Cat Thursday - Authors and Cats (54)

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! (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 with their cat(s), or pictured with a cat(s).

Happy Birthday to Joyce Carol Oates on June 16th! I have featured Ms. Oates several times because she is one of the authors most prolifically photographed with cats. She really must be a cat lover (of course she is. Why would she not? *wink*).

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. Didn't know Joyce Carol Oates was a cat lover - cats and books seem to have some kind of connection :)
    This is a beautiful picture!

  2. Thought I commented earlier? No doubt she is a cat lover :)

  3. Indeed, why wouldn't she be a cat lover?!!
