With my new book, COPY CATS, a crazy Cat Lady mystery coming out soon, I asked Jackson Galaxy if he would write me a note of praise. I am extremely proud of this commendation and want to share it with you:
I know Mollie Hunt not as an author – I know Mollie as a true, dyed-in-the-wool cat person. I know her as a cat guardian and a foster parent and, most importantly, as a human being.
After being around cats, cat people and the animal welfare world for the better part of 20 years, one thing I can spot a mile away is true passion; it is not a quality that is nurtured over time nor is it a skill; you either have it or you don’t – and Mollie Hunt has it. When she is confronted with mystery, she dives in and won’t come back up for air until she is satisfied. And through the process of turning questions into answers, she never loses sight of the beating heart that lives under the question mark. She knows that in order to really understand cats, you have to know them – and to know a cat is to experience the world as they do, to feel their courage and fear, to truly invest in everything from their deep-rooted suspicions to their everyday experiences of joy, satisfaction and love.
The components that make cats passionate about their world, and each moment that makes up a day in that world are just that- a collection of words. People like Mollie are rare in this world because they infuse their own curiosity about that world with true empathy. This combination of qualities are in my opinion the recipe for not only a quality person, but, in the end, a great artist as well.
