Gwen Cooper’s “Curl Up with a Cat Tale” Series is the Cat’s Meow

I read a lot of cat books every  year, and while I enjoy most of them, the ones the ones that stay with me even years after I first read them are few and far between. Gwen Cooper’s books are in that small group. Her New York Times bestselling memoir Homer’s Odyssey, A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wondercat, was published in 2009, followed by Love Saves the Day in 2013. In 2015, Gwen released the sequel to Homer’s Odyssey, Homer: The Ninth Life of a Blind Wondercat. All of these are the kinds of books that not only warm your heart, but actually touch your soul.

I look forward to anything Gwen writes, and while I’m not a huge fan of short stories (I always feel like they end too fast, just when I got into the story,) I was delighted when Gwen announced the publication of a series of short stories, Curl Up with a Cat Tale. The monthly series features humorous and heartwarming short stories about the ongoing adventures of Gwen’s feline family. I reviewed the first story in the series, I Choo-Choo-Choose You, and the second story, Stop Trying to Make Fetch Happen, in May.

I’ve since fallen a little behind. Gwen also published The Picasso of Pee and Cat Carrier Tango. They’ve both been sitting on my Kindle, waiting for me to read them. I know they’re going to be just as wonderful as the first two stories in the series.

Individual stories in the Curl Up with a Cat Tale series are available on Amazon, Nook, etc., or you can make a one-time payment of $14.99 to get all the stories for the whole year at a 60% discount off the retail price – and you know you’re going to want to read the whole series.

    I may try these books I don’t read in general but I remember I use to like to read where animals were involve.

    I wish I had an e-reader or a printer here, I read the Christmas short story on my notebook, but it was difficult to find back to the page where I had stopped reading the day before because you can´t set any bookmark, but I read the German version of “Homer´s Odyssey” (Homer und ich/Homer and me) a few weeks after Homer-Bear had crossed the Rainbow Bridge because then the original version hasn´t been available on German Amazon yet, also not in foreign books, but the sequel has been directly after it had been published, and a few months ago I also read “Love Saves The Day”, the novel from Angel Homer´s mummy Gwen, I love each of the 3 books and can only recommend them to each and every cat lover, or to each and every animal lover at all, I even read several times on FB yet of people who´re normally “dog people”, but read (at least) “Homer´s Odyssey” and have been amazed either!!!

    This collection of short stories also makes a great gift. I ordered them for my mother and she is enjoying them very much.
