homersnowcropped23.jpgJust a few hours away from the Christmas holiday, and GalleyCat readers are still sending in loads of pet pictures.

Author Gwen Cooper contributed this picture, the star of her bestselling book, “Homer’s Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned about Love and Life With a Blind Wonder Cat”–all decked out for the holidays.”

Welcome to GalleyCat’s annual literary pet parade, a publishing holiday tradition established by former senior editor Ron Hogan during his four-year tenure at this blog. For a few crazy days, GalleyCat readers and their pets rule the blog. Follow this link to read more about the annual photo spread and find out where our former senior editor is headed next.


Reader and author Allia Zobel Nolan sent in two pictures of her cats. She introduced them in her email: “The white cat is Angela, who lives up to her name, and loves Christmas, is catching rays under the Christmas tree. The black cat is MacDuff, who is a whopping 23-pounder (he’s not fat…just big-boned), and an expert at kung-fu, is keeping watch over the Baby Jesus.”
