The information contained on this website would not have been possible without the talent, assistance, and dedication of many wonderful people. I am very grateful for their help, support, and patience.
Justin Kestler made this website possible. I truly appreciate his dedication, ideas and expertise. He is intuitive, quick to finish the job, and extremely easy to work with. Thanks to Justin, we are now able to enjoy Cat Be Good on the internet.
Neil Feineman contributed greatly to the content of CatBeGood.com and to my sanity. Neil graciously stepped in to help write, edit, and organize this project to book form. His patience, persistence, and dedication were extraordinary. Neil’s allergy to cats makes him all that more dedicated to getting the job done.
Josh Gunn deserves special recognition. He turned a draft into a manuscript.
More than anyone, my husband, Bruce Delaplain, knows how to write down what I mean to say. His meticulous questions, reviews, and editing were critical. Also, thank you Bruce, for inventing the title Cat Be Good.
