Commencing & Closing With Animals

What An Animal 2012


Well, this takes the cake.  I’m churning out early commitments to 2013 activities, after a week of closing 2012 events…  and find myself wonderfully eligible for one that is valid until February!  This is one of many reasons to love people who commence & conclude away from the traffic Jan – Dec circles generate!

This makes 17 groups, all properly finished, for my first time competing.  This indeed sets a record for joining an event latest in the year of all!  I cherish animals and Yvonne chose this adorable portrait for “What An Animal V“.  One of my sweet kittens lays in an office chair beside me, as I begin & close with this post.

At least 6 books with any of these requirements:
A.  There is an animal in the title of the book

B.  There is an animal on the cover of the book

C.  An animal plays a major role in the book

D.  A main character is (or becomes) an animal.

I love cat mysteries and clean the clock on this one!  Including reviews, I completed the 21 novels below that prominently feature cats and others.  I discounted 3 that depict cats on their covers but didn’t incoporate them in the books.
