Well. Have you ever wondered where the library gets its books? My library gets a whole lot of books from Baker & Taylor. They are a big-time book and entertainment distributor and they are very good at getting us books and movies and things super-fast. They also have two cats as mascots.
Here are Baker and Taylor:
Baker and Taylor were Scottish fold cats who worked at the Douglas County Public Library before becoming international superstar mascots in 1988. Their images continue to appear on Baker & Taylor marketing materials, and they are usually featured on Baker & Taylor's calendar.
This year B&T had a special Cat Calendar Contest in June. Thankfully, June was back before AB Christine became a lazy bum, and she managed to take a whole 20 minutes out of her "busy" day to enter me in the contest.
I was really excited to hear that I would be included in the 2014 Cat Calendar!
I wasn't quite expecting this, though:

It's a good time to be a librarian--and a great time to be a Library Cover-Cat!
I'm on the BACK cover, too!
Here's the little "About Tober" box so you can read it better:
Our library's B&T sales consultant, Joan, made a special trip to the library to see me and take pictures and leave a few extra calendars for my staff. (I thought there might be a scuffle over the couple that came in the mail.) Joan was really happy because TWO Indiana cats made it into the calendar. Uma (Miss August) was entered into the contest by Becca from Bloomfield-Eastern Greene County Public Library!
There are lots of nice-looking cats in the Baker & Taylor calendar, and I am honored to be the one chosen for the cover.
It's obviously my whiskers. They are pretty great whiskers. Or my eyes. Pools of molten gold.
Okay, I'd better wrap this up. AB Christine is getting fussy and muttering something about a Big Head.
My head is perfectly proportionate, thank-you-very-much.
Maybe that's why I'm on the Cover.
