Mrs. Soles's childhood friend and writer Jesse Miller related his unique experience with Sarge, his son's cat. Sarge was left in Miller's care as his nineteen-year-old son, Taylor, was deployed by the US Army to Afghanistan. After only six weeks of military service, nineteen-year-old Taylor was killed by a female suicide bomber, and Jesse became Sarge's permanent caregiver in Spout Springs, Virginia. One night at the RV campsite in Spout Springs, Virginia, Jesse noticed Sarge sitting in the middle of a circle of cats as if he were special. This formed the idea for an amazing children's story. When Jesse purchased the cat from a pet store, he was told that the orange-and-white-striped Egyptian cat had been named Sarge. As Jesse thought about Egypt and Sarge, the story of a pharaoh turning two servants, Meo and Cleo, into time traveling cats came to be. At one time the cats had been human. Why had the two servants turned into cats? Everyone knew that cats were sacred in Egypt and were protected for life. The death penalty was ordered for anyone who killed a cat. Meo, the male cat, was set adrift on the Nile, while the female cat, Cleo, was imprisoned in the royal palace. It was apparent that Meo and Cleo loved each other and could never be happy apart. Could there be some mysterious connection between Sarge and the Egyptian cat Meo? As you read the exciting story, you will learn why Sarge was revered by a group of strange cats as he discovers his destiny and his place in history. Follow the two cats on their journey to reunite after being banished by the pharaoh.

Connie Soles majored in voice at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina, with a degree in music education. She also holds an MA in counseling from Hampton University. While in college, Connie played Maria in "West Side Story" her freshman year. Her many experiences on stage as well as in piano, ballet, and tap lessons have equipped her with unique teaching abilities that have made her a very successful and popular teacher. Her teaching skills were challenged when scheduled with classes of autistic children. Teaching special-needs children requires a trial-and-error approach, which she believes is the reason that she was and is flexible, has honed her sense of humor, and is willing to try almost anything to reach student needs. Connie created a one-of-a-kind curriculum and became a distance learning instructor teaching children how to write original songs on a Macintosh computer and synthesizer during twice-a-week live educational broadcasts. Because of this telecourse, she was invited to Moscow, Russia, to teach Russian teachers of gifted Russian students the use of technology in the American classroom. Connie was named national teacher of the year for technology with this original curriculum developed on a Macintosh computer and synthesizer, although the contest was sponsored by IBM. Upon retirement, Connie created a nonprofit organization, AudioHope, using a very specialized music-based intervention called Auditory Integration Training (AIT) to treat ADHD and autistic clients, yielding amazing results. Nineteen-year-old client Andrew Porter, a charming young man with ultrasensitive hearing problems, was encouraged to draw during his AIT sessions. The results were astonishing. Andrew is a computer arts major and is very gifted in cartoon art. This unexpected union of talents was the impetus for writing an intriguing children's book about time traveling cats of ancient Egypt.
