"My heart was touched by Blessings From My Cats; thank you, thank you for the lifeline you provide for so many cats and continuing to remind us of our spiritual connection to animals."-Sonya Fitzpatrick, Radio Show Host, SiriusXM, Animal Intuitive, TV Host of Animal Planet's "The Pet Psychic" and "Pet Psychic Encounters", Author, What the Animals Tell Me and Cat Talk "Blessings From My Cats" is a collection of short stories about the rescued cats that share the author's home and the feral cats that depend on her in the wild. Author Janet S. Dumas became drawn to cat advocacy after her visceral reaction to a chilling expose in the newspaper about the thousands of animals being gassed to death each year by the City of San Antonio, Texas. She knew she had to take action, thus beginning her adventures into the world of Trap-Neuter-Return and caring for cats near her, both feral and domestic. Janet shares her experiences as a feral cat colony caretaker, how she came to understand the individual cats, and the relationships they built together. She also shares her newfound commitment to adopting stray cats, realizing the enormity of the feline neglect that has become common in cities across the nation. In fact, she didn't adopt any of her cats from a shelter-she had her pick of alley cats merely by walking outside her door. The author takes the reader through the myriad of emotions she experiences in caring for the cats-from unmitigated jubilation to the depths of sorrow to a level of compassion that she never knew existed within her. "Blessings from My Cats" provides a window into the secret lives of cats in the wild, and the surprising ways these cats demonstrate their profound appreciation for their humans on a daily basis, delighting and resonating with cat lovers of all ages.
