Peter Scottsdale

Biography

A cat lover from an early age, Peter Scottsdale wrote his first cat tale, “The Cat and the Dog,” in a grade three creative writing exercise – the story of a cat and a dog lost in the woods, and the police shooting the dog for some reason. Peter drew inspiration for the story from Disney’s The Incredible Journey.

Inspired by such books as Hardy Boys Mysteries, Marvel Comics and Mythology by Edith Hamilton, Scottsdale wrote several published short stories with his grade nine English teacher.

Then life happened. Scottsdale stopped writing, only scribbling bits of story every so often. A family came along which turned into single parenthood. He raised his kids and wrote here-and-there.

Throughout his life, cats have been a welcome and influencing presence. From Tia (a Siamese) to Booties (a Tabby with White) to Rusty (an orange boy with little ears) to Sam the Siamese, Peter has loved all his felines (and still does). He’s loved all his cats so much so he started to write about them. They have inspired and delighted him to create cat stories and to find feline facts for his books.

Cat lover turned author, Peter Scottsdale published his first book, 365 Fascinating Facts You Didn’t Know About Your Cat, in 2012. He followed that with How Do Cats Do That? and The Wonder of Cats.

An English Major, Scottsdale graduated from Medicine Hat College with an Associate of Arts Diploma in 1995. He continues to research our furry felines and write cat fiction and non-fiction and hopes fellow kitty-cat people will enjoy his work.

Currently, he resides in Medicine Hat, AB with his three cats: Tanzy (the feisty feline), Alley (the mischief maker) and Tigger (the gentle giant).
