It’s Day 7 of Picture Book Idea Month (PiBoIdMo). Coordinated by Tara Lazar, this annual event asks writers to set a goal of coming up with 30 picture book ideas during the 30 days of November.
PICTURE BOOK IDEA #7: What about a cat rescue story? The last four cats we’ve owned have all come from shelters. How about a little girl who visits a shelter and finds a new feline friend? Perhaps it’s one that is less than perfect. When we took Stubby home, the shelter told us she had been there for months and they were worried about her future. She was only a little over a year old, but she sneezed a lot. She ended up having a chronic upper respiratory condition that required medication. We were grateful to have her with us for eight years before she passed away a few months ago from cancer. I thought this might be a nice tribute.
