Sideways Boy is a real cat. The little guy is a stroke survivor, but it left him all tilty. He enjoys life and loves his human family and the other three cats in his Freehold, NJ home.
The book, a third of which is about our slanted cat hero, was also born locally. David Eisenstein, author and Sideways Boy’s cat daddy, had been working on a book about a caring, veteran teacher for a long time. When the loving little cat came into his life, he knew he had found the missing piece. The novel, Sideways Boy, came out in 2019.
A portion of all Sideways Boy merchandise goes to help a local animal shelter.
