My Cats are Truly Stars Now

Two in the Tub!

I know they’re the perfect models because I’m photographing and sketching and painting their images all the time.

But what a great thrill when someone else thinks they’re great subjects too, and their images are published in a book!

These photos are baby photos from the Fantastic Four as they explored the house at a few months old; at left are Jelly Bean and Mewsette, below are Mr. Sunshine and Giuseppe. It’s pretty funny now to see them this little; they’ve all grown to be quite big cats.

Author Allia Zobel Nolan is a friend through the Cat Writer’s Association. She’s written, um, 150, 175…books? I’m not sure at this point, but in her career as an author and editor, including children’s editor at Reader’s Digest Books, she’s written more books than we all have fingers and toes to count on for children and adults with humorous, educational and religious themes and several specifically about cats.

This book is Cat Confessions: A “Kitty Come-Clean” Tell All Book, which gives out cats the opportunity to admit that they really did lick the salt off potato chips, and that they do know how to use the computer and do so when we leave the room.

The book is due for release this summer, published by Harvest House Publishers. Read about the book on Allia’s website and click to for information on pre-ordering.

And to see more photos of my famous cats, visit my website photo galleries and find “my cats” under “animals” in the menu.


From health and welfare to rescue and adoption stories, advocacy and art, factual articles and fictional stories, "The Creative Cat" offers both visual and verbal education and entertainment about cats for people who love cats, pets and animals of all species.

    Thanks for the congratulations, and thanks again to Allia for using my photos! Yes, that family of black kitties is an inspiring subject, from newborns to kittenhood to now and no doubt beyond. Don’t tell them it’s all becuase I decided they had to earn their keep…they have no idea they are working!
