About the Author
Annie Bruce was born in Detroit, Michigan, in 1955, the youngest of six children. Her Filipino father and New England mother married in 1931. Annie's family owned cats throughout her childhood. Like her mother and grandmother, Annie has a particular fondness for black cats and has owned black male cats since she was a child.
Annie attended Cass Technical High School in downtown Detroit and worked for 20 years as a computer operator. Her volunteer work with sick and abused cats took her to public fairs, where she talked to cat owners about their cats' problems. When Annie realized that many owners and cats were suffering hardship and expense, she started a consulting business. That business in turn led to this book.
Annie now lives in Boulder, Colorado, with her husband, Bruce, and four gorgeous cats, Marvin-My-Man, Louie-Louie, Abraham Lincoln and Bob. When she's not talking about cats, she's enjoying friends, eating and hip-hop dance classes.
