Go the @&*# to sleep, Charlie

Another article of mine from the new issue of the Marina Times:

At last, Charlie fell the heck to sleep.

Go the @&*# to sleep, Charlie
Moving can be a traumatic time for animals
By John Zipperer

Tired parents across the country have read or heard about Adam Mansbach’s indelicately titled Go the F*ck to Sleep, a storybook for parents at their most stressful time: children’s bedtime. My household includes no children, but it does include two cats, neither of whom generally finds it difficult to get to sleep.

Then we moved, and one of our cats was so unnerved by the change that it seemed as if he would never go to sleep.
