UPDATE: THE CALENDARS ARE SOLD OUT AT THE RESCUE. If you would like to order a calendar, contact me directly by emailing me! firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m just so excited to share this with you!! After another year of photographing hundreds of cats for Seattle Area Feline Rescue, I’ve designed another calendar for the following year, and the 2017 SAFe Rescue Cat Calendar is now on sale to benefit the cats. I put a quick poll on my Facebook page that led to a gallery to get some quick input to help narrow my shortlist, but boy, it is HARD to narrow down the images. This year, 16 cats and kittens show their face in and on the calendar; I honestly wish I could show you ALL the cats I have images of but even those wouldn’t make it into a cat-a-day calendar. But they’re ALL beautiful!
Best part: YOU get to look at some of the beautiful cats that I photographed last year, by having a copy of the calendar in your home, when you purchase one, so YOU MUST. And it’s not a flimsy cheapo calendar. NOPE! It’s an 11 x 17 inch wire-bound calendar, on satin-paper stock (smooth to write on), with boxes that give you ample room to write your info on each day, and I included lots of cool pet holidays on the calendar (so you don’t forget important things like ‘Hug Your Cat Day’). And NEW this year: rescue stories and info about the cats I included!
I tried to balance out some of my favorite and YOUR favorite images with some of the most remarkable rescue stories of the year, as well as present a good selection of the kinds of kitties that come through the rescue doors. It’s so hard to pick though. And with the ones that didn’t make it in the calendar, soon I’m going to make prints and cards available. I sincerely appreciate the love for these sweet faces. It’s also heartwarming to hear from people who adopted these cats and remember these cats. They’re all so special, and I love hearing from anyone and everyone. I put so much work and soul into this, I really hope you love it too.
And the superstar cat at the end of the calendar, who had her photo taken in her new home, is Bindi the blind kitty. You will have to get the calendar to see her new photo, looking entirely blissful! She is so happy now! Here she is way back when I first met her, before she had her two eye surgeries, and before she found her forever home.
Once the calendars arrive at the rescue, the options are to have one mailed to you, or if you are local to Seattle, you can pick one up. I am pondering adding in a Holiday print of the cats for people. Maybe for the first 25 orders or those who come to the rescue to pick up their calendar. What do you think, friends?Calendars will be hot off the press on December 23rd in a LIMITED BATCH, so pay for your pre-order now!
Well, on that note, I hope you get your calendar, and I hope the New Year ahead is a happy, healthy, and warm-cat (and dog) -filled one!
