Remember when I was interviewed by Baby Patches, Chief Kit at Nip and Bones, and I mentioned that my next book was going to have Cat Rules for humans? Well, you will get taste of what to expect from the book in my upcoming 2013 calendar! I have chosen 12 Cat Rules — one for each month — and handed them over to my designer (my human) for next year’s calendar. It should be done and up at my Zazzle store in the next couple of weeks (unfortunately my designer is not exactly prompt… it should have been done sooner). But until then I wanted to give you a couple of sneak peeks. I am pretty happy with what she has come up with:
See the tile in the above image? That is my real bathroom! Some of the backgrounds are all-original and not even part of the (expensive) graphics program my human uses. The book will look very much like the calendar images, with different layouts, backgrounds and photos to go with each rule. Let me know what you think!
Angel MoMo's mom says
Not sure I should let Charlotte get her paws on this. She is a very docile and non-demanding kitty.
Caren Gittleman says
the tile is SUPER clever in the background of that photo. I think this calendar (and your NEW book in 2013) is on my MUST HAVE LIST!
Those are great rules and we love the photos! Can’t wait to see the whole thing!
Spitty the Kitty says
I really can’t tear my eyes away from the pictures, Sparkle, but I’ll try to do some reading soon. Ha! I just LOVE rules for the Humans.
Devoted to Willow says
Loving these rules that you put together Sparkle especially the one about cuteness I’m looking forward to when it comes out so I could persuade Mom to buy it for the Holidays.
Sweet Purrfections says
That looks like a great calendar.
Ryker's Boyz 'n' Allie says
We love the rules AND the backgrounds! And…TOTALLY. Our human has even been known to Photoshop standing cuz we snagged her nice warm cozy computer chair *evil cackle*.
Oh and she says she’s TOTALLY bummed that she’ll be arriving in St. Louis about the time all of you are leaving tomorrow…*sigh*
My human was bummed that St. Louis was all the way across the state from you guys – she would have loved to visit with your human and/ or Wayside Waifs!
Oh, that is going to be a fantastic calendar for sure! We TOTALLY follow cat rule #882 in or house!
Famous SpokesGoat Pricilla says
That is very cool Sparkle. Are there any rules for goats?
I am sure you goats have rules for your humans too, Pricilla – you should come up with a list!
Tillie and Georgia says
Oh… we like your graphics too!!
Sometimes mom takes pictures of regular stuff to use as background too 🙂
Tillie and Georgia says
That looks like it will be a cool calendar!!
We like kitty rules because we know most humans don’t! heehee

Me is in awe!
Let me know as soon as the 2013 calendar is ready, I always make my daughter a cat calendar with everyone’s birthdays on it and I think she would love this one and I might forget to order it ty
Sparkle you and your hooman are so talented.
Cherry City Kitties says
Sweet! the Momma just got her office list of “stupid boring officially approved to have work pay for” calendars to which she said… meh.
She will be eagerly awaiting for us to order yours for her (shhh… we’ve been stealing change from the daddy’s dresser when he doesn’t know it!)

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties says

The Poupounette Gang says
It looks like it will be quite a treat, Sparkle!
Very cool! Humans need rules.
Layla Morgan Wilde (Cat Wisdom 101.com) says
These are very different than our recent Cat Rules poster. I like the different backgrounds.Thanks for the the reminder to get the humans cracking on calendars 🙂
Great pictures and great rules too.
Have a fun weekend.
hugs, Max, Bugsy, and Knuckles
I love these cat rules! So fun and true. Rule #882 is very well observed in our house 🙂
Glogirly & Katie says
Looks beautiful, Sparkle!!!
Glogirly loves the cool backgrounds…but I love the rules.
; ) Katie
The preview looks GREAT! Of course I’m sure it won’t do justice to the final product “in paw”, so to speak. Can’t wait to see!
We follow cat rule #882 very strictly in our house…even tho we humans have our favorite chairs if they are already occupied by the kitties we sit elsewhere (or even stand!)
Random Felines says
we can’t wait to hear more of your wisdom…..
Toby & Leia says
Pawsome work! And you are right, kitteh cuteness trumps just about everything.
Oh that calendar looks terrific. We are going to start saving our green papers so we can get one. We love the cute picture. Take care.
Those are both wonderful Sparkle and we can’t wait!
