Who is Ryko?

I’m the Founder of Whisker Life and was born and raised in New Hampshire. Ever since I was a kitten, I had always had a feeling that I was destined for something big. But since taking my journey to find my purpose, my life has taken dramatic twists, turns, and has lead to unexpected discoveries. 

Come to find out, my purpose is far larger than I could have ever imagined. And I share all of the details of how I ended up here in my new book, Ryko.

Lastly, I’m a very friendly, motivated, curious, and love to make connections to find the deeper meaning of life. Most of all, I love to be happy and make others happy, too.

My motto is: Love More. Hiss Less.

What Is The Ryko Book About?

As you probably know, every cat leaves at some point to go on their journey and find their purpose in life. It’s something that we all do.

Some come back the same as they left. Others, well, not so much. I left for my journey and came back not only a new Ryko, but to a very changed internal and external world.

Yes. This is my shocking true story.

I wrote “Ryko” to share my journey and how I came up with Whisker Life. Well, I should say how Whisker Life found me. I also share how my mission to save the world unfolded (and continues to unfold).

My book is filled with mystery. Adventure. Setbacks. Heartbreak. Love. Friendships. And essentially everything all of us cats go through in life. Except mine happened all in a very short period of time. Sometimes all at once.

Who Is This Book For?

Although I am working on several books for kittens, this book is not one of them. This one is for those who are a bit older. Maybe teens and adult cats.

Why? Because the journey I have been on has not been easy. In my book, I’m real, I’m raw, and I touch some subjects that may not be understood by little kittens. But I promise, most of my future books will. Want to check it out?
