"Bill’s book contains a lot of goodness, a little sadness and some triumphs in its pages. You’ll enjoy the read as much as I did."
—Steven Frech, DVM, Scandia, Minnesota

Millions of people have cats, dogs and other pets. Once in a lifetime, there is one so special you will never forget it. That's the case with Bill Voedisch and his cat Mitten. Enjoy their antics, and those of their other two-legged and four-legged pals, in Citizen Mitten. But beware, Bill says anyone who brings home a pet accepts the responsibility for their death, be it a few years away, or 20, as in the case of Mitten. Why? Bill tells us in his sometimes hilarious, sometimes poignant, always memorable, stories.  

“Cats are wonderful, amazing companions who daily enrich our lives. But they do not live as long as we do. Citizen Mitten shares the hilarious antics of Bill and his cat (well cats actually, and a few dogs), and also his philosophy that it is your responsibility to provide your pet a death with dignity if at all possible. Recommended reading for all cat fanciers and dog lovers as well.” 
—Dan Poynter, author of The Older Cat, a book that helps readers recognize feline decline and urges a loving, peaceful death.
