Cat Thursday | Authors and Cats | Leann Sweeney (June 12)

Welcome to Cat Thursday, y'all, written by me, Maxie!  (Jane helped a little.) 

Cat Thursday is the weekly meme, hosted by Michelle at The True Book Addict, 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 some pictures of your own beloved cat(s). It's all for the love of cats! Enjoy! (Share your post in the Mr. Linky on The True Book Addict.)

The second Cat Thursday of each month is Authors and Cats Thursday. Each time we will feature an author and his/her cat(s).  

My featured author for June is Leann Sweeney.

the Rainbow Bridge in 2011 at age 16

Leann Sweeney is the author of the NY Times bestselling Cats in Trouble Mysteries, one of our favorite cozy mystery series.  Book six, The Cat, the Vagabond, and the Victim, is coming August 5th, and we are looking forward to it! 


Here are the stars of the Cats in Trouble Mysteries.  Merlot is a red tabby Maine Coon, Chablis, a Himalayan, and Syrah, sorrel ticked Abyssinian.  Chablis is an homage to Leann's angel kitty Indigo, shown in the photo with Leann (above).

Leann is currently owned by two cats, Wexford, a silver tabby ragdoll cat, and Marlowe, a traditional ragdoll.
