I’m a huge fan of Nic Tatano’s books, especially the ones that combine romance with cats. Confessions of an Angel Cat is a particular favorite that I’ve reread multiple times. I was delighted when Nic told me he just published a new short story, Chasing Number 7, featuring a tortoiseshell cat.

Number 7 (named after the subway line on which she was discovered) needs a cat sitter when her human goes on an extended vacation. Distracted by travel preparations, she inadvertently arranges for two people to take care of her cat, setting the stage for a “meet cute.”

Immensely likeable characters, a New York City setting, and a tortoiseshell cat – what more could you want in a short story! I thoroughly enjoyed this story, I just wish it didn’t end so soon.

Chasing Number 7 is available from Amazon.


Nic Tatano is the author of Confessions of an Angel Cat, also available from Amazon.


What if cats were sent on missions to fix broken human lives? What if, once they’ve successfully accomplished their missions, they establish a “heart lock” with a human, a bond so strong that it will last forever? And what if there is no such thing as linear time at the Rainbow Bridge? “No waiting, no sense of missing someone, no broken hearts.” This wonderful book is entertaining, heartwarming and inspirational, and it will stay with you long after you turned the final page.

  1. Nic, “Confessions of an Angel Cat” is THE best book in my library. I read it at least once a year. Thanks for the many other adventures of the ‘gals’ too. Looking forward to this short story.
    Ingrid, I didn’t mean to ignore you, but was hoping that Nic saw my comment.
    Thanks to you both.


    • Thanks, Bridget, what a wonderful comment! I’m so glad you enjoy the book enough to read it every year!

  2. I went to buy this on your Amazon link and found that it was only available in kindle edition.
    I don’t have a kindle and wanted to buy it in print. Do you know if it will come out in print?

    • Hi Michelle,

      It’s a short story so it’s not long enough for a print edition. You don’t need an actual Kindle to read it, as you can download the kindle program on a laptop, tablet or phone. Then whenever you purchase any e-book, you can have it sent to whatever device you’ve installed the Kindle program. I don’t own a Kindle either, but have the program on my laptop.

      Hope that helps…

      -Nic Tatano
