Saucy and Cirrus are like the behind-the-scenes mascots of this Pets with MAR series. More often than not, they kept Fiction Editor Laura Maylene Walter company as she sat at her desk posting pet photos. They’d nap nearby, meow for food, or even trot back and forth across the keyboard.

Laura is moving on from her fiction editor and blog editor positions, but she could think of no better sendoff than to post her own cats posing with the issues of MAR she worked on:


Saucy sits pretty in front of two years of MAR issues.


Cirrus loves MAR. And also laser pens, belly rubs, and hoarding Q-tips.


Cirrus and Saucy prove that MAR is the perfect lazy day read.

It’s been fun, everyone. But don’t worry, this blog isn’t going anywhere. Stay tuned to this space for more MAR magic!
