I have always loved animals and after putting down my black lab that I had for eleven years, I took almost five years to recover. I found myself unable to truly enjoy life without a pet. After researching dogs and cats extensively, I found the Ragdoll cat breed. They are big, beautiful, dog-like cats with blue eyes that are true in their traits and consistent in breeding qualities. Caesar and his little brother Julius (next book) have been the most amazing pets. My husband Tim and our daughters Emily & Jennifer are convinced they are the best pets we have ever had. Their love for us and each other is truly amazing! Enjoy this book - its meant for adults and children alike. Carmelle J. Eickhoff
I was born and raised in beautiful Minnesota and am very happily married to my husband Tim. Together we have two daughters Emily and Jennifer. I graduated from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I spent twelve years in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit followed by eight years as a nurse in Corporate America. Currently, I am loving the time I have to write books about my family and pets to share with the world. Enjoy!
