    My Very Good, Very Bad Cat with Chicken Soup Publisher, Amy Newmark

    in Moms and Family

    Sometimes you can choose your family… by choosing to love a cat. But just because they’re animals it doesn't mean they won't be as complex and individual as anyone else around. Our cats can be so good, and then they can be not-so-good, but boy do they give us great stories! 


    Chicken Soup for the Soul latest edition, My Very Good, Very Bad Cat, is a collection of 101 funny, heartwarming, and sometimes mind-boggling stories about all the very good, very bad, simply amazing things our cats do. Royalties from the book will be donated to the American Humane Association.


    Join Amy Newmark, the publisher and editor-in-chief for Chicken Soup and me on Tuesday, January 26, 10-11 A.M. CT US. We will be discussing heartwarming, humorous and completely true stories about our feline friends that are sure to touch every cat lover's soul. Perfect for every cat’s person.
