Kat’s Cats

Home Kat’s Cats

kittens_on_pinkHi, my name is Kat and I’m an author of children’s fiction. I’m also wild about animals – wild or tame, on the farm or flying – you name it.  Growing up, my family adopted many pets. From cats and dogs, to birds and horses, and even a wolf named Buck, a tortoise named Aristotle, and our ADORABLE rat, Ratty Rascal. Over the years, I’ve had many amazing connections with my animal friends; more than a few have looked in my eyes and sent a “thank you” straight to my heart.

kimbaliz_on_postYou might have guessed that my favorite television shows are PBS’ Animal Odd Couples, Nature and Earth: A New Wild.

I’d also like to introduce you to my two adopted cats. They are sisters, but you’d never know it. One is black and white and clowns around like a court jester. The other is pure white and regal as a queen.

They’re more like a mix between a cat and a dog. They go on walks with me, even on a sandy beach, and come when I call. They also like car rides, hotel stays, and family visits, as well as flirting with new people. And like all animals, they adore affection.




I call them “synchronized kitties” because they often lay in the exact same position, but inside-out – like the Yin Yang symbol.



Mainly though, I call them “The Munchies” because they nibble on people’s shirts when “kneadin’ ‘n makin’ bread.”

A beautiful story and so well-written! It is perfect for some of my grandchildren (in the 10-12 age group) who will be receiving it as one of their Christmas gifts this year.

I’m so happy to hear, Jerra Lynne! In case your grandchildren would prefer a print version, I’m shooting to offer a paperback option on Amazon before Christmas. Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog, and leaving such a nice review as well. Means the world to me. Hugs, Kat

Just finished reading this wonderfully delightful story. Now and then I read “kids” books as they are more of alight reading and have great characters and endings. Thank you for this story.
