We were so excited to receive Kitty Karma: Big Stories of Small Cats Who Change Our Lives for reading and review!
From the Kitty Karma website:
"Kitty Karma: Big Stories of the Small Cats Who Change Our Lives is a collaborative book with stories donated by cat rescue workers, cat sanctuary and shelter volunteers, feral colony caretakers, conscious vets, compassionate cat café owners, amazing fosters and awesome cat parents from around the world.
From cats sailing in high seas off the coasts of New Zealand and Mexico to a cat sanctuary in a war zone, from a popular cat café in Kingston, Canada to the first cat café in India, from adventure cats to feral colonies, this heart-warming and heart-rending collection unveils a world of cats rarely seen and rarely known.
Our remarkable editorial contributors include helpers dedicated to saving the lives of cats, multi-award authors, animal communicators and devoted parents who love their fur babies fiercely and passionately. What unites this diverse group of writers? Very simply, a fierce and passionate love for cats. "
Wai-Lin Terry, the creator of Kitty Karma started the Kitty Karma Books publishing company in honour of her beautiful beloved calico cat, Kealani, who crossed the bridge at just over 17 years old of a sudden heart-attack right before her very eyes.
Understandably, this sudden loss was devastating for Wai-Lin and she couldn’t stop crying for weeks. But to help her cope with the shock and pain of her loss, she went online and began reading cat forums and trawling cat websites and blogs. The shared experiences of other cat lovers and owners inspired her to put such stories in a book and so Project Kitty Karma was born with its mission to help raise funds and improve the lives of many cats and kittens.
"I believe that cats are a superior species and need to be given appropriate veneration and adulation," says Wai-Lin. "They bless us when they favour us with their attention and the world is a better place when there is a cat at home and cat fur on our clothes."
And who can argue with that? Not us cat lovers that's for sure. We are undoubtedly blessed to have these beautiful furry soulmates in our lives. They not only give us unconditional love, but they help us live a better life in so many ways.
This book is packed full of heartwarming, heartbreaking, moving stories about cats and their humans and also includes beautiful photos. Flicking through the book before I began reading, I couldn't wait to meet these gorgeous felines. I just knew their stories would be remarkable and would touch me profoundly.
And as soon as I began reading I found myself swept away on a rollercoaster of emotions. I smiled, I cried, I empathised and I fell a little in love with all the beautiful felines. (Don't worry, Athena - you will always be my NO 1.)
I admit that some stories were just too painful to read and truly tore at my heart. What some animals have to endure at the hands of some humans is just unbearable to think about. I wish I could help all the cats in the world (and all animals really.) But I am one woman and am doing my best. However what this book conveys is that each one of us can do it in our own small way. One step at a time. If all animal lovers on this planet took a little time out to help animals then how incredible would that be? Indeed, if you do buy this book you will be helping in your own special way as all net proceeds from the sales of Kitty Karma will be donated to needy cat shelters, rescues and sanctuaries around the world.
What's your verdict, Athena?
