Аннотация

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," 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 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 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 isn’t something you see
with your eyes.
Homer’s Odyssey is the once-in-
a-lifetime story of an
extraordinary cat and his
human companion. It celebrates the refusal to accept limits—on
love, ability, or hope against
overwhelming odds. By turns
jubilant and moving, it’s a
memoir for anybody who’s ever
fallen completely and helplessly in love with a pet.
