About the Author

Nigel Kidd is a twelve-year-old boy from Iowa. He loves cats and makes as many feline friends as he can. Nigel shares stories about feline friends he meets online and in real life on the Twitter and Instagram accounts I've Pet That Cat, the companion to the viral Twitter account I've Pet That Dog by his older brother Gideon.

Rachel Braunigan is Nigel's mom. A social worker turned stay-at-home mom, she has four sons. Rachel assists Nigel with his project by taking pictures, and helping in the never-ending quest to pet more cats. She is the coauthor of Pet That Dog!, a guide to communicating with and caring for dogs.

Susann Hoffmann is a freelance illustrator and author of children's books. With her colorful drawings she wants to brighten up the world and put a smile on old and young faces alike. Susann lives in Hamburg, Germany, and likes to spend her free time on the couch with a cup of tea and a good book.
