Jennifer Kacey: Man’s Best Friend (Giveaway)
Friday, August 18th, 2017

I’m not just talking dogs here, and I’m not just talking dudes. I want to talk about all creatures big or small that fall into the pet category. And that’s for every man, woman and child out there.

I love writing animals into books. I think they’re wonderful and comforting and familiar. Sometimes even nostalgic.

One of my favorites I’ve ever written is Voldemort the cat in No Place Like Home.

I got to throw “the Dark Lord” jokes in the book and “meow” for conversation and picture how warm and cuddly he is with a tiny character named Addison.

One of my favorite animals I’ve ever had was named Oscar. Also a cat. He had some of the most beautiful striped markings I’ve ever seen. And he used to stand on the counter and meow at me until I stood in front of him so he could hug me. He was an awesome cat!

Currently I have a 60-gallon freshwater fish tank with around 40 fish in it. Some of them glow under black light, and we also have a 14” sucker fish who is…..hmm……..9 years old.

So I want to hear about your pets! 4 legged or two, furr or feathers, cluck or bark! What do you have now, what do you love, what would you LOVE to have??

Let’s have a giveaway with an AWESOME bag of goodies for one lucky poster! Three print books and lots and lots of other swag and kinky goodies! Plus a tshirt and a pretty purple WIP bag to hold it all!

**GIVEAWAY – US ONLY** – Just look at all the awesomeness you could win!! So tell me the story of your favorite animal!!

I’ll pick a winner on Monday the 21st!! Good Luck!! PS –It’s always great to leave your email address in your comment so I can contact you! Hate not being able to give winners their goodies!!

Decadently Yours,
Jennifer Kacey

    I have a million stories of all my favorites. I shelter elderly cats, and at the moment I have 12. I also feed cat colonies where I live. I am up at 4:30, and make the rounds. Some of my cats are on Instagram @stewartaudrey. My husband is just learning to use it, then he can teach me.
    My favorite story would be about “Special”. He came to our house as a skinny beat up Tom with a great big head. We trapped him and got him fixed. We could never touch him.
    Then one day he went under the house and was really sick for 2 days. We couldn’t get to him because my house sits about a foot off the ground. I was ready to call those people that jack up houses and the fire department to get him.
    He finally came out, and went into the yard, and used the bathroom. I had been sitting a vigil for 2 days. I just opened the back door, and in he came, and just laid down.
    My husband grabbed him and put him in a cat carrier, and we rushed him to the vet. I told the vet how wild he was, and when he reached into get him, “Special” just curled up in his arms. He handed him to me, and to this day he is my love.
    The vet said he was pretty old, and had lived the rough life of a fighting tom cat for years. He has no teeth, as most of my cats don’t. But all day long, I tell “Special” how much I love him. He is my sweetheart.

    After losing my blue heeler Bandit 3 years ago to old age (he was 17) I didn’t think I would ever want another dog. And then at the end of June we brought this beautiful 8 week old blue merle Australian shepherd home. For the first time in 20 years I have a puppy in the house. That takes some getting used to again. But he’s already brought so much joy to us and since I’m disabled and home alone all day he’s such good company. debbiew1966@hotmail.com

    My favorite story is about my daughters cat. When my daughter was 5 all she wanted for Christmas was at kitty which of course she got. Lol They were inseparable and when she started school the cat (Chloe) waited by the door for her and when she walked through the door the Chloe would hold her arms up like a child to be picked up. So cute. My daughter had that cat for over 10 yrs which the vet said was unusual for a calico.

    We currently do not have any official pets. But we have three young white tail deer bucks who love to come into the front yard and try to steel the bird feeed out of the bird feeders. They also demolished my beautiful cherry trees of all their fruit this year. Oh well, less work for me. I guesss.
    Only other “unofficial ” pets are the hummingbirds, juncos, finches, chickadees, and sparrows that feed at the feeders. Oh and who could forget the five squirrels who give endless entertainment everyday.

    My husband and I live with my parents to take care of them. They have a small lab-king charles mix dog named Nikki. Lately at night when I’m taking care of my dad’s legs, Nikki has been trying to hid this small bone of hers. She does it when we’re both up and can watch her. She’s put it in a corner, in between our medical supply boxes, under the pillow on the couch, beside the plant, in her kennel. But nothing is ‘just right’ for her. She’s still looking. 🙂 hehe.

    I have had so many great pets over the years… one was my best friend growing up… his name was Oscar and he was a parrot. A friend of the family gave him to me… Oscar was the best… he would give me kisses, play hide and seek, guard my room from others, etc. I had him for years, then one day I saw him in the bottom of his cage… I looked closer and there was an egg! All these years I was told Oscar was a boy and it turned out he was a girl! I loved that bird was sad when he passed away. greenshamrock atcox dotnet

    In the last 43 years we have only be without a dog for about 2.5 months. We got our first puppy when we’d only been married a month. He was being kept in a cage with a small pig. Our vet was so happy we rescued him from that environment and he lived to be 15.

