Pre-Order Tortitude: The BIG Book About Cats With a BIG Attitude and Help at Risk Cats


I’m excited to announce that Tortitude: The BIG Book About Cats With a Big Attitude is now available for pre-order! For every copy pre-ordered before February 4, 2016, I will donate $1 to the Jackson Galaxy Foundation.

The book features facts about torties as well as stunning photographs and quotes dedicated to these beautiful cats. Ultimately, Tortitude is a tribute to these special cats and their passionate guardians.

The book opens with a foreword by Kate Benjamin, Founder of Hauspanther and New York Times bestselling co-author of Catification: Designing a Happy and Stylish Home for Your Cat (and You!) and Catify to Satisfy: Simple Solutions for Creating a Cat-Friendly Home.

“To call torties misunderstood would be the understatement of the year; the misinformed and un-initiated might just see them as moody, grouchy or mean! In this book, Ingrid brings all of her talent, skill and heart to the job of setting the tortie record straight. Anybody who has had the honor of sharing their life with a tortie (like me, as you can see from these pictures of my dear, departed Chuppy) owes Ingrid a debt of gratitude, because she has taken the stereotype, turned it on its head, and opened the world’s eyes to the true meaning of tortitude.”

    I’ll definitely order a copy of this! Tortoiseshell cats are intriguing. I love their fur color patterns. I’m also glad to see something debunk the myths about them. I’ve seen a vet tech at one shelter talk about how she has a tortie with attitude, and therefore all torties have attitude…sigh. Shaking my head.

      That’s one of the many reasons why I wrote the book, Dienna. Even though I’ve met plenty of torties that have tortitude in spades, there are others who are sweet and mild-mannered. Every cat is an individual, regardless of coat color. But there is must something about torties… 🙂

    On my wishlist for now, Have Christmas shopping to do first. Looking forward to it, though.
