My Life in a Cat House. Raised in a dog-loving famly, Gwen never pictured herself as a "cat person." But from the very first feline she adopted--an adorable, five-week-old rescue kitten--Gwen was smitten. Eventually, one rescue kitten became five, and all the ups and downs of a life lived with cats are lovingly depicted here. From the obsessive cat who teaches himself to play fetch and demands it morning, noon, and night; to the crafty white beauty who raises "outside the litter box thinking" to the level of an art form; to the routine vet appointment that turns into a hijinks-filled misadventure with three (VERY cranky!) felines in tow; And Homer, the Blind Wonder Cat himself, returns triumphant in new tales of life and love after worldwide fame. The purr-fect holiday gift for the cat lover in your life. Available in paperback now!
Homer and the Holiday Miracle. Fifteen years earlier, doctors had warned that Homer—a tiny, sightless kitten—was unlikely to survive and probably wouldn’t have much of a life even if he did. Miraculously and against all the odds, however, Homer grew into a feline dynamo who scaled seven-foot bookcases with ease, saved his human mom’s life when he chased a late-night burglar from their apartment, and rose to global fame.
Now, only two weeks before Christmas, with doctors once again decreeing that Homer didn’t have much time—that he wouldn’t even make it to Christmas Eve—Homer showed everyone that he still had one more miracle left in him. The purr-fect holiday gift for the cat lover in your life. Available now!
