Love Saves the Day

It's finally here! "Love Saves the Day", the second cat book by New York Times bestseller Gwen Cooper and author of the memoir "Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat". Christine reviewed the latter book years ago which inspired her to champion for black and disabled cats.  Hence our black cat logo and the Black Cat gala.  Today we received an email from Gwen Cooper asking us to share the news of her latest book release with all of you, to keep educating and uplifting the world with cat love! See the video below for a preview. 


News of this book release is music to our ears. As a nonprofit for cats, we often receive calls from individuals who are trying to find a home for a pet cat that once belonged to a deceased parent. Often the son or daughter or relative state that they can not keep the cat. "We just can't" or "It would not work in our household because of the dogs..." Excuses pile on. We encourage the person to give it a chance and ease their mind by offering some tips and guidance for bringing in a new cat.

We are so excited about this book and highly recommend it to any person who has taken in a cat from a parent or friend who passed away. "Love Saves the Day" is a story of hope, healing, and how the love of an animal can make all of us better humans. There's a wealth of scientific evidence that shows that cats and dogs and other pets make us better humans.

It’s the story of a mother and daughter divided by the turmoil of bohemian New York, and the opinionated, irrepressible feline who will become the bridge between them. It’s a novel for anyone who’s ever lost a loved one, wondered what their cat was really thinking, or fallen asleep with a purring feline nestled in their arms. Prudence, a cat like no other, is sure to steal your heart.

  3. This is one of the most beautiful books I've read in a long time. And I love that Gwen is doing a shelter tour, instead of a regular book tour, to promote it.

  5. This is high on my list of must reads!!

  6. It really sounds like a lovely book, the kind of book you have to finish before going back to any other activity (except feed the cat, of course).
