Cat Treat Monday: Author Tori Scott and Blue

It's Monday morning! If you're anything like me, you need a treat. Our cat treat today is a gorgeous canine and his Mom. Take it away, my friends.

Hi! My name is Blue, and I'm a Blue Heeler owned by Tori Scott. My mom found me at a flea market when I was only four weeks old. She was so appalled that someone would try to sell a four week old puppy that she bought me and took me home with her. I've repaid her kindness many times over by protecting her and the rest of her pack, by getting so excited when she comes home that I fall all over myself trying to knock her down so I can lick her face, and by crowding her feet so I can lay under her desk when she writes (you never know when that computer might try to get her.) 

Confucius Cat note: I think the same thing about my mummy's computer. My protection method is laying on top of the keyboard. Give it a try.

I'm almost 13 years old now, but I still let strangers know they aren't welcome until Mom says they are, and I'm protecting a new generation of pups she calls grandkids. I very nearly gave my life once to protect her two youngest kids, so I'm treated like royalty and allowed to sleep by Mom's bed at night, and I follow her everywhere she goes. And best of all, she wrote a book about me that will be released in a month or so, called Blame it
on Texas. Okay, it may not be about me, exactly, but I'm in it and so is my heroic protection story; fictionalized, of course. 

While you're waiting for that one to come out, be sure to read Lone Star Justice which is set in our little country town in East Texas.

Lone Star Justice

Description of Lone Justice: Judge Madelyn Cooper never shows signs of weakness, but when a killer threatens her daughter's life, Maddie does what any mother would do.
Run to the place where her daughter will be safe. That place is Greendale, Texas. Maddie left Greendale fourteen years earlier, pregnant, broke, and without saying a word to Rand McCade. What could she say after her father killed his parents?

Rand McCade is determined to keep Greendale safe. As Sheriff, he
promised there would be no repeat of the horrible day when his parents
were murdered. Now Maddie is back, bringing trouble with
her once again. And this time, she has a daughter. His daughter.

As a psychopath sets his sights on Maddie, Rand and Maddie must figure
out who is after her, and why, before someone else ends up dead.

I'm definitely going to be on looking for you in Blame it on Texas and Lone Star Justice sounds exciting. Thanks so much my friends for sharing your story.

Blue, you are a handsome dog. I was on edge reading about your heroics. As a cat I am not as heroic but I do keep the home mouse free.

love CC kitty
