Award-Winning Children’s Book Series
Hello, My Name is Bunny!
Who would imagine that a small, adorable tuxedo cat could change your life? Well, it happened to us! When we adopted Bunny, we soon learned that half a million cats are homeless in NYC alone! With this in mind, we decided to find a way to help the incredible groups and volunteers that make life better for cats in need.
And so, we created a children’s chapter book series about Bunny’s wild, wacky, and perilous adventures paying forward her good fortune, inspired by hours of imagining what Bunny might get up to, if given half a chance.
Why we do this
Our mission is to help create awareness of the plight of millions of abandoned, feral, or lost cats. We also want to raise funds to support the shelters that work so hard to help forgotten felines find loving, forever homes, and where we can, to support Trap, Neuter, and Release (TNR) groups in their efforts to responsibly manage homeless cat populations.
Through storytelling, we hope to entertain, engage, and encourage young readers and animal lovers of all ages to join us on a journey to create a kinder, more empathetic world in which everyone understands the importance of treating all animals—including humans—with respect, dignity, and compassion.

After finishing this book, I was immediately consumed with jealousy. Bunny had so many fun-sounding adventures, and now I have, like, 50 things on my cat bucket list.

This beautifully illustrated and equally beautifully written story will charm children and adults alike. I was pulled into the story from the very first page. As was the case with the first book, the antics of Bunny and her friends had me smiling throughout. Ingrid King, The conscious cat
