I’m absolutely thrilled about the Tiny but Mighty Book and you should be too! It’s here! I read it! It’s absolutely freaking amazing!
Okay, maybe you don’t know what I’m talking about, but by the end of this post, you will be just as excited. If you’re a cat lover or into cat rescue, anyway. As you’re on Barn Cat Lady, I’m going to take a leap of faith and assume you are.

Hannah Shaw, Author and Internet Famous Kitten Lady!
In case you aren’t aware, there are a ton of informational videos on orphaned neonatal kitten care by the animal advocate, Kitten Lady. Any time any of us have ever had to deal with an orphaned kitten emergency of any kind, the Kitten Lady has a how-to video on it. (She’s entertaining, too!)
Now admittedly, I do Trap Neuter Return (TNR) and kitten socialization, but there have been a couple of bottle-fed orphans I’ve dealt with. I don’t have near the experience as Hannah Shaw does, so it’s awesome she’s got so many videos available to instruct us less-experienced bottle-feeders.
She runs a nonprofit and is an animal protection advocate. You can find her at https://www.kittenlady.org/
In any case, she is adding published author to her list of accomplishments!
The Tiny But Mighty Book
Hannah Shaw released her first book with how-tos and adorable pictures of neonatal kittens on August 06, 2019. I pre-ordered it immediately and got it just days after it was released!
If you’re involved in cat rescue, TNR, fostering, or anything related to cats, I highly suggest you join me in supporting a fellow cat rescuer by ordering a copy.
I do recommend getting it in hardback, NOT Kindle version. The pictures are more awesome that way!
Her videos are invaluable and her book is absolutely pure gold!
I don’t often deal with neonatal kittens, but I’ve had to bottle-feed kittens four times, one of those only 2-days-old by the time I had gotten him. Situations happen in TNR and I wished I had this book then. I’ll be glad to include the book in my emergency kitten kit for future use.
Tiny But Mighty: Kitten Lady’s Guide to Saving the Most Vulnerable Felines is listed as a New York Times bestseller. It’s definitely worth it!

Tiny but Mighty Book Review – 5+ Stars!
Wait, you want to know what I think about the book?
This book is hands-down the best resource for saving neonatal kittens ever written.
We all love kittens and we all know this book is to help others to save their lives. It also contains amazing and adorable pictures and the Kitten Lady’s compassionate view of overextended shelters with no funds and her patience with people who don’t understand. Each section contains heartwarming personal stories about kittens as examples.
What you might not realize is that the Kitten Lady isn’t just about saving neonatal kittens. She’s also about preventing them in the first place, especially utilizing TNR (trap neuter return).
TNR is a program in a lot of communities in the US to reduce the reproductive capabilities of our outdoor cat population by sterilization and then returning them to their outdoor home.
Part of saving kittens is definitely preventing more from being born when most shelters and rescues can’t handle the ones they have. A huge part of TNR is kitten rescue and adoption to get them safe, loving homes.
This book explains the sad truth about feline overpopulation in a way that any cat lover will tear up. She explains preventing kittens before she explains kitten care.
I applaud Hannah Shaw for understanding shelters and their workers don’t want to euthanize cats and going out of her way to inform cat lovers of this truth.
I applaud Hannah Shaw for writing this excellent book and sharing kitten rescue, animal rescue, and TNR to anyone that cares to learn.
If you love cats, no matter what age they are, no matter if they’re feral or tame, and you don’t think you can make a difference, then pick up this book.
Everyone can make a difference and this guide explains exactly how to save kittens. If you can’t foster kittens? Join volunteers in TNR. This guide explains exactly how to do that! Just love cats? Read this guide and you will be motivated to volunteer in some way.
I dare you to read this guide and NOT be motivated to help.
Definitely, 5+ Stars!
But Wait! A Children’s Book Too?
Kitten Lady’s Big Book of Little Kittens is a children’s book she’s released as well!
On October 08, 2019, a month after her Tiny But Mighty book went live, your kids (or you) can enjoy learning about kittens and orphaned kitten care in a more fun way. She’s also sharing the fun little facts of tiny kittens and inspiring kids to want to take part in kitten rescue as well.
Pretty awesome, right?
Excited? Me too!
If you are a part of cat rescue or feral cat care, I highly recommend you get on ordering a copy. Barn cat and feral cat caretakers are often finding orphaned kittens or kittens in need of care. This resource should be on everyone’s shelf who cares for those special felines!
Plus, we get to support a fellow cat advocate with her success.
Go buy it!
