From the Back Cover:

“And you thought cat ladies were crazy and hopelessly unhip: Like the untamed creatures they adore, they can also be rock-chick-cool. Nina Malkin proves it, smashing tired stereotypes with her seriously funny, on-target memoir of rescue and redemption. I loved this book from head to tail.”
?Julia Szabo, Pet-Reporter.com
“Kudos to Ms. Malkin for by-passing those overworked villain-victim clichés in favor of a delightful albeit necessarily bittersweet celebration of this most challenging and special human-animal relationship.”
?Myrna Milani, DVM
“This sprightly tale will please cat lovers everywhere, and maybe even convert a few dog lovers along the way.”
?Publisher’s Weekly
