Sierra Koester of +Fur Everywhere recently approached me to ask if she could review Purr Prints of the Heart. I said yes without realizing she and I had a shared connection – she had to say goodbye to her beloved Jewel on August 28, 2014 and I had to say goodbye to Jazz on August 28, 2013. The book had a profound effect on her – please stop by to read her review as well as to find out how buying Purr Prints anytime in the month of August can help the cats of Cat Care Society  - a shelter that is near and dear to Sierra’s heart.  
 
I highly recommend Purr Prints of the Heart to all #cat  lovers! Please check out our #review  today.

Happy moment - seeing the article you wrote for the print publication, Kittens 101 (2016 edition), at the checkout stand at Pet Supermarket! You know I am all about the multi-cat household and in this article entitled “New Kitty on the Block,” I share some tips on how to how to keep the peace when introducing a new kitten into a multi-cat household. Special thanks to +Jackson Galaxy and +Marilyn Krieger for providing testimonial for the article. And best of all, my rescues, Jazmine and Kizmet, get a special shout out in the article, as they are living proof that kittens can be successfully integrated into a multi-cat household! #cats #kittens

Introduction

Deborah Barnes currently resides in the tropical paradise of South Florida and is the author of the book, The Chronicles of Zee & Zoey– A Journey of the Extraordinarily Ordinary, that was inspired by the relationship she shared with her family of seven cats and lessons learned from them after a life changing event in 2009. She is also the creator and author of the popular blog, Zee & Zoey’s Chronicle Connection, that not only continues to follow the everyday journey she shares with her cats, but covers topics from the humorous behaviors of cats to very serious subjects on the misconceptions of feral cats and the critical need to create public awareness on pet responsibility.  All of Deborah’s venues – from books, to blogs, to website are done with her signature style of combining stunning photographs with custom artwork to give the reader not only a literary work, but a visual treat of unique style and craft.

 

 While her first work was not published until 2011, Deborah has a background in marketing and has been writing for over 20 years in various capacities. Her current circle of works has brought her to where she is today – a serious cat advocate and Secretary of the newly created Pawsitively Humane Nonprofit organization of Miami, Florida, whose mission is to create public awareness and reduce the numbers of animals on the streets and in shelters through an extensive educational campaign.

 

Her efforts to educate mainstream society on the issues of cat overpopulation have led her to conduct critically acclaimed interviews with Jackson Galaxy, Hollywood Cat Behaviorist and author of Cat Daddy and star of My Cat From Hell on Animal Planet, Karn Meyers of FixNation Los Angeles, and Steve Dale, multi-award winning pet expert. She has also worked instrumentally with the Alley Cat Allies organization and Vox Felina and has made several video documentaries about the misconceptions of feral cats and the importance of TNR programs. Her most recent series of interviews have been about the abandoned cats in Japan as an aftermath of the devastating tsunami/earthquake/nuclear disasters of last year and she has been integral to spearheading the efforts of saving the outdoor cats that were once safely and peacefully residing on the Loews Orlando Universal resort properties that has garnered national news due to the inhumane and cruel removal of them from the premises.
