"Hobicat Goes to Heaven is all kinds of beautiful!! It filled my heart with so much love, watery eyes, and a big, big smile. I had to go love on each of my 3 fur baby kitties napping around the house—and send some big love to my fur baby pups that are on the other side. Blessings and so much love to you!! Hobiecat!! Hobiecat!! Hobiecat!!😁

"I listened to your story Hobicat Goes to Heaven and found it so sweetly written. Even though intended for children, in my opinion it will help any adults who [are] afraid of death, etc. Nice job, I will check out the other stories when I am able to, I've got it bookmarked! And it is so sweet that you have it available free for all, how kind of you!
