Fontaine’s book, “A Kitty and His Dream,” is the touching story of the antics of a stray cat named Outside Kitty. Nicknamed “O.K.,” he is an adorable cat who dreams of living the good life with a loving family.

“The real life Outside Kitty was brought to the Humane Society of Douglas County, which was also where he was adopted from,” explained Fontaine. “Our way of saying thanks is to show the benefits of these organizations, and this is why we're donating a portion of the sales to our local humane society. We hope others will donate as well.”
