Publisher Description

For fans of Grumpy Cat and Cats on Instagram there's a new cat in town--Bailey, No Ordinary Cat--of the Facebook name, is a special cat with a growing fan base, garnering over 2 million views on Ellen's Instagram and videos that have been shared by Good Morning America, ABC News, CBS News, and more. What makes Bailey more addictive than catnip? In addition to his adorable expressions and his hilarious, heartfelt antics, Bailey has a penchant for doing things that are characteristically uncatlike--things like taking bubble baths (and enjoying them), sitting attentively in a chair and being read to (for hours), getting a pet -icure, and his unending patience while co-raising his human siblings Abby and Hannah (yes, there is photographic evidence that Bailey helped with potty-training). If you have a cat you know how independent they are. Bailey, No Ordinary Cat celebrates the unique quirky spirit of this unforgettable feline through four-color photographs and captions from the voice of Bailey himself. Cat lovers will be delighted to peek into the life of their favorite celebrity cat with the huge eyes, huge heart, and huge personality--and an ever-growing following.

Excerpt from Book

Bailey No Ordinary Cat Once in a great while, a pet enters our lives, enchants us, and changes everything. A giant soul inside of a tiny creature who most assuredly was sent to us for reasons beyond our understanding. Bailey, a tiny orange tabby cat, broke the mold when he became Erin Merryn's furry companion hailing back from her college days when he illegally shared her dorm room through to becoming the eldest sibling to her three young daughters. What went on in Erin's household morphed into a career for Bailey as family entertainer and social media mega-star. His behavior was beyond cat-like with monk-like tolerance and uncharacteristic patience. Most cats would never be caught in a tuxedo or wearing sunglasses or sitting in a high chair to eat dinner, but that's what made him Bailey, No Ordinary Cat. The tear-jerking part of the story is that Bailey, like all cats, was not destined to live forever. A heartbreak to his human siblings, Bailey was summoned to kitty heaven after some struggles with his health at the ripe old age of fourteen. He gave the family a bonus year when he was first diagnosed but his nine lives ended before he could enjoy being heralded as a bestselling book star. But, at the time of writing this note, the late Bailey still enjoys off-the-charts social media fame and has been the subject of stories as far as Taiwan and Australia. The outpouring of love for this extraordinary animal has come from all over the world in letters, gifts, and a plethora of stuffed orange kitties for the children (Abby, Hannah, and Claire Joy). Never mind the "You Are My Sunshine" video that virally made it on Ellen and Good Morning America and countless blogs while Bailey was still alive. Rarely is there a dry eye at the end of this video! Turn the pages and we guarantee mostly laughter, some expressions of disbelief, and possibly a tear or two when you witness the many expressions of Bailey's personality and his one-in-a-million spirit. We know you'll appreciate this lovable rascal who will continue to evoke warm feelings, smiles, and love beyond his years here on earth. Now, without further ado, we give you, Bailey, No Ordinary Cat.
