanctuary The Goathouse Refuge in Pittsboro, North Carolina.
· Alessandra Abidin: A Lebanese-born violinist with degrees in political science and international relations, who works in Switzerland and other countries in the field of immigration and war crimes.
· Lori Ostlund and Anne Raeff. The only writing couple to have individually won the Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction.
