Can work, family life, and sanity itself survive a three-legged cat’s one-track obsession?
Clayton “the Tripod” is a special-needs rescue who quickly established himself as king of the house—a “loveable doofus” and natural clown with a heart big enough for ten cats. The day he teaches himself to play fetch, however, Clayton transforms from loving lap cat to ruthless slave driver, demanding round-the-clock games of toss/retrieve/repeat from his hapless human mom. He interrupts her work, her sleep, even her alone time with her husband. But how can any loving (if exhausted!) cat parent look into an adorable feline’s big hopeful eyes and say no?
From the Curl Up with a Cat Tale series of true-life short stories from Gwen Cooper—bestselling author of the smash hit Homer’s Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale—“Stop Trying to Make Fetch Happen” is full of Gwen’s trademark humor and heart. It’s a tale sure to resonate with animal lovers everywhere.
