Cat rescue has blossomed in recent years, as more and more people are choosing to adopt cats from animal shelters and homegrown rescue organizations and have categorically steered away from purchasing cats from breeders. In this beautifully illustrated book, Susannah Maynard provides personality-rich portraits of cats and kittens and details their journeys from a turbulent start to a warm, loving, happy, and safe home. Cat lovers will find heartwarming and triumphant stories that point to felines’ charms and unconditional love. Her subjects include kittens, adult cats, and special needs cats―of all breeds, and of course, mixed breeds―and her stories will empower readers to join the rescue effort or bolster their efforts to increase their volunteer involvement to better the lives of rescue cats, one animal at a time.
