Cat Thursday: Authors and Cats (31)


Welcome to the weekly meme that celebrates the wonders and sometime hilarity of cats! Join us by posting a favorite LOL cat pic you may have come across, famous cat art or even share with us pics of your own beloved cat(s). It's all for the love of cats! Enjoy! (share your post in the Mr. Linky below)

The second Cat Thursday of each month is Authors and Cats Thursday. Each time I will feature an author and their cat(s).

Today is the birthday of author Anne McCaffrey who, sadly, is no longer with us. Born April 1, 1926, she was the prolific author of many fantasy/science fiction novels/series including Pern and The Talents Universe. She must have been a great cat lover because I know she wrote one book about a cat called No One Noticed the Cat (which I own). I have read a few of her books and I still own some that I have yet to read. She was a very talented author...and what a beautiful kitty she had. McCaffrey died on November 21, 2011 after suffering a stroke at her home in Ireland. RIP, dear lady.

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

  1. I've not read her yet but thinking maybe I need to. I love that photo. The two resemble each other. I love when people and their pets have a look together :)

  2. I did not know she wrote a book about a cat. I'll have to see if my library has it. That's a great photo.

  3. Everyone needs a cat. I've got two, but they prefer Bossman, my son, to me. My dog doesn't go too far though. :-)

  4. This was very interesting! You have to love "Cat People". Well, I love "Critter People".

  5. This is one of those instances where the cat and the owner seem to have grown to look alike!

    She also had a great sense of humor. One time she fell in October and gave herself two black eyes. She posted a picture and said that maybe she needed to change her Halloween costume this year.

    I've read most of her books and only found two series I didn't like. Acorna and the second Petaybee trilogy.
