Really, who rescued whom?

There's no feeling quite like that of getting a second chance and a fresh start. When we adopt a homeless cat--or that cat decides to adopt us--we're not just giving one of earth's most beautiful and inscrutable creatures a chance at a good life, we're giving ourselves the gift of companionship, solace, and love. And plenty of laughter too!

This heartwarming collection includes more than thirty true, contemporary stories of people finding their cats and cats finding their people. Each feel-good story involves cat rescue, some in a typical way and others in surprising--even miraculous--ways.

So brew a cuppa and curl up with your favorite feline. Second-Chance Cats is the purrfect companion for cozy nights, lazy weekends, and any time you need a pick-me-up.
