Your purchase helped these cute kitties!

Thanks to the support of my wonderful readers, I am delighted to announce that I was able to donate $4,000 to Frankie’s Friends Cat Rescue in Pittsburgh. For the first two weeks after the release of Second to None, the kickoff novella for my new Second Glances series, every book sold meant 50 cents donated to the charity. So you guys should give yourselves a big pat on the back!

Frankie’s Friends offers low-cost veterinary services to both cats and dogs. My daughter the vet student has worked at the clinic over several years, so I know what amazing work they do there…on a shoe-string budget!

Here are some of the cute kitties whom your purchase of Second To None are helping:

Kemosabe has a food allergy that makes him itchy, so he has to wear a T-shirt. But he loves making a fashion statement.


Boyfriend has a cleft palate so he’s a permanent resident at Frankie’s Friends.



This handsome fellow is Carlos. Frankie’s Friends saved him from being euthanized by the people who brought him in who claimed he was mean. Turns out he’s the sweetest cat ever.


Here’s Paige holding an adorable little kitten who’s up for adoption.


Thank you so much for supporting Second to None and Frankie’s Friends!

  • Hi Nancy,
    I just adopted a Weimeraner/chocolate lab mix, about 7 AND WEIGHS 76LBS! The shelter said she weighed 40! She’s the most laid back dog I’ve ever had, except for my last St. Poo, who died too soon. I’ve named this girl Muffin in honor of Muffy….one of the most thoughtful people I’ve ever known. Youall were lucky to have her as long as you did. I’ve never heard anyone say an unkind word about her!

    I have to sort the dogs out so there’s room on my bed for moi!

      Joan, that is so lovely that you named your sweet dog in honor of Muffy. Thank you so much for sharing that with me. Muffin sounds like a wonderful–if large!–companion. I’ll bet she’s pretty too. Yes, I was very fortunate to have had Muffy in my life for so many years. She was a very special person. I miss her, although I still hold her in my heart.

  • I think those of us who were fortunate enough to have known and loved Muffy still hold her in our hearts.

  • I believe you are right, Joan. Thank you!
