GalleyCat readers around the globe have joined our annual Pet Parade, sending photos of their literary pets.
Author Joanne Levy shared a picture of her real life Galley Cat: “Recently, I got a copy of Caroline Starr Rose’s MAY B., which my cat Chester did not want to give up. I forced the issue and was finally able to read the book, but not before it received a lot of kitty love (well deserved – the book is awesome!).”
More photos follow below–we will collect all the entries at this link.
“Oh, hai, my name is Angela Dah-ling. My human, author Allia Zobel Nolan, wants me to wish you all a healthy and happy New Year. For this, I’m promised warm cream and tuna. So considered yourself wished.”
Sylvia Frezzolini (Book Designer) and John B. Severance (Author) wote: “Sophie (our muse) is worried that she hasn’t been a good dog this year.”

Reader Steve Duno wrote: “My dog Lou is a real life Rin Tin Tin. Lou caught robbers and rapists, saved my life several times, helped teach sign language to kids, worked as a therapy dog, and helped to save the lives of hundreds of aggressive dogs. Along literate lines, he had a vocabulary of 150+ words, and knew sign language.”
