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.
