“Ingrid King defines what it is to be a ‘cat person.’ She doesn’t just live with them, observe and write about them; rather, she delves deeper, reflecting a natural sense of empathy and kinship with cats. There is an intrinsic bond with the feline world on display in casual conversation with Ingrid, as well as in her writing. Ingrid brings us closer to understanding the everyday reality of cats and, finally, what we can learn about our own lives through better appreciating theirs.”
– Jackson Galaxy, Cat Behaviorist and host of
Animal Planet’s “My Cat From Hell”

Advance Praise for Tortitude
“To call torties misunderstood would be the understatement of the year; the misinformed and un-initiated might just see them as moody, grouchy or mean! In this book, Ingrid brings all of her talent, skill and heart to the job of setting the tortie record straight. Anybody who has had the honor of sharing their life with a tortie owes Ingrid a debt of gratitude, because she has taken the stereotype, turned it on it’s head, and opened the world’s eyes to the true meaning of tortitude.” – Jackson Galaxy, Host of Animal Planet’s My Cat From Hell
