Overview

Can work, family life, and sanity itself survive a three-legged cat’s one-track obsession? 

Clayton “the Tripod” is a special-needs rescue who quickly established himself as king of the house—a “loveable doofus” and natural clown with a heart big enough for ten cats. The day he teaches himself to play fetch, however, Clayton transforms from loving lap cat to ruthless slave driver, demanding round-the-clock games of toss/retrieve/repeat from his hapless human mom. He interrupts her work, her sleep, even her alone time with her husband. But how can any loving (if exhausted!) cat parent look into an adorable feline’s big hopeful eyes and say no? 

From the Curl Up with a Cat Tale series of true-life short stories from Gwen Cooper—bestselling author of the smash hit Homer’s Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale—“Stop Trying to Make Fetch Happen” is full of Gwen’s trademark humor and heart. It’s a tale sure to resonate with animal lovers everywhere.

About the Author

Gwen Cooper is the New York Times bestselling author of the memoirs Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat and Homer: The Ninth Life of a Blind Wonder Cat; the novels Love Saves the Day and Diary of a South Beach Party Girl; and the crowd-sourced collection of “cat selfies,” Kittenish (a send-up of Kim Kardashian’s Selfish), 100% of the proceeds from which were donated to support animal rescue in Nepal following the 2015 earthquake. Her work has been published in nearly two-dozen languages and territories around the world.  She is a frequent speaker at shelters and fundraisers, and donates 10% of her royalties from Homer's Odyssey to organizations that serve abused, abandoned, and disabled animals. Gwen lives in Manhattan with her husband, Laurence. She also lives with her two perfect cats—Clayton the Tripod and his litter-mate, Fanny—who aren't impressed with any of it.
