When a video of a cat and crow playing together went viral (shown below), and was seen on The Oprah Winfrey Show, National Geographic, and Animal Planet, to name just a few, some people were initially skeptical and wondered whether this amazing friendship could possibly be anything but the result of creative editing. However, the story is true. For four years, Moses the crow and Cassie the cat met in Ann and Wally Collito’s yard in Massachussetts, delighting viewers around the world with their antics and captivating their hearts.
In Cat and Crow: An Amazing Friendship, Lisa Fleming, a former newspaper columnist and freelance writer with a passion for animals and wildlife, tells the story of how these two natural enemies became best friends. Anne Marie Dominik-Harris’ delightful illustrations add to the special magic this little book exudes. It includes educational facts about cats and crows, newspaper clippings about the story, and real-life photographs of the two unlikely friends.
In a world filled with so much strife, this book brings a message of hope, friendship and peace. Even though the book is aimed at children, adults will find it equally charming.
