ONCE IN NINE LIVES, SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY HAPPENS.
The last thing Gwen Cooper wanted was another cat. She already had two, not to mention a phenomenally underpaying job and a recently broken heart. Then Gwen’s veterinarian called with a story about a three-week-old eyeless kitten who’d been abandoned. It was love at first sight.
Everyone warned that Homer would always be an “underachiever.” But the kitten nobody believed in quickly grew into a three-pound dynamo with a giant heart who eagerly made friends with every human who crossed his path. Homer scaled seven-foot bookcases with ease, survived being trapped alone for days after 9/11 in an apartment near the World Trade Center, and even saved Gwen’s life when he chased off an intruder who broke into their home in the middle of the night. But it was Homer’s unswerving loyalty, his infinite capacity for love, and his joy in the face of all obstacles that transformed Gwen’s life. And by the time she met the man she would marry, she realized that Homer had taught her the most valuable lesson of all: Love isn’t something you see with your eyes.

This is an amazing book. Not only is it heart warming, but it tells the story of a beloved cat who beats the odds by overcoming being blind. This has to be one of my favorite books, and it should be your favorite, too!
Great. Homer is a trip. I love cats, having 9 now. Would love Homer as 2 of my cats each have 1 eye. Read this book!!
From one cat lover to another...
Thank you for sharing Homer with the world.
Even if you're not a cat lover, you need to read HOMER'S ODYSSEY for the sheer joke de vivre of this little cat and his humans.
