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 Gwenâs veterinarian called with a story about a three-week-old eyeless kitten whoâd been abandoned. It was love at first sight.
Everyone warned that Homer would always be an âunderachiever,â never as playful or independent as other cats. But the kitten nobody believed in quickly grew into a three-pound dynamo, a tiny daredevil with a giant heart who eagerly made friends with every human who crossed his path. Homer scaled seven-foot bookcases with ease and leapt five feet into the air to catch flies in mid-buzz. He survived being trapped alone for days after 9/11 in an apartment near the World Trade Center, and even saved Gwenâs life when he chased off an intruder who broke into their home in the middle of the night.
But it was Homerâs unswerving loyalty, his infinite capacity for love, and his joy in the face of all obstacles that inspired Gwen daily and transformed her life. And by the time she met the man she would marry, she realized Homer had taught her the most important lesson of all: Love isnât something you see with your eyes.
Homerâs Odyssey is the once-in-a-lifetime story of an extraordinary cat and his human companion. It celebrates the refusal to accept limitsâon love, ability, or hope against overwhelming odds. By turns jubilant and moving, itâs a memoir for anybody whoâs ever fallen completely and helplessly in love with a pet.
