TCBR: Morning, Miss Moo: Story of an Ornery Cat is your first published book. Can you tell us about the story?

Carrie Dow: The original idea for the character came from my silly cat. She is constantly getting into trouble, just as all kids do, yet it always ends up being so funny. So, I thought she would make a funny character. The story is about a daily occurrence at my house, Miss Moo waking me up way too early in the morning because she’s hungry. Something pet owners and parents can all relate to.

Carrie Dow of Lakewood, CO, has published her first book for children, Morning, Miss Moo (Story of an Ornery Cat), by Trafford Publishing. Dow used her own cat, a stray she and her husband found behind the garage, as inspiration for the story. According to Dow, the cat causes a lot of trouble. “But we still love her,” she says.

“Pets are a lot like children, in that they do things that we don’t always approve of,” she states. “While their actions may be inappropriate, their intentions are good. That’s what I wanted to convey in the story.”
