Hi everyone, Katie here.
I am honored to share a beautiful book project with you today. It's a book with a purpose and a mission to help homeless cats who need medical care and families in financial need who are facing medical-care funding challenges for their pets.
The Bad Guy on the Block
is a clever caper about three cats who through teamwork, help to catch a neighborhood thief. Dewey, Thumper and Lily, three beautiful and goofy Norwegian forest cats, are the unlikely heroes, along with their human, Anna. The book is written by Cincinnati author and devoted cat-mom, Kristin Heimerl.
The whimsical illustrations, created by Irene Bofill Garcia, are sure to turn this tale into a classic bedtime story for children and their cat-loving parents.
The Cast Kitties
The three cats are real and belong to Kristin. The story is (mostly) true. And the cause and mission is close to her heart and to ours.
Give Them Health and a Home™
25% of the profits will fund acute medical care for homeless shelter cats so that they have a change at living healthy and happy lives in loving forever homes. Struggling families in financial need will also be eligible for acute medical-care funding so that their pet can remain part of their family and out of the shelter system.
Why is This So Very Important?
As much as no one likes to think about their pets becoming ill or needing medical care, things happen. Cats become ill, sometimes suffering from a disease, sometimes as the result of an accident.
Homeless shelter cats with treatable illnesses or who need expensive care to bring them back to health often suffer the worst fate of all. These are savable lives. Many were once someone's special companion. With a little help, faith and attention, they can be once again.
What Can You Do NOW?

Their book is an Indiegogo project. They've launched a campaign to raise funds to bring their project and book to fruition. Regardless of the outcome of the campaign, as Kristin writes on her home page, "Like the steely resolve of the rescuers who inspire this initiative, I'll bootstrap together the remaining funds needed to bring this book to market."
