I love Denise Swanson's cozies. It is great to have the main character be a school psychologist and I am glad that she is turning to animal therapy even though something goes wrong!

Poor therapy cat, he may have needed therapy himself after that. Maine Coons would definitely make the best therapy cats. Mine was wonderful. This sounds interesting.
