It's time for my second update for Catabet to introduce you to our B character!
I was about halfway into writing the text before I came up with the idea to name all the characters after fashion icons, and this was the original name that was hardest to give up--Bartholemew. I loved the punny play on words to have "mew" in the name, plus my guy really looks like a Bartholemew to me. Nonetheless, I have now settled on the name "Bruno" for a multitude of international designers-- Bruno Schiavi of Australia, Bruno Pieters from Brussels, and Bruno Basso from Brazil.
B is for Bruno, who, from this day hereby,pledged to never be seen without his bowtie!
You may have caught a glance at this kitty in my Kickstarter video or the image I initially posted on the campaign page, but I decided that I wasn't quite happy with that initial incarnation so eyes and whiskers have been recently modified to spice him up a little. I might add a boutonniere as well, so don't be surprised if you see that in the book!
Bruno is a Bengal Cat, which is a breed that looks a lot like a leopard. I still have to write the very last part of the text on this page, so I'll include that breed name there.
I'm honored to be Kickstarter's featured publishing project today and am crossing my fingers that it will bring me closer to hitting the 75% mark today.....only $270 away from that milestone! Thank all of you who have helped me get this far in only five days and I can't wait to show you the next eight kitties that I plan to present in the next week! If you haven't pledged yet, what are you waiting for? Click here to be my valentine by helping me hit 75%!
