I think this is a wonderful story. As an adopter of a special needs cat myself, I found it very rewarding to be the advocate for Mojo's health and needs. He has since passed away, but I know that he knew love. Thank you for sharing the story of Homer with are an inspiration.

Definitely picking this book up. Amazing how the cat adjusts like humans, probably better with its superior senses.
