Homer and the Holiday Miracle is just another in a great series of books by NYT Bestselling author (and friend of Mousebreath's!), Gwen Cooper. We, of course, have an amazingly sweet little black cat named Homer (a name we kept when we adopted him because of Gwen's Homer), so the Homer stories are especially special to me.

"Humorous and heartwarming, Homer and the Holiday Miracle will leave you filled with the true spirit of the season. It’s the ideal stocking-stuffer for the cat lover on your list—and the perfect holiday treat for yourself. Read and rejoice!"

Hardcover, $7.54

A purrfect companion to Homer and the Holiday Miracle is Gwen's collection of stories describing her life as a cat mom: My Life in a Cat House.

Raised in a dog-loving family, Gwen never pictured herself as a “cat person.”  But from the very first feline she adopted—an adorable five-week-old rescue kitten, slow to learn how to trust after life on the streets—Gwen was smitten.  Eventually one rescue kitten became five, and all the ups and downs of a life with cats are lovingly depicted here: From the obsessive cat who teaches himself to play fetch and demands it morning, noon, and night from his hapless human mom; to the crafty white beauty who raises outside-the-litter-box thinking to the level of an art form; to the routine vet trip that turns into a hijinks-filled misadventure on the streets of Manhattan with three (VERY cranky!) felines in tow. And Homer, the Blind Wonder Cat himself, returns triumphant in new tales of life and love after worldwide fame. 

Hardcover: $14.68

This is a perfect Christmas gift for Pete the Cat fans who are eagerly awaiting Santa’s arrival.

This one is a little bit of shameless self-promotion, since one of the 12 chapters in Rescued Vol 2 was written by my very own Banzai.(as in, me) The other eleven chapters are good, too–many written by cat bloggers you know! Rescued Volume 2 tells 12 stories of cats, the humans who healed them…and how they in turn healed their humans, a sentiment purrfect for the Christmas season. As with Volume 1 of the Rescued series, the stories are told through each cat’s own purrspective. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll hug your closest furry friend.

Paperback: $13.99

The Travelling Cat Chronicles became an immediate international best seller when it was published a couple of months ago.

With his crooked tail–a sign of good fortune–and adventurous spirit, Nana is the perfect companion for the man who took him in as a stray. And as they travel in a silver van across Japan, with its ever-changing scenery and seasons, they will learn the true meaning of courage and gratitude, of loyalty and love.
