Overview
"We're just going to look."

Helen Brown had no intention of adopting a pet when she brought her sons, Sam and Rob, to visit a friend's new kittens. But the runt of the litter was irresistible, with her overlarge ears and dainty chin.

When Cleo was delivered weeks later, she had no way of knowing that her new family had just been hit by a tragedy -- the loss of a child. Helen was sure she couldn't keep her -- until she saw something she thought had vanished from the earth forever: her son's smile. The reckless, rambunctious kitten stayed.

Through happiness and heartbreak, changes and new beginnings, Cleo turned out to be the unlikely glue that affectionately held Helen's family together. Rich in wisdom, wit, heart, and healing, here is the story of a cat with an extraordinary gift for knowing just where she was needed most.

"A remarkable memoir...I realized that Helen Brown didn't break my heart at all—she opened it." -- Beth Hoffman, New York Times bestselling author of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

"An absolute must." -- Cat World

"The next Marley & Me. Even non cat-lovers will be moved." -- Good Housekeeping
