Homers Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Catby Gwen Cooper (Author)
ONCE IN NINE LIVES, SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY HAPPENS. The last thing Gwen Cooper wanted was another cat. She already had two, not to mention a phenomenally underpaying job and a recently broken heart. Then Gwens veterinarian called with a story about a three-week-old eyeless kitten whod been abandoned. It was love at first sight.Everyone warned that Homer would always be an “underachiever.” But the kitten nobody believed in quickly grew into a three-pound dynamo with a giant heart who eagerly made friends with every human who crossed his path. Homer scaled seven-foot bookcases with ease, survived being trapped alone for days after 9/11 in an apartment near the World Trade Center, and even saved Gwens life when he chased off an intruder who broke into their home in the middle of the night. But it was Homers unswerving loyalty, his infinite capacity for love, and his joy in the face of all obstacles that transformed Gwens life. And by the time she met the man she would marry, she realized that Homer had taught her the most valuable lesson of all: Love isnt something you see with your eyes.
