Joan Durbin has always had a great love for children and animals. In 2012, she lived on a houseboat for 7 months. Her brave and curious cat Petey lived with her. During that time she learned more about cats than she thought possible!
Joan believes that children have a natural love for animals and thought she would share an adventure with children about Petey’s experience on the houseboat.
Joan is a registered nurse and lives in Louisville, Kentucky.
