    I love the Winston & Ruby stories. I was so excited to buy your new one “Un-Familiar” and now I find this! Maybe someday Winston & Ruby could get a novel of their own?

    Thank you so much for this lovely gift of a story. Today I had to have one of my cats put down. He’d been with me since kittenhood…sixteen years together. Cancer of the thyroid. I came home in tears and my daughter made me tea. Then she reminded me I always look forward to your Monday stories. I didn’t think anything would help. I was wrong.

    Thank you so much.
