RIP, Homer 1997-2013


Homer, the eponymous star of the New York Times bestseller, Homer’s Odyssey, has gone to the Rainbow Bridge. He’d suffered from a liver problem for some months, but was generally active, with a healthy appetite for fresh deli turkey, until He was helped to The Bridge by a gentle house-call vet, and he passed peacefully in Gwen’s arms.

Gwen donates 10% of her royalties from Homer’s Odyssey to rescues and shelters that serve abused, abandoned, and disabled animals. She’s also in the process of creating the Homer’s Heroes Fund, which each year will contribute a portion of the proceeds from all my books to a shelter, sanctuary, or rescue group doing outstanding work on behalf of special-needs animals. Homer was an ambassador for these animals, and it’s a legacy that Gwen is trying to keep alive.

Her new book, Love Saves the Day –a novel about a New York family, narrated by a rescue cat named Prudence–will be released in paperback on October 22nd. For every copy of the Love Saves the Day pre-ordered or sold between now and October 27th, she will donate 100% of her royalties to Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary in Homer’s name.

  1. Max,your so right,that dood did make a difference and he’ll be touching the lives of a lot more kitties to come! His legacy will live on thru Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary.Gwen will be donating her royalties from her book.Hey Max,please don’t go anywhere for years to come,okay?

  2. So sad to hear of his passing. Purrs and hugs for Gwen. That is wonderful she is donating the monies from her book to BCR. I lost my kitty yesterday too.

  3. When I first heard about Homer heading for the Bridge, my first thought was Skeezix there to give him head bumps. I’m really bummed that Homer had to go, but man, he lived a nice long life and the things he did for blind kitties and even just black kitties is freaking amazing. I’m sad for his people, but the dood make a difference in this world and leaves a real legacy. I am truly glad that Gwen shared him with us and wish I’d gotten to meet him.
