Sunday, Nov. 4: Total Cat Mojo Live
Starting today, author and host of My Cat From Hell Jackson Galaxy (aka The Cat Daddy) kicks off his Total Cat Mojo Live tour, presented by Litter Genie. The well-known cat behaviorist will bring his love for cats to 15 cities across the country throughout November and December.

Thursday, Nov. 8: Fool’s Moon
Available today, Fool’s Moon is the first book in Diane A.S. Stuckart’s Tarot Cats Mystery Series. Ruby Sparks finds it a challenge to take care of her half-sister’s new-age shop – and her growing menagerie of mystically inclined pets, especially when a customer wants her to divine the truth about a murder. When Ruby’s own life is threatened, she begins to wonder if she’s being played for a fool. Luckily, her black cats, Ophelia and Brandon (who have a talent for tarot), and a feisty Pit Bull friend all lend a paw in nabbing the culprit. Published through Midnight Ink.
