About the Author

Dr. Paul Koudounaris has a PhD in art history from UCLA and an international speaking career, and he is one of the world's most popular historians of the eccentric, ephemeral, and macabre. A beloved fixture in the cat appreciation community, he is annually a speaker at the world's largest cat convention, CatCon, with more than 20,000 attendees. Vice, LA Weekly, Brooklyn Paper, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal have all covered Dr. Koudounaris's cat-related scholarship and photography.

Baba is a domestic short hair tabby with a love for adventure and history. Despite weighing in at less than nine pounds, she is big on the inside and never has any cat or human stood in the way of her getting what she wants. Born to the rough streets of Los Angeles and educated in the school of hard knocks, she was interred in the city's animal shelter at a young age only to be discovered there by her human co-author. She started modeling five years ago and has since graced websites and publications across the world, with several of her images being exhibited in gallery shows and printed as posters. A Cat's Tale is her first book, and she has offered the opinion that writing is drudgery so it will probably turn out to be her last. She still lives in Southern California, and has a sister whose food she steals and otherwise completely ignores.
