From a Fan

Cherokitty and Sammie.

A couple of days ago I received the nicest email from a fan of Mighty Little Man.  She was delighted to get her copy of Mighty Little Man and took these pics of her cats Cherokitty and Sammie using the book as a pillow.  The pics were taken the day she got the book.

It was a lengthy email, put a true pleasure to read.  She shared a few of her own cat stories, about how she came to meet and marry her husband after discovering he was also a cat person (that meant he was a keeper).  She went on to describe how she loved and lost fur-babies and how she and one of her cats starred in a play called, “Visit to a Small Planet.”  Way cool!

As I read her email I was amazed at how much alike cat people really are — and emails like hers are one of the best reasons for writing a cat book in the first place.  Things like this make all the effort of writing, tweaking, researching, publishing, and promoting a book completely worthwhile.

She made my day.  Thank you, Caryl N.!  🙂

It’s “the Little Man guy!”


Little Man Cuddling

I had to take Little Man up to Franklin, TN, for some tests.  A few minutes behind me was a couple with their own cat.  They were apparently there for the same reason.  Within minutes, however, we discovered that not only were we all from Alabama, we were all clients of Catisfaction Cat Clinic AND Dr. Gandy.  In no time at all we felt like fast friends.

Of course, the inevitable happened while we waited for our cats to be called:  we whipped out our phones and shared pictures of our “babies.”  The pic above of Little Man snuggling next to me in our recliner is one of the ones I shared.  We chatted and shared stories for a while, and then the woman said, “Oh!  You’re the Little Man guy!”  She recognized me and Little Man’s name from the poster in the reception area at Catisfaction.  That cracked me up!  I’ve been called lots of things, many I can’t publish here, but never “the Little Man guy.”  She also bought a copy of Little Man’s book.

So now I have another nickname … and I’m happy to wear that title!
