Finally a book about cats by a truly good author, one we've come to depend on.
My Life in a Cat House by Gwen Cooper (Homer's Odyssey) was delightful. Gwen Cooper really knows cats! And she loves them to pieces! Since patience has never been one of my virtues I pre-ordered this from Amazon. It's only available in hard cover right now, or on Kindle. You'll learn more about not only Homer, but Scarlet and Vashti, the two cats Gwen had when she adopted Homer. You'll also meet her two current kitties, gotten while Homer was still alive, Clayton and Fanny. Ms. Cooper has a hilarious way with words. I found myself laughing out loud and even wiping away a tear or two. Each chapter shows, at the beginning of the chapter, a photo of each one of her cats. I spent three wonderful evenings reading this book. Well spent!
Ms. Cooper has another book out that has been out a year or two. I just haven't been able to afford it. Ir's called Kittenish and is a take off on the numerous selfies of Kim Kardashian- gack! I mean to order it as soon as it's available used. Meanwhile, if you've never read any of Gwen Cooper's books, start with Homer's Odyssey, go on to The Ninth Life of Homer the Blind Wonder Cat, and then pick up Love Saves the Day - all books about a cat or cats - all wonderfully written, a couple of which will make you reach for an entire box of tissues, but well worth the tears. It is so much fun to have a book worth reviewing - or even worth reading for that matter.
You can order it new on Amazon, find it at Barnes and Noble, and on Kindle. Not in used book store yet. May you experience the delightful anticipation of sitting down with a book you know you are going to enjoy - one of the most satisfying of thoughts! Happy reading!
LFFAC adventures, stories and maybe even a cute cat video every now & then.
