Gwen Cooper is the New York Times bestselling author of the memoirs Homer’s Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat and Homer: The Ninth Life of a Blind Wonder Cat; the novels Love Saves the Day and Diary of a South Beach Party Girl; and the crowd-sourced collection of cat selfies, Kittenish (a send-up of Kim Kardashians Selfish), 100% of the proceeds from which were donated to support animal rescue in Nepal following the 2015 earthquake. Her work has been published in nearly two-dozen languages and territories around the world. She is a frequent speaker at shelters and fundraisers, and donates 10% of her royalties from Homer’s Odyssey to organizations that serve abused, abandoned, and disabled animals. Gwen lives in Manhattan with her husband, Laurence. She also lives with her two perfect cats Clayton the Tripod and his litter-mate, Fanny, who aren’t impressed with any of it.
Cat Carrier Tango
By Gwen Cooper
THERE ARE A MILLION CAT STORIES IN THE NAKED CITY. THIS IS ONE OF THEM . . .
There are days when everything seems to go wrong—days that can crack even the hardiest New Yorker: your cab breaks down, an address that Google Maps assures you exists is nowhere to be found, nobody you ask for directions has any idea what you’re talking about, you lose your cell phone, it starts to rain and you can’t find your umbrella . . . Throw in trying to get three fussy felines to their first appointment with a new vet on time, and that’s the day Gwen Cooper is having. As she treks the streets of Manhattan with her three cranky (and surprisingly heavy!) cats in tow, the real question isn’t if she’ll make it to the vet’s office on schedule—it’s whether her sanity will still be intact by the time she gets there.
A hilarious account of one long day’s wacky adventures and misadventures, “Cat Carrier Tango” is the fourth installment in the Curl Up with a Cat Tale monthly story series from Gwen Cooper, author of the smash hit Homer’s Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale. Meant to be read in a warm bubble bath, or with a glass of wine in hand, it’s sure to keep you laughing from start to finish!
