About this title

Synopsis:

Once in nine lives,
something extraordinary happens...

The last thing Gwen Cooper wanted was another cat. She already had two, not to mention a phenomenally underpaying job and a recently broken heart. Then Gwenâ s veterinarian called with a story about a three-week-old eyeless kitten whoâ d been abandoned. It was love at first sight.

Everyone warned that Homer would always be an â underachiever,â never as playful or independent as other cats. But the kitten nobody believed in quickly grew into a three-pound dynamo, a tiny daredevil with a giant heart who eagerly made friends with every human who crossed his path. Homer scaled seven-foot bookcases with ease and leapt five feet into the air to catch flies in mid-buzz. He survived being trapped alone for days after 9/11 in an apartment near the World Trade Center, and even saved Gwenâ s life when he chased off an intruder who broke into their home in the middle of the night.

But it was Homerâ s unswerving loyalty, his infinite capacity for love, and his joy in the face of all obstacles that inspired Gwen daily and transformed her life. And by the time she met the man she would marry, she realized Homer had taught her the most important lesson of all: Love isnâ t something you see with your eyes.

Homerâ s Odyssey is the once-in-a-lifetime story of an extraordinary cat and his human companion. It celebrates the refusal to accept limitsâ on love, ability, or hope against overwhelming odds. By turns jubilant and moving, itâ s a memoir for anybody whoâ s ever fallen completely and helplessly in love with a pet.
