Howl-In Successful. Author Comes to Negotiating Table

August 7

Author Prepares for Negotiations
Hadleyville, U.S.A. (AP)-- In a surprise move, author, C. Lee McKenzie offered to come to the table and negotiate terms with the Federation of Feline Familiars. (Follow previous stories leading to this latest development. August 3 August 6)

Townspeople are now bracing themselves for protracted negotiations between the two sides and hoping that the conflict can be resolved peaceably.

When the leader of the Alliance of Alligators was interviewed, he stated "The Ornofree alligators want the two parties to come to an amicable agreement; however, should the author succumb to the feline demand for a rewrite and a replacement of alligators in the leading role of this story, she should be prepared for a law suit. We've already made our position very clear and Ms. McKenzie knows we are firm in our stance on this matter. We have 65 million years of endurance to call upon. And thick hides."



Cenozo Gator, tribal leader,  certain McKenzie won't buckle.

The Federation of Feline Familiars claim that Alligators Overhead threatens a way of life for future generations of cats. "We cannot allow our jobs to go away, and that is exactly what will happen if we allow this crack in the door."


Federation of Feline Familiars bring out youngster to add clout to their demands. 
C. Lee McKenzie is now in seclusion; however she has promised a few interviews in the near future. "I'm in shock," she told reporters today. "Cats on one side. Alligators on the other. I hope you'll understand my need for privacy at this time.

  4. Dogs know they're man's best friend so they're not worried. I spoke to my cats about the situation and they say, "meh, let the alligators have their day; it's probably the only one they'll get, hehehe."

    as an aside, when is Alligators Overhead due out? I'd like to put a link on my sidebar :)
