Kitty Karma Indiegogo campaign launches for cat book
Book sales will fund shelters for abandoned, unwanted felines in need
Kitty Karma Books is currently running a crowdfunding campaign to help cover publishing and production costs of Kitty Karma: Big Stories of Small Cats Who Change Our Lives. That’s so that all net proceeds from the sale of the book can be directed to fund three cat shelters who feed, house and provide medical and desexing care for felines in need.
“I started Kitty Karma Books to honor my cat, Kealani, who died right in front of me,” says Wai-Lin Terry, founder and publisher of Kitty Karma Books. “Kitty Karma has grown into a force for doing good, designed to help elevate the quality of life of cats around the world, several kitties at a time.”
Toronto-based Kitty Karma Books’ mission is to elevate the lives of abandoned, unwanted and disabled cats and kittens. With help from the global cat-loving community, Kitty Karma Books aims to honour all cats and elevate the welfare and life of cats in need.
The book will be published and available for sale in November. All net proceeds from book sales will be donated to support three incredible cat shelter charities – Il Gattaro D’aleppo in Syria, Abay Kitties of Hawaii, and Whangamata CAT in New Zealand.
Kitty Karma: Big Stories of Small Cats Who Change Our Lives is a heart-warming and heart-rending collection of stories that unveils a world of cats rarely seen and rarely known. It features tales of adventure cats and feral cats; cats who are sailing on high seas off the coasts of New Zealand and Mexico; and a cat sanctuary located in a war zone. Readers will learn about a popular cat café in Ontario, Canada as well the first cat café in India. The book’s remarkable editorial contributors are united by one simple thing: a fierce and passionate love for cats.
“Our authors come from around the world and include award-winning writers, animal communicators, rescue workers, and amazing parents,” says Terry, a former top Wall Street executive and volunteer at Toronto Cat Rescue. “All of them have donated their stories for free because they care deeply about the cause.”
- Siglinda Scarpa: An Italian artist and animal rights activist founder and primary benefactor for cat sanctuary The Goathouse Refuge in Pittsboro, North Carolina.
- Alessandra Abidin: A Lebanese-born violinist with degrees in political science and international relations, who works in Switzerland and other countries in the field of immigration and war crimes.
- Lori Ostlund and Anne Raeff. The only writing couple to have individually won the Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction.
“I believe that cats bless us when they favour us with their attention and the world is a better place when there is a cat at home and cat fur on our clothes,” concluded Terry. “The width, depth and breadth of joy a cat can bring into our lives is without measure.”
