About the Author

Lauren Merryfield has a lifetime’s experience with blindness and disabilities, but she “keeps on keeping on,” as they used to say, and knows how to manage the challenges of a nondisabled world—sometimes alone, sometimes with help. She has been published in several anthologies and magazines and is also the author of “There’s More Than One Way to Love a Cat” and her articles have been published in several anthologies and in the publications of the National Federation of the Blind. Besides being an active member of the NFB, Lauren is a member of the Association for Pet Loss and Bereavement (APBL), the Cat Writers’ Association, and the Church of the Larger Fellowship (an online community of the Unitarian Universalist Association). She lives in California and has one human daughter and three feline “kids.”
