A Kitten's Quest

We are Cees and Madison - and of course there is the real star of the show, our kitty VLADIMIR KITTEN!

In 2016 our kitten took us on an incredible adventure to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the National Park Service. On that trip we made it to all 59 National Parks! It was quite the loop!

Our National Parks really are the most beautiful places in the world. They house our nations greatest natural treasures and protect what we hold most dear. They provide opportunity for people to connect with their earth, with wildlife, and of course with themselves.

We want children to be able to grasp the importance, the beauty, and the uniqueness of our national parks - because after all, it will be them who will protect our public lands in the future. If we want these lands to be around forever, we need to instill a love for them at a young age. And what better way than through a story!?

We worked hard to write the story in a fun, easy to follow way. And we teamed up with our friend and super talented illustrator, Noh A, to make the pictures come to life. We are SO happy with how the first part of the book has come out - she has taken the time to really capture the details of our trip, and put them down on the pages of this children’s book.  We already have half of the illustrations done!  Once the project is funded we will be able to crank out the rest of them and send it off to the printer!

Kids are able to relate to little pets as their world is expanded through illustration and beautiful words. They will have these magical places in the back of their minds, and when they grow up, and are able to experience them first hand, they will already have a love deep down in their subconscious.

We will be running the story through a few more edits, but for the most part, it is done. We are committed to getting the rest of the illustrations finished, and getting the book to print in time for this holiday season. There are some GREAT stocking stuffer rewards in here! Be sure to check them all out!

Trust for Public Lands

Additionally, as an effort to give back to the places that gave us so much, we will be donating a portion of all book proceeds to the Trust for Public Lands. They are a devoted group of people that care about our planet and are fighting to preserve our public lands.

Reward Options

Along with the DIGITAL and PRINT VERSIONS of the book, we are offering a few different rewards.  

We are offering the Fancy Vladimir by our friend as a canvas print. Can't you just imagine this in your cat-themed bathroom?!  It would be purrrrfect.

And then for the true adventure cat owners - the C A T A G O N I A Decal is a MUST.  It's a perfect little stocking stuffer as well!

Thank you so much for supporting us in our effort to help children fall in love with their National Parks.  We love these public lands, and we want the next generations to love them to!

Risks and challenges

We are really hoping to get everything finished and delivered by the 2018 holiday season. But we see that possible delays and hangups in both production and shipping logistics could delay that delivery.

We have half of our illustrations done and an illustrator that is committed to getting the rest of them done by December.

We are committed to work through these issues and get these products out for people's holiday gifts.
