This is a fabulous page turning book that you won't put down for cat lovers.
It's about this women who owns 2 cats and adopts a blind kitten. I can't tell you anymore but it's a true story. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Great book! Gwen Cooper also has an interesting website/blog. She is currently out promoting her latest book, Love Saves The Day, which I'm told is also good.

I don't think I give away any real spoilers in this attachment, but I wrote a book review of this one too. If you want to read the review it's on page 7 of this newsletter:

Blind kitties are amazing and inspiring. I rescued two blind cats and got them treated. They changed my life. They are like a normal cat only they don't know to jump on counters. My blind girls assimuated in with my fosters easily. Had my 1670 sq ft house memorized in one day. Learned the cat door to get to the cat boxes. Never had an accident of missing the box! I could go on and on.

Gwen put blind cats on the map. Brought Blind Cat Rescue in NC to the countrys attention. Blind cats in the past were routinely euthanized. Now the public see them differently because of her book. Its a fabulous read.

It's a great book that I really enjoyed. I have her latest book on my wish list at PBS.com but it looks like it'll be a long wait.

Me too. I'm thinking, "great read....I must be really stupid because I find that book impossible to read". LOL! I am amazed at my 14 year old, she devours books like that, all of the LOTR series, Sherlock Holmes.....and she gets them.

Maybe this Odyssey I can actually read
