Happy Tails Books - My Story

OMC Friends,

I'm so excited cuz I just found out dis morning dat my story is appearing in the latest Happy Tails Book publication "Lost Souls Found, Inspiring Stories About Cats."

I could hardly believe me eyes when I read in the email message "your story has been selected."  You see, about a month ago M told me dat Happy Tails Books published a book now and then telling stories of various rescued anipals to promote adopting from shelters. She said "Mario, you should enter your toothie story because you are a rescued kitty and it is kind of a unique story.  Besides, it would just be fun to enter. So, we quickly wrote up a story because the deadline for entries was the very next day. We never dreamed dat story would be chosen for the book because of all the anipals dat probably submitted stories.

My friend @BorisKitty also submitted a story, and his story is even featured in the Preview Section. You can read his previewed story here:

Now I'm not sure which section my story appears in.  We did submit for the Featured Story Section.   We won't know for sure where it appears until we see the book.   But it is still very exciting to just be selected. Now I'm anxious to order a copy to see how many of my other friends also appear in the book.

If you are interested in purchasing a book, they are offering a pre-sale of $2.00 off per book or you can pay full price and they will make a double donation to a rescue of your choice. This special is good through November 15th.  Books are available at the Happy Tails website and will be ready to ship during or before the first week of December. Use this link to order:

NOTE: Happy Tails Happy Tails Books donates a significant portion of profits back to rescue. You can tell them where you would like your donation to go during check out.

Hope you don't mind friends, I just had to share my happy news with you. 

Until next time,

Mario
