It looks like all of those gorgeous torties that will be featured in my new book, Tortitude: The BIG Book About Cats With a BIG Attitude didn’t want to wait until February 5, which was the scheduled release date, and decided to move things along a bit. The book is in stock and shipping from Amazon now! If you pre-ordered your copy, you should receive it in the next few days.

I’m not entirely sure what went wrong, because this wasn’t supposed to have happened, and I won’t get a chance to talk to my publisher until after the holidays, but I’d say it’s safe to say that a hefty dose of tortitude had a little something to do with it, don’t you think?

I will continue to donate $1 for every copy ordered before the original release date of February 5, 2016, to the Jackson Galaxy Foundation.

Advance Praise for Tortitude from Jackson Galaxy

“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 it’s head, and opened the world’s eyes to the true meaning of tortitude.”

The Jackson Galaxy Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk animals by transforming the places they live and by helping the people who care for them. They believe that the best dreams are big and that no animal should die waiting for a home. They are working to make this dream a reality.

  1. mY tortie, Lucy Lu, is a sweet, cuddly, purrfect kitty! She is playful and gets along beautifully with 11 year old Reagan, a Yorkie. We love her dearly! Don’t know if this is true tortie behavior! Will have to get the book and find out!

  2. Sooner than later, who’s complaining?!

    I’m about to order a second copy as a gift for the woman running our local rescue that brought Cocoabean into our life!

    • I know, right, Laurie? And thank you for ordering a second copy – what a purrfect gift for the woman who helped bring Cocobean into your life.
