About Moo Kitty:

Moo Kitty Finds a Home, a Mom’s Choice Awards® Gold Recipient, is a heartwarming story about a cat who finds himself on his own in search of a new home. After leaving his rose garden, he meets new human and cat friends who help him have courage, strength and faith that he’ll soon find a new forever home.  Love, compassion and friendship are just some of the life lessons that Moo Kitty learns on his journey.

The story has a great message for kids. It highlights the need for adult animal adoption, and offers an opportunity to introduce children to the concepts of loss, abandonment, adoption and pet-responsibility in a positive and age-appropriate manner.


Delightfully bright and lively illustrations bring a light touch to this story with a happy ending. The book includes a list the benefits of adopting an adult pet, and tips for helping them settle in as a new member of the family.

Every parent will want to share this story filled with hope, faith and goodness with their child.

 About Valerie Veltre:

Fond of creatures great and small, Valerie believes each deserves love, compassion, adequate care and admiration. After having lived in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, from 1993-2011, she currently makes her home at Bee Tree Farm, in the heart of Kentucky’s bluegrass horse country.

Valerie makes the most of this location as an equestrian, spending time riding her two horses. She shares her home with a variety of four-legged creatures, including a dog and five cats.

She’s a fan of the outdoors in general, and enjoys making connections with the Earth through gardening. Along with her love of animals, she deeply appreciates the occasional good laugh with human friends and family.

Having graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from East Stroudsburg University, Valerie concentrated in Creative Writing and has always wanted to be a writer. An avid reader, she

was inspired to write and illustrate her first book, Moo Kitty Finds a Home, after she rescued real-life Moo Kitty and gave him a forever home. She believed the resulting children’s book would help educate young readers about the importance of animal rescue, and especially adult pet adoption.

The real Moo Kitty is alive and well, enjoying making daily excursions to inspect the flower garden at Bee Tree Farm. He can often be found in his favorite chair, napping on his mint green blanket. Along with so much else about the bucolic setting, Moo Kitty inspires his human to further pursue her writing career.

Now aspiring to be a full-time author, Valerie is currently planning her next book. She speaks to libraries, classrooms, church groups and community and civic organizations about adult animal rescue, sheltering and adoption.
