Storytime With Athena and Marie: A Forever Home For Athena, Chapter 9

A Forever Home For Athena was published in 2013. The book is based on Athena's real-life story, but for creative purposes the chapters prior to when her mum Marie adopted her from Wood Green, The Animals Charity are fiction. Athena was indeed abandoned in someone's garden in North London though, and she shared a pen with a black kitten called Lily at the shelter. At the time of publication, we donated a percentage of the royalties to pet rescue charities. But for some years now ALL royalties will be donated.

We are joining The Cat on My Head for
Sunday Selfies

After the filming of Storytime Chapter 9, Mum took the opportunity to snap some selfies of us together. I was still so sleepy that I just went along with it.

Mum came out blurry in this photo as you can see

So she experimented with some artsy effects to improve it a little.

This is one of the Lomo Art effects from BeFunky

And here's another Lomo Art effect

But we think this one is our fave - the Pinhole effect.
