Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

In the Nip of Time: A Publishing Caper


Harrummppff…is seems I ought to be able to do more than just pace the floor in my steampunk workshop, don’t you think?

My pal Nissy has his rescue story published in the new book Rescued: The Stories of 12 Cats, Through Their Eyes and all the copies sold in April, 2015 will have a portion of the price donated to one of Nissy’s favorite cat rescues…Anjellicle Cat Rescue in New York City.

There just has to be a way I can help him make his April copies be so special and intriguing that no one, whether cats, dogs, or humans, can pass up buying a kabillion copies.

Maybe if I stop pacing and sit in front of my invention chemicals I will get a great big old brainstorm! Oh my cat! *slaps paw to forehead* how could I have forgotten? I’ll put on my Big Furry Bright Idea helmet! It never fails to get my lightning fast mind moving at blistering speed.

savvy eureka 02 final final

I knew if I could only stop and think I would have a brilliant idea!! Yes, get Rescued published during the month of April on paper made from CATNIP!!!

*clapping paws together*

Nissy is gonna totally luvluvluv this idea. First though, I had best make sure I can create paper made from catnip and then I need to devise a proper manufacturing machine to make the paper.

Alrighty then, let’s crank this baby up and see what it can do. Hope it can at least produce paper.

Now let me see…*clink, tink*…there. That should do it. I needed to adjust the production equipment to take thicker paper. I know the Necata Paparus will be thicker ‘cuz of the teeny chunks of catnip in it.

*whirr, bzzzzz, zap!*

final necata paparus

Whoa, look at that paper come flyin’ out of that machine. Now I simply MUST get Silver a message. Let’s see, where did I put that toaster message sender??? Oh, here it is. I am gonna need Silver’s skills at computers and whatnot and he needs to broach the subject with Nissy.

toaster msg FINAL

I don’t have time to explain all this to Nissy because he just gets too excited anytime, anywhere the ‘nip’ is mentioned. I need to spend my time producing more sheets of this Necata Paparus.


Message From Silver: A-OK. I am on it!!

Hey! That was fast. Silver must have been sitting on his toaster keeping his butt warm or something.

Great Silver, I am purring like crazy you like my idea to sell more copies of Rescued in April for Nissy and Anjellicle Cats Rescue. Pawsome!

*mumbles to herself* I sure do hope Silver can keep Nissy calm enough to explain the whole idea before Nissy starts his droolin’ just thinking about nip. What a Nip Head he is…sigh.

Ok my sweet little machine and Necata Paparus…let’s get ready to make history with Nerissa’s April run of Rescued!

 Be sure to visit my pal SILVER, Dash Kitten, for Tuesday’s installment and the conclusion will air on our buddy Nerrisa’s blog Wednesday!!

    I bought the book in April so Nissy’s cause of choice gets the donation 🙂 I am rationing myself to one story a day- I hope a sequel is in the works.

  21. Nip paper? Best. Idea. EVER! Yes, indeed. That’s one we can get behind! 🙂

  22. We sure hope Nissy gets a lot of money for his shelter.

    Necata Paparus! Genius!!

  23. Linda Szymoniak on said:

    Oh, I’d love to win!

  24. Paper made of catnip? Pawsome! Only problem is the paper will get all wet from us licking it. 🙂

  25. Heh heh. Paper made of catnip. You know everybuddy is always dumping on NYC for euthanizing pets. Do you know New York City has the lowest euthanasia per capita for any major U.S. city? There’s still too many but the Mayor’s Alliance is trying.

  30. Paper with nip in it, my Sanctuary will be a mad house. I was gonna read the book to the cats here, maybe they will want to read it themselves this way. Group stuff is so much fun though. I am liking your idea of production though and I am sure the cats will too.

  31. I can just see it…. cats reading the book everywhere. They’ll whip (or should we say drip) through the book in no time… Talk about devouring a book cover to cover. Nip paper it is! Woohoo!

    Nissy (Also known as the resident nip head. MOUSES!)

  33. Oh my goodness, such fun!!! I will pass on the giveaway though since I already have that wonderful book!

  34. Will the paper be dribble proof too? We’ll need extra strong dribbleproofiness here!
    The REAL Maple Syrup Mob xxxxx

  35. Savvy leave it to you to come up with nip paper! Sounds delicious and very practical at the same time! BRAVO…… this adventure is exciting – can’t wait to hear more… the meantime, we’d love to be in the drawing for a copy of RESCUED!

    Hugs, Sammy

  36. mariodacat on said:
