You are going to be so jealous

I got a package at work today. Here is what I found inside:






What is this beautiful medallion? Why it's the Cat Writer's Association Muse Medallion, of course. You probably didn't know that there was such a thing as a Cat Writer's Associaion. It's OK, I didn't either. In fact, the technicians went skipping over to a computer to figure out what this accolade was for and if they sent it to me by mistake.


VIII.3 – Color Photograph (single)
Judge’s comment: “It told a story. The image stayed with me for days. Adorable! Intriguing lighting. It’s so uniquely the essence of kitten.”
Winner:
Dr. Monica Shepherd, “Frankie Meets Her Shadow” Our Animals



The website explained it all. I won this award for a photo I took of our foster kitten, Frankie. She was playing with her newly discovered shadow on Christmas day 2008 and I caught the whole thing on film. The photo appeared in the magazine that my organization publishes as part of a larger story. Unfortunately, that article isn't available online. For your enjoyment, here is the winning photo:
