A psychologist finds a client… a talking kitten. Owned by the psychologist’s friends.
If that weren’t problem enough, this kitten has, well, issues.
A lot of issues.
And not a whole lot of money.
The Kitten Psychologist series is part of Inklets, a series of short stories ranging from sci-fi to fantasy to lingering just on the edge of normal. One thing’s for sure: you won’t look at the world the same way again.
Book 1: The Kitten Psychologist
A kitten for a client? Preposterous.
A talking kitten, at that? Beyond reason.
Trying to get the kitten to see reason? Completely, utterly, one-hundred-percent impossible. See: kitten.
But for the sake of the kitten’s owners, this psychologist’s going to give it a red-hot go.
A humorous tale about overcoming obstacles and making the most of the time we have.
Book 2: The Kitten Psychologist Broaches the Topic of Economics
The kitten returns, with just as many psychological issues as ever.
Which, fantastic—if it had some way of paying.
Somehow (delicately, probably), the psychologist needs to find the kitten a source of income. And fast.
The second instalment in the popular Kitten Psychologist series, in which we learn about taking ownership of our mistakes.
Book 3: The Kitten Psychologist vs. the Kitten's Owners
Trouble brews for the kitten psychologist…
After two weeks’ vacation, the psychologist’s friends demand an accounting: just exactly how much money did their kitten spend?
Unfortunately, their reaction? Totally justified.
So, this whole kitten-psychologist relationship thing? Yep. Over and out.
Our favourite psychologist is on the case again in a captivating story about doing the right thing, no matter what the cost.
Book 4: The Kitten Psychologist Tries to Be Patient Through Email
Unable to visit the psychologist in person, the kitten resorts to email. Which our psychologist can manage just fine. Except the kitten thinks this makes payment unnecessary.
That… that’s problematic.
The psychologist could break off the relationship, of course. But how exactly do you tell a cat ‘no’?
Our favourite kitten returns, causing more mayhem than ever in this new instalment of The Kitten Psychologist.
Book 5: The Kitten Psychologist & What the Kitten Did
The kitten psychologist finally makes a face-to-face meeting with the kitten’s owners.
But what has the kitten done? And why do the kitten’s owners finally want to talk?
…Also, it totally counts as a meeting if the psychologist runs away in panic before the meeting begins, right? Of course… not.
Right. Let’s get this done with.
Another instalment in van Diepen’s delightful Kitten Psychologist series, in which the kitten finally starts to make some progress with the horrible ordeal of Growing Up.
Book 6: The Kitten Psychologist & the Kitten Come to a Conclusion
