Guinness The Kitty

MY Story

From the desk of Guinness

All I can say is “Wow.”

When Kathy started writing my story, I never thought anything would come of it.

But Jade captured my handsome side (I think I look like Chris Hemsworth).

Now, the book has arrived, and here we are, bumpin’ paws in cyberspace!

Many hearty thank-yous — for visiting my website and for your interest in my story.

(Can you believe they stuck me on page 2 of this website?? I gotta get a better agent.)

If you’re a human, I’d love to keep in touch and hear about the Forever Friends that you’ve adopted.

And keep you up to date on the progress of my book.

Please leave your info on the contact page, or hit me on your fav social platform.

Yours in coolness, 



P.S. When you buy my book, don’t forget that the proceeds will help other cats like me to find their Forever Families!


“What happens to a cat that lives on the street, gets adopted, and then loses his family? Is it all over or could there be another chance? Guinness’s story of longing and loss becomes the tale of ‘one lucky cat’ as barriers of time, space, and rowdy dogs prove no match for the power of enduring family bonds. Warmhearted illustrations highlight the connections that will link Guinness to his family forever.”
