Dewey’s Nine Lives: The Legacy of the Small-Town Library Cat who Inspired Millions (with Vicki Myron)

Dewey’s Nine Lives: The Legacy of the Small-Town Library Cat who Inspired Millions
(with Vicki Myron)
New York Times Bestseller, #7 (2010)

After the bestselling success of Dewey, Vicki Myron received thousands of letters from fans, many telling the story of their own cats. Vicki and I loved these personal stories, so we tracked down the eight most inspiring and shared them in this heartwarming book. My favorite is the Vietnam veteran whose cat Spooky was dropped by a passing owl onto this car (Spooky also later survived a bear attack), because he told me after publication that he’d never opened up about his life like that before. There are other stories that stick in my mind—the single mom who escaped a bad marriage in rural Alaska, the childless couple who ended up taking care of dozens of feral cats at the resort they managed in Florida, the girl whose best friend in childhood was her cat. The ninth “life” is a continuation of Vicki’s story, as this proudly single divorcee finds her true love—and even a new cat—even though she wasn’t looking for either.
