Upcoming Works

The updated and expanded edition of THINK LIKE A CAT will be released on September 27, 2011 by Penguin Books.

There's also an interesting little detour I made in my cat behavior profession... or maybe you could call it a moment of temporary insanity. I co-wrote a book called COOKIES FOR DINNER (White River Press) where I spill the beans about my shortcomings as a mom. I may be an expert in the world of cats but in the world of kids...not so much. COOKIES FOR DINNER will be released July 21 and then the whole world will know what my family has tried to keep secret for the past years.
