A Brooklyn woman who “has it all” gets a lot more than she bargained for when a family of wild cats moves into her backyard. This hilarious and heartwarming memoir follows author Nina Malkin’s obsessive attempts to serve, protect, and befriend the feral colony as she reluctantly comes to terms with being a “crazy cat lady.” Packed with insights and information on feline behavior and the nuts and bolts of cat caretaking, this book brings the feral cat epidemic home in all-too human terms.
