Prancie’s Prayer is a PURRfect Present!

The days are getting shorter and fireplace weather is fast approaching. Time to think about…. Christmas! 

Yeah, ugh. Already? It's not even Halloween, yet!

But what better time to take care of a few gifts on your Christmas list? I've got the PURRfect present for cat-loving youngsters! 

It's Prancie's Prayer, a new book by Ellen Pilch (better known as Sammy Pilch's mom from The book is loosely based on the true gotcha story of a cat who showed up at their home one cold winter evening, finding her furever home with a little help from above. 


It's a sweet book, full of spritely illustrations by Nicolas Peruzzo. It's the kind of children's book you'll look forward to reading to your kids over and over again. 

And, it's an effective way to teach children that cats will be cats (which includes bouts of mischieviousness), and that it is NEVER okay to turn one out in the cold. A cat is a lifetime commitment, and one which will reward you a hundredfold over the years. And hey, it's written by a member of our cat blogging community! 


There's a giveaway on Goodreads that ends Oct 29th:

Buy It!

It's available on Amazon (including a Kindle version), Barnes & Noble, and other online sellers (listed here).



THE FINE PRINT: I was given a free review copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review. It was hard not to be biased, because it featured a ginger cat who, like Reno, likes to knock stuff off onto the floor, so from that moment on, I knew I would love the book.
