Just how far will we go to understand the
ones we love?

beloved cat Tibia.

This is a book for animal lovers, pet owners, and anyone who has ever done anything desperate for love.

Reviews of Lost Cat

"A delightful read for all those of us who would be lost without our cats."
Suzy Becker, #1 New York Times bestselling author of All I Need to Know, I Learned From My Cat
"You may say that love is not a word for feelings between people and books.I say I loved this book. I felt giddy when I read it. I smiled constantly and made snorty crack-up noises, the kind that make the people around you go, What?! Then I'd get choked up, and then I'd be giddy again, and all the way through, I didn't want it ever to end. I think we can all agree that's love."
Mary Roach, New York Times bestselling author of Packing for Mars and Stiff
"The writing and drawings are funny. Nutty. Heartwarming. Smart. Loopy. Full of love."
Maira Kalman, New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of #1 New York Times Bestsellers Food Rules by Michael Pollan and The Elements of Style by William Strunk, Jr. and E.B. White