    Our current fur baby was adopted from an animal shelter about 6 weeks after our second dog died (she was 16). We waited to adopt another dog because we wanted one that was less than 15 lbs and those get snapped up quickly from shelters and rescue groups. It was wonderful and ironic that the dog we finally got looked almost exactly like the dog we just lost except she was a female.

    Buttons is the light of our lives. He is a very spy 15 year-old Toy Poodle. I call him my grand-puppy (since we don’t have kids) because he’s been allowed to get away with stuff none of our other dogs could. He was very sick last fall and we thought we were going to lose him. He has kidney failure but he’s holding his own now and you would never know he has a problem. No one who meets him can believe that he’s 15.

    Thanks for the giveaway! buttonsmom2003 at gmail dot com

    Right now I have a Doberman Pinscher named Zeus, a hermit crab, and a lizard. I’ve had turtles and a guinea pig before as well along with another Doberman. I would love love love to have a red and white husky! That’s my dream pet lol Also would like to have a cat. My dog, Zeus, is the biggest baby ever and enjoys jumping in my chair when I get up for a second, being lazy all day and up all night (just like me lol), chasing any flies that get into the house, and being an expert food thief…… seriously, he’s like a freaking ninja…..never see him coming until it’s too late 🙂 Thanks for the chance! flava_sava_chick(at)yahoo(dot)com

    Oh goodness, my favorite pet story. Wow! You don’t ask much. What to share. My first dog that I don’t really remember because I was just a baby but there is a picture of him with his paws around me keeping guard. I am told he was an amazing babysitter. Or the next dog, that I do remember, Boots – who was also a good babysitter. Or the dog we got for my daughter. Waldo was the only dog in the pound that fussed over her. Wasn’t our plan that he was also the biggest. There were jokes about needing a saddle or a harness and cart when we checked out with him. Waldo too became a wonderfully helpful nanny to my toddler daughter who had a talent for slipping supervision and getting into trouble. My most recent pet was a rescue cat that I named Dusty. She was a nice companion for a few years. So many pets and fond memories over the years. Thank for the trip down memory lane.

    We’ve always had cats growing up. No less then 2. We also had rats. Surprisingly they got along. I have old photos of them cuddled together sleeping. The main cat we had growing up was a hunter. We lived in an old building in the city that my mom taught her dance school out of to it was huge. Bats would get in. The cat would sit there for an hour or more watching the bat to learn his flying pattern (apparently they fly the same pattern over and over) and would catch and kill them. He was also a great mouser and killer of gigantic cockroaches. When we moved to the country we picked up 3 female strays that joined the male cats we already had. You know, the kind of stray that you put food out for and they keep coming back and next thing you know they are in your bed taking over the pillows!
    Currently I have 5 cats: 19yr male, 11yr female, and 3 six yr old kittens (2male, 1 female). We’ve had coyote/fox/dog problems so they no longer go outside on their own. Recently I’ve taken to leash training them. The two male kittens are okay at it but the older female is a pro! I take her walking to our mailbox 1/2 a mile from the house every day! She’s also pretty much a tamed feral cat. The vet was scared of her because she doesn’t talk, as in meow, like a normal cat. She communicated via rumbles, growls, purrs, and yips. She even barks at birds! She’s harmless but you wouldn’t know that by the sounds she makes!
    I had a German Shepard with my roommates in college and we’re thinking about getting one again someday soon. Absolutely love german shepards!

    I have my daughter’s cats now. She is in the Peace Corps in Moldova and could not take them. I always have pets. My favorite was my lung fish. I had two and they were so ugly they were cute. They did recognize me though.

    My favorite story is how we got our 2nd dog. We went to the Michigan Humane Society in Rochester Hills. Looked at a few and for various reasons they were not a good match. Went to look at all the available dogs and my husband says,”What about this one?” Now this dog is jumping 3 feet high and fur is flying off him! “Really?” “Let’s meet him.” So we go to the visitation room and Fozzy comes in and puts his head in my daughter’s lap, comes to me and gives kisses and then goes to my hubby and sits and puts a paw on his leg. The MHS staff member asks, “So do I take your family portrait now?” YES!!! It was the day before Thanksgiving so we could not get him the next day. On Friday we went to pick our new family member up. He comes out with the end of his tail wrapped. Every staff member went past his cage and told him he was going home today. He wagged his tail so much he turned the end bloody. So Fonzie (because he had attitude) came home with us. He spent one night in his cage and came out wagging his tail and spraying blood all over – the bandage had come off. We had to wrap his tail for over 4 months – Christmas colors, Valentine Day colors, St. Patrick’s day colors, Easter colors, and various other color combinations. Finally healed enough to go without bandages!!! In his eighth year Fonzie developed heart problems. We had his devotion and companionship for 8 more months with medication and daily shots. Fonzie was an awesome dog…threw himself against the front door if the doorbell rang and hated walks…peed and pooped on command. And loved almost every person he met. He is still missed after 3 years and another rescue dog joining our family.
