Pets can be more than furry friends who have an enormous impact on the lives of their owners. Memoirs written from the cat's point of view or centered around a feline personality provide a unique perspective to our lives and relationships.
Denver is fortunate enough to have multiple organizations devoted to helping cats and kittens find a better life with caring human companions. The Cat Care Society is a cage-free shelter who also operates a thrift store called Cajun's Closet. The Animal Rescue and Adoption Society is another no-kill, cat dedicated, non-profit shelter operating here in Denver. The Rocky Mountain Alley Cat Alliance offers spay and neuter services for stray and feral cats, providing a better life for all cats by reducing the problems associated with overpopulation. Feral cats have never been handled by humans before. Divine Feline works solely with feral cats.

Which feline biography is your favorite? Is your cat companion worthy of his/her own book?
One of my favorite feline books is a fiction book told from the perspective of the cat about the humans living in his world. The autobiography of Foudini M. Cat / by Susan Fromberg Schaeffer is hilarious and very touching. I've never laughed and cried so hard during the reading of one book.
