Buy Books…and Help Rescue Our Cat

Jeff VanderMeer • September 30th, 2007 @ 9:34 pm • News, Uncategorized

It’s a shame that we finally have to resort to this, but we’re walling our cat Jango in behind towers of books until readers buy more from our book sale. Sure, we’ve sold almost 850 books, but hundreds remain. What else can we do?

As you can see here at the beginning of the process, Jango almost seems calm.

Then he looks to his left, sees no escape.

He looks down, sees an impossible jump that only superman could consider.

…and resumes his prior position, making a wordless appeal for help: “Buuuy booooks. Owners saaave meeeee.”

    Poor thing. He’s now been up there, behind a wall of books, for over eight hours. He’s beginning to go…insane…
