Today’s a very special day for me because it’s the day that Purr is published in the US and Canada. As you can see from the photo, my tortoiseshell cat Melina approves.

Purr is available from all good bookstores, including your local indie (Indiebound). 

If you're in Canada, signed copies are available from Black Bond Books with this link: (and also of Wag:

Purr is cat-centered, so much that it feels like a very smart cat wrote it

Of course Purr is also available from Chapters/Indigo  Bookshop  Barnes & Noble  Amazon  Blackwells  Waterstones   Booktopia   and all places books are sold.

Like Wag, Purr is based on science and full of tips to help you with your cat, as well as stories about my own cats, Melina and Harley. I hope you enjoy it!

Purr covers all the essentials to ensure we are raising our cats right

If you’re in the UK, you have to wait until the pub date of May 26th, but you can preorder now (and this is recommended – supply chain issues are affecting publishing like everything else). 

If you order or pre-order Purr by May 27th, you can get my free course with five fun activities to do with your cat. 

I am so grateful to all of you for your support of both Purr and Wag. Thank you!
