We’re featuring a special Sunday Selfies this week with “Kittenish,” a crowd-sourced collection of cat selfies sending up Kim Kardashian’s bestselling “Selfish.” 100% of the proceeds from “Kittenish” to Human Society International to support their ongoing animal-rescue efforts in Nepal. The 200-page book and brainchild of New York Times bestselling author Gwen Cooper (Homer’s Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat), showcases hundreds of photos of cats taken by the cats themselves, submitted by cat owners from several dozen countries and every continent on the globe except Antarctica. Like “Selfish,” “Kittenish” even contains an interior black-page section where the “sexy selfies” are featured.
Our Odin is proud to be one of the kitties featured. Cats helping cats is win win.
“Kittenish” retails in ebook format for a minimum suggested price of $3.99, and as a print-on-demand physical book for $23.99. Both versions are available for purchase on Cooper’s website http://www.hihomer.com.

The Radish Report
Shelter cat Radish used up one of his 9 lives yesterday. Eluding euthanasia by a whisker, he spent a comfortable night in our bathroom, tolerated sub-q fluids, ate and drank every few hours. 24 hours later her no longer resembles a cat on death’s door. In order to address the thyroid and liver issues, we made a special blend of prescription food, Weruva chicken gravy, milk thistle and vitamins in an easy to swallow consistency he likes. In the woo woo alternative health area, I used Rescue Remedy in his spring water, placed a Purple Plate and appropriate healing stones near him. He received several sessions of Reiki and communicated his every need with crystal clarity.
Whether stop gap or laying the groundwork for healing, he’s more alert, walking more nimbly and enjoyed warm breezes while napping in the armchair in the bedroom like a king. There was a moment in the late afternoon when I sat in bed with Merlin on my lap and Radish napped a few feet away. A feeling of peace washed over me but the skeptic in me scoffed at the notion of a miracle. Well, maybe a small one given he slept in cage 48 hours ago and a vet declared him to be dying. And prayers have been proven to work, so thank-you; something has shifted in ways beyond logic. But then again, the heart prefers love to logic.
