About the Author

About the Author

Gwen Cooper is the New York Times bestselling author of the memoirs Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat and Homer: The Ninth Life of a Blind Wonder Cat; the novels Love Saves the Day and Diary of a South Beach Party Girl; and the crowd-sourced collection of "cat selfies," Kittenish (a send-up of Kim Kardashian's Selfish), 100% of the proceeds from which were donated to support animal rescue in Nepal following the 2015 earthquake. Her work has been published in nearly two-dozen languages and territories around the world. She is a frequent speaker at shelters and fundraisers, and donates 10% of her royalties from Homer's Odyssey to organizations that serve abused, abandoned, and disabled animals. Gwen lives in Manhattan with her husband, Laurence. She also lives with her two perfect cats-Clayton the Tripod and his litter-mate, Fanny-who aren't impressed with any of it.


"Whether describing Vashti bringing her a breakfast bug in bed or Scarlett crying out for her not to leave, Cooper's light and cheerful style makes it obvious that these cats are the loves of her life. Even readers with little inclination towards anthropomorphism will delight in these anecdotes of cats who seemingly have something to say about everything."


"This book perfectly encapsulates the unique and amazing experience of being owned by cats and the joy they bring into our lives. That alone is reason enough to read it."

-James Bowen, author of A Street Cat Named Bob

"Gwen Cooper is the Queen of Cat Love-and in these fun and frisky stories, she perfectly captures all the reasons felines rule our hearts and our homes. No cat lover should be without this book, but more important, give it to the folks who haven't yet seen the light. At least they'll understand us better!"

-Sy Montgomery, author of How to Be a Good Creature: A Memoir in Thirteen Animals

"One of the great pleasures of life is watching cat videos on the internet. They are irresistible. Good news: Gwen Cooper's new book is exactly like a cat video. What a pleasure to read her beautiful stories, brimming with her cat-love and even more important her ability to get you to actually see her cats. Like the videos, you will want to see more and more. She can become your next obsession, as she has become mine!"

-Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, international bestselling author of The Nine Emotional Lives of Cats

"An elegant, incisive account of love, laughter, and the deep meaning and magic cats add to our lives."

-Britt Collins, author of Strays: A Lost Cat, a Homeless Man, and Their Journey Across America
