Author Lisa Fleming with Wally Collito and Cassie.
Everyone in the U.S seems to have flown the coop for the weekend so we’ll keep this short and sweet. Back in January, I reviewed a book I fell in love with Cat and Crow: An Amazing Friendship based on the real life friendship between Cassie, a cat and Moses, a garden variety crow made famous by this Youtube video. Both the book and the author are beautiful, charming and promote a deeper understanding of animal welfare.
Lisa Fleming, a Florida based writer did a wonderful job capturing the unique interspecies friendship in her beautifully illustrated book. I think the reason the story resonates so powerfully is the universal message of friendship regardless of age or species.
Lisa and I clicked as birds of a feather do, and I was thrilled to meet her in Florida this past winter. Since then we’ve bonded over our mutual love of cats and their welfare. Lisa has worked tirelessly doing book signings, volunteering and working at a cat sanctuary we’re both involved with. Lisa Fleming is working hard on her next book. Cat and Crow is available at Barnes & Noble.
We’re delighted to offer our readers Cat And Crow book giveaway for one autographed copy and a handmade origami bookmark of Cassie the cat by the talented book’s illustrator, Anne Marie Dominik-Harris.
