When kids at school acted like she didn't exist, Butterscotch always patiently listened, his green eyes wide, his tail twitching.

This is a story about the small, furry things that made a life worth living.
Everybody Loves Pussy: A Lifelong Love Affair With Cats, a novel that Daniel Friedman isn't writing, is not coming soon to a bookstore near you.
