Homer’s Odyssey:a Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat by Gwen Cooper

Feb 2, 2010

The couple who brought the sick, abandoned kitten to the vet were of the opinion that he should be put to sleep. But the vet felt otherwise and restored him to perfect health, with the exception of his sight. She then set about finding him a loving, permanent home. That home was found in Gwen Cooper.

Despite her low-paying job, tenuous rental situation, and the two cats she already had, Gwen was immediately smitten. The story will be familiar to anyone who’s a sucker for a furry face, but one thing that sets Gwen’s story apart, aside from the challenges presented by Homer’s blindness, is her experience living in New York City during the September 11th attacks.

And, of course the adventures of moving and finding love as a crazy cat lady will resonate with pet lovers. Those who passionately enjoy reading about animals and pets will find a good read with Homer.
