Roxy is going to be famous in 2008.

This Kansas City kitty is featured in “The 365 Kittens-A-Year Calendar 2008,” a picture-a-day wall calendar. Workman, which publishes the calendar, had a “Kittens of Distinction” photo contest to find cats for its pages.

Teede Stipich of Kansas City sent in photos of her black cat Roxy, 1. To understand how Roxy came to her home, you have to start with another black cat named Derby that Stipich adopted three years ago.

“After one year, I engaged a pet psychic to speak to him about a companion,” Stipich said.

So she adopted Roxy from Purrfect Pets no-kill shelter in November 2006.

“I have only adopted black cats because of their beauty and mystery,” she said.
