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.

Matt’s a published adult fiction author, so we decided to create a children’s illustrated chapter book series about Bunny’s adventures paying forward her good fortune, inspired by hours of imagining what Bunny might get up to, if given half a chance. We have two goals: To help children to understand the power of kindness and empathy, and to raise money for the groups that work so hard to make a difference. We hope you’ll join us on this journey!

  • New York City Big Book Award Winner
  • Independent Press Awards: Distinguished Favorite
  • Moonbeam Children’s Book Award: Gold

To pay forward our good fortune in adopting Bunny, we donate $5 from every book sold to KittyKind, and other U.S. rescue and shelter groups. See Our Donations page for more details.

About Hello My Name is Bunny!

A Children’s Book Series

Our children’s book series features a small kitty with a big heart who’s finally found her fur-ever home. Yet Bunny can’t seem to enjoy her good luck knowing other animals aren’t as fortunate as she is.

This desire to help those in need compels Bunny to escape her safe, comfy home and embark on wild adventures, so far in New York and London. Who knows where Bunny will find herself next?

Reader Reviews

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.

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.
