Picture a perfectly sane couple – He's a writer, She's a teacher,

Both are happily pet less until a charismatic cat named Clem admits himself into their house.

Before they know it, they’ve adopted a girl cat, Zoe, to keep Clem company.

And the mayhem is just beginning.

Next there’s little Banjo of the irresistible emerald eyes.

Followed by growing-bigger-by-the-minute Buster.

And the kitties keep on coming!

“ONLY CRAZY PEOPLE HAVE FIVE CATS” is a humorous pet memoir that uses actual photographs to tell the story of how a sensible husband and wife fall under the mind-robbing spell of feline-in-ity, and end up adopting five irresistible cats.

Editorial Reviews

David Jordan Williams
There are countless photo books about cats, but this is the only one I’ve seen that captures the “feel” of a quintet of them delightfully taking over a pet less home. Full of heart and humor, “ONLY CRAZY PEOPLE HAVE FIVE CATS” raises the ageless question of “How many cats per household are enough?” Beware, dear Reader, this book may change your mind!
