Coraline, Calendar Cat!

A while back, on a whim, I submitted the photo below (which I've posted on this blog previously, but am re-posting for easy reference) of Coraline climbing the orange tree in my yard to Alley Cat Allies in response to a call for pictures for their 2013 calendar.

I didn't expect anything to come of it, but lo and behold, I got an email last week indicating my picture had been accepted. So now, presuming the designers can fit the photo to their layout (there was a disclaimer in the note I received) Cora gets to be a calendar cat.

Of course this isn't some kind of earth-shaking event, but Alley Cat Allies is definitely doing good work (advocating for TNR and encouraging/educating people to take responsibility for the cats in their community) and I am delighted to be able to contribute something that they can use in their literature and publications. I suspect Cora would approve as well, given she herself started out as a feral kitten and if not for the material on ACA's website I might not have had the confidence to actually try my hand at Trap-Neuter-Adopt (for Cora and her brothers) or Trap-Neuter-Return (which many of their colony cousins have since benefitted from).


  1. Congratulations!!! The colours are fantastic in this photo! :)

  2. I would be surprised if they don't use it, it's a wonderful shot. Both colorful and the expression on Coraline's face is priceless. Congrats!

  3. Anthropomorphia/Audrey/CPP: Thanks! I am looking forward to seeing the other kitties in the calendar too. :D And yes, the colors are amazing. I can't take credit for that, though, Cora's eyes just happened to match the oranges, and the lighting was really good that day.
