“Dewey's Nine Lives is a celebration of people and their cats. This is a touching series of biographies of both the humorous antics and the struggles of people and their cat companions. The stories teach us that it's okay to deeply love our cats and mourn their passing. Our culture doesn't always understand the enduring emotional connections between people and their pets. This book wonderfully acknowledges them.”
-- Fran Wilson, Colorado State University Bookstore, Fort Collins, CO


Description

Vicki Myron follows up her #1 New York Times bestseller Dewey with stories of cats who inspire their owners- includes two brand-new Dewey stories!

Dewey is back with more heartwarming moments and life lessons to share, all told from the perspective of Dewey's "mom," retired librarian Vicki Myron.

From a divorced mother in Alaska who saved a drowning kitten on Christmas Eve to a troubled Vietnam veteran whose heart opened to a rescued cat-to two new stories featuring Dewey himself- these stories demonstrate the power animals have to touch and alter the course of our lives. This edition will also include a new, real-life story from a fan that highlights how a cat has touched his or her life.
