Homer: The Blind Wonder Cat

Monday, August 26, 2013

HI, Everyone,

I recently had the great pleasure of reading a book entitled "Homer's Odyssey" by Gwen Cooper. It's about a blind cat and the person who loved him. For anyone who is a cat lover or animal lover in general, this is one of the best books I've read. If you've already read it, I'd love to know your opinion.

Have a great Monday!!!

SPOILER ALERT: For those who know Homer's story, I'm sorry to announce he died at sixteen years of age last Wednesday. Gwen had him put to sleep at home and he died in her arms. emoticon

    Thanks for the recommendation. I'm always looking for books about cats and dogs to read. Wonderful to hear that he lived 16 years all the same

    I've had 3 cats die in my arms - One of which was around 23 years old! It hurts every time - like losing a child and takes a long time to recover from the loss :(
My heart goes out to anyone who is experiencing this loss now.I don't remember the story of Homer, but I will look it up.

    Pets, no matter which kind, dog, cats, farm animals, birds, all take a special place in my heart, and any time I loose one, I cry. For the cat to live 16 years is remarkable, but it still hurts!
