Author Janet Vormittag pens Cat Women of West Michigan

Janet Vormittag of West Michigan calls herself ‘A Crazy Cat Lady,’ and thus the name of her book series with the newest book out just in time for the holidays. Cat Women of West Michigan tells 30 compelling stories of passionate women who do cat rescue in many different forms from the actual rescue to Cat Cafe in Grand Rapids.

Vormittag became the self-proclaimed  ‘A Crazy Cat Lady’ in the mid-80s with the rescue of an injured kitten Lucy in Saugatuck that lived 10 years.

“They’re not crazy cat ladies,” she said. “Just compassionate women.”

She connected with these women through her quarterly magazine Cats and Dogs.

“I was struck by women rescuing cats,” she said.

And the number of euthanized cats went down from 8,000 to 189 over the last 15 years since the publication started.

“It’s a community problem,” she said.
