Overview

The cat who seeks you out and finds you. The cat in need of rescue who rescues you in the process. The cat of a lifetime. This is the true story of a cat named Frodo, who chooses as her unlikely companion a struggling graduate student—a young lad from the Midwest unprepared for the steep learning curve of being adopted by a cat, but earnestly big-hearted in his willingness to learn. Frodo surprises her beloved “oaf” with a series of precariously delightful misadventures from which she requires repeated rescuing, including an unexpected and zany kitten named Brandy, a fall into motor oil, an insane mouse, and leaps onto rooftops from which she can’t get down.

Frodo teaches her owner—a man immersed in the rigors of political science and the life of the mind—attentiveness to happy moments, as well as the compassionate gift of giving and receiving unconditional love. Throughout their years together, Frodo grows from a small pregnant stray with a limp waiting on the steps of a student rental in Norman, Oklahoma, into a little white princess ensconced within her very own castle on Glencove Avenue in Bangor, Maine—a tender and purring soul with a home, a man, and a family that grows up around her.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Bangor (Maine) Humane Society and the South Dakota Heartland Humane Society.
