Amelia and Me is the heart-warming story of a woman and the love of her life – her cat.

This is not just any cat, this is Amelia, a sassy tabby with attitude. And this is not just any woman, this is Ani, a generous, compassionate woman who wears her heart on her sleeve and is kind to all people and animals alike.
When their paths meet, Ani is on the verge of ending her marriage and preparing for life as a single parent. Throughout Ani’s journey of parenthood, identity, heartbreak, loss and discovery of self-worth the one constant in her life is Amelia.

Amelia and Me is a joyful celebration of life and the precious companionship between a woman and her cat.
