    Works

    • The Cat Who Came for Christmas
    • First published in paperback by Penguin in 1988, The Cat Who Came for Christmas captured the #1 position on the New York Times bestseller list that year for twelve weeks, and, since its hardcover publication, has leaped onto the list an extraordinary five times.
    • The Best Cat Ever
    • Picking up where "The Cat Who Came for Christmas" and "The Cat and the Curmudgeon" left off, this beautiful new paperback edition continues the story of the cat named Polar Bear and his grumpy, lovable owner.
    • Cat Who Came for Christmas
    • It is fitting that the founder and head of the Fund for Animals personally rescues and takes in strays, and one incident proved to have a profound effect on him.
