Rescued: The Stories of 12 Cats, Through Their Eyes

Rescued: The Stories of 12 Cats, Through Their Eyes, our anthology of real rescue cat stories, as told by the cats themselves, is coming out in print and ebook on Tuesday January 27, 2015.

From the back of the book: “What do a cozy mystery star, an award-winning blogger and a library expert have in common? They are all cats… once homeless cast-offs that were living on the streets or in the wild. Cats that people ignored, or worse, abused. But at some point, fate stepped in and changed the lives of these three cats and nine others. Rescued contains the true-life stories of these cats—but each one is told through the feline’s own point of view. Human authors might have made these stories too saccharine and sentimental, but when they are viewed through the cats’ own eyes, they become funny, tragic, earthy and inspiring. This collection was carefully compiled and edited by renowned author and publisher Janiss Garza.”

Praise for Rescued:

“The stories of these 12 rescue cats are inspiring and moving, and hearing them through the cats’ own perspective is a particularly interesting experience. I know Henri would approve.” — Will Braden, Creator of Henri, le Chat Noir

“The cats in Rescued have overcome obstacles and gone on to enrich and improve the lives of humans and cats alike. These tales of resiliency and love are sure to inspire — a must-read for cat lovers.” — Angie Bailey, author of whiskerslist: the kitty classifieds and Texts from Mittens

“In the pages of Rescued, be prepared to learn about 12 very determined twenty-first century cats who have a lot to say about life with us two-leggers. Be prepared to giggle, gasp a bit and definitely applaud these fine felines who teach us the value of being kind, being candid and living in the me-NOW. This is a must read for anyone fortunate to share their lives and hearts with a feline or two.” — Arden Moore, author and founder of Four Legged Life.com

“By approaching these stories from the perspective of these cats, Rescued reveals the nuances of cat rescue that will make you revisit your own experiences in a new light. — from the Foreword by Kate Benjamin, founder of Hauspanther LLC and co-author of New York Times Bestseller Catification: Designing a Happy and Stylish Home for Your Cat (and You!)
