While it was enjoyable and completely fulfilling, the process for writing my most recent book, Makin’ Biscuits – Weird Cat Habits and the Even Weirder Habits of the Humans Who Love Them, turned out to be far more work than I initially anticipated.

Believe it or not, I truly believe my cats think providing me with a nonstop supply of litter gifts to scoop is quite probably the kindest thing they could do for me.
