WIN a Copy of the Book ‘STRAYS’

Fans of A Street Cat Named Bob will love STRAYS, a compelling true story of a man who rescues a stray, injured cat and how they save each other. STRAYS is a non-fiction book written by Britt Collins (British journalist and animal activist).

This authentic tale of an adventurous and charismatic cat and her compassionate human admirers, proves the healing power of love and the profound bond between humans and animals.

Aptly described by Gwen Cooper, author of Homer’s Odyssey, as “Possibly the most beautiful story I’ve ever read about hope, healing and the human-feline bond.”

Other notable tributes include …
