Celebrate a Year in the Life of Social Media Celebrity Cat, Carrot
March 1, 2021/
Bailey was certainly no ordinary cat. The charismatic orange tabby’s humanlike antics made him a social media sensation, and he was adored by feline lovers around the world. When Bailey passed away at age 14, his family grieved their profound loss. They’d never find a cat quite like him—or would they?
Just as Bailey’s family—including Erin Merryn and her young girls Abby, Hannah and baby Claire—were mending their broken hearts, a tiny orange tabby kitten, born as a stray, found her way into their lives.
Diary of the Cat Named Carrot is the uplifting,instantly stress-reducing story of Carrot’s humble beginnings in a shelter and her eventual rise to internet stardom. Told from Carrot’s perspective, readers can follow along on her remarkable journey from the same shelter that had once housed Bailey to top Instagram celebrity feline. Much like Bailey had, Carrot loves spending time with her human family partaking in typically human pastimes: making mischief with her girl gang; joyriding in a pint-sized pink Barbie Jeep; doing arts and crafts; modeling a pink tutu and flowery headband; enjoying a spa day complete with fluffy robe and cucumber eye treatments; and celebrating Christmas, Easter and every holiday in between. It’s no wonder Carrot’s videos have gone viral—garnering attention from Ellen, the Dodo, Good Morning America, Access Hollywood, People and many other media outlets.
Diary of the Cat Named Carrot is packed with color photos that will leave readers purring with delight. The journal of this sweet, adorable kitty with personality to spare shows us that the human-animal bond runs more than fur deep. It is a love that will last a lifetime.
