"Pet lovers will lap up every word of this charming and candid story of a single woman opening her heart and home to an emotionally complicated cat. Like the best pet memoirs, it is what we learn about the human experience that matters most."

-John Grogan, author of Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog


"Home with Henry features an outer story—the rescue of a stray cat—but beneath waits a deeper tale, the truth that sometimes the things we reach out to save end up saving us. Told with patience and compassion, Home with Henry is a testament to the powers of love and the triumph of trust."

 -Curtis Smith, Best American Short Stories author

“In this delightful memoir of urban living, a professional woman and a frightened kitten form a domestic partnership that turns a house into a home. It’s a tale told with wit, refreshing insight and above all, wisdom about the healing energies of friendship and kinship.”

-J. C. Todd, poet and Pew Fellow, author of What Space This Body


“There is wisdom in these pages and beauty. Home with Henry is embellished with Carol Chu’s soft, minimal illustrations that echo the fragility of Anne’s relationship with Henry.”

  -MaryAnn Miller, author of Locus Mentis.
