This is a contest for cat lovers!
Instead of introducing you to an adorable cozy pet, we're going to have you try to guess the names of three famous fictional cats. They all work together in the same series of books and while they do all the typical things real-life cats do, these cats also help an amateur sleuth investigate crimes.
No, they're not quite looking for clues using a magnifying glass, but they have their methods. They also serve to comfort their mistress, make her laugh, and get in her way when she's trying to sew one of her soft and colorful quilts.
Here are the clues about the three cats: One always sits on top of the sofa behind our heroine and is a smart alpha. The second cat is big, has a long red coat, and is the "watch cat". And the third is champagne with seal points, allergic to human dander, and is a total lap kitty.
Do you think you know their names?
If so, please DO NOT POST in the comments section, but email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your guess. One lucky winner will receive this I LOVE CATS prize pack from the ASPCA (earrings, water bottle, and super cool cat toy). Not only will these goodies make you smile, but we'll be helping shelter animals. A pretty great combo, I'd say.
One last hint: The author of these books has a new release on April 3rd.
I'll post the cover next week when I announced the prize pack winner! Good luck, kitty lovers!
