I bought this book as a Christmas gift for my daughter and had to read it before wrapping it. (Oh, don’t roll your eyes at me, like some of you haven’t done the same?!?) It is the true story of Homer, a cat who lost his eyes as a kitten and the adventures he has in growing up and living with Gwen. A little bit of a spoiler alert here: although Homer is alive and well at the end of the book I still found myself tearing up. A good read and perfect choice for my daughter who is a vet tech.
