We’ve moved on from 2020 – or have we? 

Yes, it’s another cat book. But this is also a history book. And a yearbook. And a poem… All rolled into one! It’s the chaos and the ups and downs that defined 2020. 

Meet Simon & Mulan, two adorable cats who will help you revisit this historical, unprecedented era and reclaim your memories of a momentous, sometimes heartbreaking, and at times wacky, COVID pandemic experience. 

2020: A CAT ODYSSEY is a quirky, rhyming historical journey down memory lane recalling the big and little moments that made it the strangest year ever.


Have you ever wondered what your pet was thinking or dreaming? Let your child's imagination soar and dream of adventure as they follow along with two hilarious cats, Simon & Mulan, in their fantastical secret escapades. Told through 32 pages of rhyming story and humorous, magical fantasy photography, children ages 4-12 will giggle at the fun-filled journey through a cat's mind as they parachute jump, skateboard, swim with sharks and more!​



Sherri “Nina" Neefe is a retired title insurance manager who discovered her real passion when she became Nina to her four grandchildren. Relocating with her husband from San Diego to Northern California, they settled into their Napa home to be closer to their daughters and growing family.

Immersing themselves into learning the Bay Area and adopting two adorable kittens from the local Animal Shelter has made Napa their true sanctuary for this next era of their lives.  

Enjoying camping, gardening, movies, biking and being the family “archivist” creating photobook and video memories keep Sherri busy. Her passion for her "kitties and kiddies” and the true story of Mulan’s frightening “escape” inspired her first chidren’s book, Mulan’s Big Adventure.
