The book is available for purchase at Amazon.com and other online book purchasing sites.

Link to purchase on Amazon (note: the paperback version is eligible for an additional donation to Cat Care Society via the Amazon Smile program)

Quoting Sierra Koester's Fur Everywhere blog: "If you'd like an autographed copy of the book, you can order one directly from Deb [the author] by emailing her at: info@zzppublishing.com. Each book ordered directly from Deb also includes a beautiful keepsake bookmark and tissue paper wrapping."
