Last week I reviewed the memoir, Another Insane Devotion: On the Love of Cats and Persons by Peter Trachtenberg but I left out a secret.
In the book’s prefatory note, the author invites the reader on a literary scavenger hunt. Trachtenberg claims there is an artifact, an incident or detail solely from his imagination. He offers a prize to the first reader to identify the untruth.
I was delighted to learn the author has agreed to donate the prize money to AnimalKind, a small shelter in Hudson, New York. All shelters have their challenges but AnimalKind endured the worst nightmare in May, 2012 when a fire ripped though the shelter. 152 cats and kittens were saved and placed in temporary quarters. Work continues to restore the shelter at it’s Warren Street location. More than ever donations are needed, foster and forever homes. For more info about the shelter, visit AnimalKind
All the cats are rescues. They have endured abuse and abandonment. They all have a story and hope for a happy ending. Every feline is tested for FelV., vaccinated for rabies and distemper, spayed/neutered and micro-chipped. A one month free shelter care gift health insurance is provided and there is NO adoption fee.
This sad face belongs to Dory, who was rescued after Hurricane Sandy. She is a really sweet girl who is quick to purr. She is about 5 years old, part Maine Coon. She dreams of her permanent home.
So, all you super sleuths, if you think you’ve uncovered the artifact, contact Peter Trachtenberg at his website PeterTrachtenberg.com
I’ve also decided to extend our giveaway for a copy of Another Insane Devotion until next Sunday. To enter: leave a comment at the original review/author Q & A post or leave a comment at today’s post. All entries will be tallied, the winner randomly selected and announced next Sunday. Good luck!
I am an Animal Rescuer
My work is never done
My home is never quiet
My wallet is always empty
But my heart is always full!
In the game of life, I have already won!
