How to Make Your Cat an Internet Celebrity: Book Review

How to Make Your Cat an Internet Celebrity.  Something that is happening A LOT these days.  Grumpy Cat, Nyan Cat, Keyboard Cat, and one of my favorites {well they ALL are} Surprised Cat.  So can this book make MY cat an internet celebrity?! Patricia Carlin maps out all the steps needed to send your cat into internet celebrity, so let's give it a go!

*Step one catchy cat persona:  First I needed to figure out what special gifts my cat had to offer the universe.  Turns out, he is pretty boring and does whatever he wants.  So then Boring Cat was born!

Catchy name in place, it's time to get down to business and capture Boring Cat being boring.

*Step two photos:  I am always taking pictures of Boring Cat.  He is very photogenic. So this part was super easy!  Make sure you share your cute cat photos through all of your social media outlets {more on that below}.

*Step three awesome videos:  I tried to make a video of "Boring Cat" but he is pretty boring.  So enjoy his boring encounter with a Trader Joe's bag.

Step four social media:  Time to get your client out there and with social media! Create their account and watch their fan base grow!  Check out @The_Boring_Cat antics over on Twitter!  Other cat friendly sites:
*Instagram with the hashtag #CatsofInstagram
So how did it work out after a week?!
Followers on Twitter: 26
Followers on Instagram: 47
Likes on Instagram: 645!  I thought that was pretty good!
On our first day of Tweeting for Boring Cat, Quirk Books asked to use our picture on their site!  Stardom is on the horizon!

Pick up YOUR copy of How to Make Your Cat an Internet Celebrity: A Guide to Financial Freedom by Patricia Carlin with adorable cat photography by Dustin Fenstermacher from Quirk Books on April 1st {this is not a joke!}
