Our good feline friend, Hank, the Maine Coon running for a Senate seat in Virginia, has sent us an update and an invitation:
“I’m beyond excited to announce our biggest campaign event yet! On September 22nd, I will be teaming up with Gwen Cooper, New York Times Bestselling Author of "Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale" at a very special meeting in Springfield, VA. Gwen has endorsed me for U.S. Senate, and will be appearing with me from 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at Felix & Oscar Pet Food Naturally in Springfield, VA, to read from her newest novel, titled "Love Saves the Day," which will be released to the public in January 2013.”
About “Love Saves the Day”
Humans best understand the truth of things if they come at it indirectly. Like how sometimes the best way to catch a mouse that’s right in front of you is to back up before you pounce...
So notes Prudence, the irresistible brown tabby at the center of Gwen Cooper’s tender, joyful, utterly unforgettable novel, “Love Saves the Day,” which is mostly told through the eyes of this curious (and occasionally cranky) feline.
Gwen Cooper and Homer
From Gwen Cooper:
"Homer and I are proud to stand by Hank," said Cooper. "Everyone who throws their hat into the political ring seeks to lead, but almost none know how to lead by example the way Hank (and his staff) do. Every single dollar raised at this event will go directly toward improving someone's life. Which of the other candidates can make a similar claim?"
At press time, Homer was unavailable for comment due to extreme interest in a tuna sandwich.
More on the pawsitively fun event:
Gwen will also be signing books, and posing for photos with Homer as well. They’re going all out for this big event, featuring exclusive Hank for Senate Bookmarks, raffles of many various Hank goodies, yard signs, and much more. Hank has also secured a deal to offer "Homer's Odyssey" at a special price, with all of the profits donated to charity. This event will feature both Animal Allies and the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.
With less than 60 days left until the election, Hank’s campaign is running into the home stretch. Hank is proud to announce that his team has raised more than $12,000 for animal charities - with none of his campaign funds spent on negative attack ads lambasting Hank’s political opponents. In fact, according to Hank's campaign staff, a representative from George Allen’s campaign complimented Hank and his campaign team on their efforts to help others rather than fill the kitty’s campaign coffers!
If you haven’t read “Homer’s Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale,” get your claws on one today. A future Mews of the Day will feature Homer and his fearless cat parent, Gwen, along with a preview of her new book, “Love Saves the Day.”
Make sure to visit Hank’s website at HankforSenate.com and follow his pawsitively positive campaign.
