Robson Ranch Arizona resident author’s children’s book

Robson Ranch Arizona resident, Margaret Erickson, has written a delightful book about a very special kitty: Simon.  Margaret and husband, Bruce, along with Simon, visited KAZT in Phoenix to share their story.

Simon the Cat, the Adventures of a Very Special Kitty is based for the most part on true events. Simon was adopted from The Humane Society in Phoenix and at the time they did not really consider the trip of 3,500 miles to PEI, Canada and 3,500 miles back to Robson Ranch. Well, luck was on their side; Simon loved travelling, motels and was the best kitty imaginable on the long journeys. To date Simon has travelled over 70,000 miles.

The book has two stories: “The Rescue” and “Simon Finds a New Home.” It is the author’s purpose to have children learn kindness, compassion and just how extra special adoption is from reading the book.

Simon also has a website: where the book may be ordered.  A portion of the profit from the sale of the book will be donated to a branch of The Humane Society in Phoenix in the U.S. and Edmonton, Alberta in Canada, particularly the ASPCA and SPCA.

Margaret is in the process of writing sequels to this book, one of the true stories being when Simon who is always kept indoors or safely in an outdoor run managed to get away, was lost for hours and the entire neighborhood turned out to look for him. That’s Robson Ranch at its finest!
