A Purr-fect Farewell

by Karen Rose Smith

This will be my last blog as a Cozy Chick. I’ve enjoyed the past two years blogging weekly, interacting with readers and hearing what you think about cozy mysteries. I’m going to devote more time to writing my Daisy's Tea Garden mysteries...visiting tea rooms...and interacting with readers at those book signings. Every once in a while I make a shift in my career and this is one of those times. I’ll still be chatting with you on my personal and author Facebook pages and Twitter as well as posting photos on Instagram.

 A huge part of my life is spent caring for our seven cats.  My husband and I adopted five rescues (Paddy, Halo, Zoie Joy, Zander and Freya) who are inside and we are still trying to socialize Bonnie and Clyde who spend their evenings and nights in our basement. I believe being a cat mom involves more than feeding and caring for them takes up a large part of my time. I try to give each of our fur kids petting, conversation and affection every day.

I want to wish all of you the best year of your lives, as well as health and success in all your endeavors. I also want to give every one of you a big Cozy Chicks hug. Thank you for being part of my life.

Karen, we loved having you in the Cozy Chicks group and will miss you! Your warmth, your humor, your books and of course, your kitties!! But you will always be in our hearts and we will keep touch online. Great photos, the kitties are lucky to have such a fabulous cat mom and we are lucky to have you as a friend.

I can't believe her husband would let her have so many cats. Good grief! They're cats, not humans! Also, her loony left-wing politics prevent me from reading her books. Authors should stay out of politics.

Gollies, I'm going to miss your columns. They are so interesting and you always bring something fascinating to the table.
Thank you and the best of good fortune to you.
