Once upon a time, there was a deranged orange ditch kitty in need of rescue, and a broken kid in need of direction. The Kid saved the kitten, and the kitten saved the Kid, and the internet loved it, and everyone lived happily ever after.
Except life doesn’t stop when the last page is written. And if Ditch and his newfound owner were no longer lost, they weren’t quite found yet either.
Change comes not only in the form of vicious night goblins, but also relationships and kids. How can a man who can barely manage to feed a cat be responsible for a newborn human? And a new stepson? How can he move to an actual suburb with his actual partner and be the guy drinking beer on the porch while the neighborhood kids play? And what about the next cat? And the next cat? And the next kid?
And through it all there’s Ditch, chewing through internet cables and getting piss in the bed―not his own, don’t ask―and cutting and clawing his way around the house in a Batman Halloween costume. He’s killing mice and birds and getting cat concussions and picking fights with the neighborhood strays. Like the man who found him, he’s dodging change with every furry orange fiber of his being.
Yet there comes a time when man and beast must venture in from the wilderness. The world may make domesticated animals out of them yet.
The thirteen stories of The Ditch Kitty present a funny, sardonic, and blisteringly real account of life and change and a man and his cat who, despite their best efforts, find themselves entirely unable to avoid it.
