I’ve never met Debra Denker in person, and yet, she’s become a dear friend over the last four plus years. And even though I never met her cats, either, I felt like I knew Dorjee, and felt Debra’s pain when she had to let him go after a brief illness last month.
Debra is what you would call a renaissance woman. She is an author, freelance writer, filmmaker, photographer, energy healer, animal communicator, and so much more. I first met Debra when she approached me about reviewing her book Weather Menders, a novel novel about reversing climate change through time travel, featuring a time-traveling cat named Georgie.
Weather Menders is one of those books that stays with you. A timeless love story – of love between humans, and of humanity’s love for planet Earth – the book is magical, whimsical and spellbinding. Georgie the cat is pivotal to the story, and to saving the planet, which only made the book even more special.
Georgie was inspired by Dorjee Purr-ba, who was a tiny kitten when Debra adopted him in 2005. She recently wrote a beautiful and moving tribute about Dorjee. “His motto was ‘Love Eat Play Pray’ as he was also quite the healer—often participating in energy healing sessions by lying on clients right where they needed energy.”
