Coated With Fur: A Blind Cat’s Love

This afternoon I finished writing the first draft of Coated With Fur: A Blind Cat’s Love!  It covers part of the second year of my Minnesota clinic.  Thank you to the fans who waited since Coated With Fur: A Vet’s Life was published in 2010.  Cancer set me back for longer than expected but it did not win!  I now feel great and am actively back in clinics, speaking and am so grateful to be back writing.  Hopefully, you find the wait for this second book in the series to be well rewarded.

Publication will take place in 2013 but is still months away.  If you are a fan and want to receive an e-mail notification with information on the launch date and party, please write me at

Media and blogger inquiries to receive an advance review copy of the manuscript should also contact me at that e-mail address.  Advance copies will be made available through e-format.
