deborah barnes and karen nicholsWith Deborah Barnes (photo with Karen Nichols, left), it was love at first sight. I met her face-2-face at BlogPaws after a year or so of online interaction and it she was everything I’d hoped she would be: a loon-crazy cat lady who was a vision in leopard print. We shared an affinity for novelty cat glasses and hit it off immediately. We each had an identical pair of cat shades, in fact — hers were black, mine pink.

I’d been waiting months to finally get my hands on her book, The Chronicles of Zee & Zoey – A Journey of the Extraordinarily Ordinary.

Zee and Zoey’s story is certainly a cat tale, but it’s also the enchanting, engaging story of a cat woman whose life (and the lives of those she loves) is transformed through her relationship with her cats. No biggie there; we’ve all been through it. But Debra’s cats, Zee and Zoey share a mystical bond that suggests they’d been together in previous lives. Zee, the king of the house, is a stately, mellow Maine Coon cat. Zoey is a playful, smart, active Bengal cat who turns Zee’s life upside down. And yes, there are kittens involved.

It’s an elegant dream of a book, impeccably designed with gorgeous photography and lush illustrations. It’s a feast for the eyes. And the soul.

There’s not a cat lady (or cat guy) alive who won’t identify with the story, replete with job loss and love and yes, lots of cats. I went back and forth as I read it trying to identify its niche: was it a cat story, or a cat lady’s memoir? It doesn’t matter. You won’t be able to put it down.
