Stories on the edge of familiarity

The Kitten Psychologist Series

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.

 

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.
