It’s difficult to find someone who hasn’t had their heart touched by a beloved pet, but some of us are lucky enough to have our lives irrevocably changed along the way. Juliette Sebock’s How My Cat Saved My Life and Other Poems describes the poet’s transformative relationship with the tabby cat who came into her life at a critical time and saved her:  from mental illness, from grief, and, perhaps most importantly, from herself.

Advance Praise

“Juliette Sebock delivers a warm and fuzzy ode to felines in How My Cat Saved My Life. There is something refreshing about an author who is unapologetically in love with cats and carbs. It is no exaggeration to say I read this book – start to finish – with a smile. “

—Lannie Stabile, author of Little Masticated Darlings

“It is hard to put into words how impactful animals can be on our day to day lives. Sebock’s How My Cat Saved My Life is a sweet and endearing collection of poems that truly offer a collective ode to the love of our animals and the ways they return the favor. This book is for anyone who is having a bad day, misses their pet, or wishes they could have a pet. Actually, this collection is for everyone, on any day.

—Lynne Schmidt, award-winning poet and author
