***** NEWSFLASH: Urban Tigers Two, More Tales Of A Cat Vet will be available in July, 2013! *****
Kathy Chisholm is an award-winning author for her novel Urban Tigers, Tales of a Cat Vet and short story Seen But Not Heard. In 1987, she and her husband, veterinarian Hugh Chisholm, established one of the first feline-only practices in Canada. They live in Nova Scotia, Canada with five cats (including the world-famous Tuxedo Stan), two dogs, two guinea pigs and a fluctuating number of fish. Kathy is currently completing the finishing touches on Urban Tigers 2 - More Tales of a Cat Vet, due to be released in the spring of 2013.
Urban Tigers, Tales of a Cat Vet is a gentle, humourous, heart-warming account of Dr. Emily McBride’s first year at Ocean View Cat Hospital under the guidance of the flamboyant Dr. Hughie Doucette. While he is regarded by his devoted clients as The Cat Messiah, Emily is at first known only as “that girl”. But her sense of humour and dedication soon earn her a loyal clientele; Herbert Grant, retired history professor and cat devotee whose cherished felines drink only bottled water and sniff organically-grown catnip, Mrs. Eunice Dalrymple, self-proclaimed cat psychic and, of course, Titus Tid the Third from Tidsville, a smug Persian with a peculiar affliction. The very real characters and their beloved pets enrich Emily’s life in unexpected ways. Drawn from her own experiences in a feline practice, Chisholm’s Urban Tigers is a poignant reminder that loves comes in all shapes and sizes. If you have ever cared for a pet, or the owner of a pet, this is the book for you.
