Shadow Cats

( 1 )

Overview

At the foot of corporate skyscrapers and high-rise apartment buildings, New York City's homeless felines have formed their own society. Some once knew the comfort of human care and companionship, but most were born into a world remote from the gentle domesticated house cat. Considered by some to be a scourge to be eradicated, these "shadow cats" have won the hearts of many others-particularly a fiercely protective group of New Yorkers whose mission is to help them survive.

Overview

At the foot of corporate skyscrapers and high-rise apartment buildings, New York City's homeless felines have formed their own society. Some once knew the comfort of human care and companionship, but most were born into a world remote from the gentle domesticated house cat. Considered by some to be a scourge to be eradicated, these "shadow cats" have won the hearts of many others-particularly a fiercely protective group of New Yorkers whose mission is to help them survive.

Animal rescuer Janet Jensen is among the very few New Yorkers who have been granted entry into this amazing, undiscovered feline subculture. Her initiation into this world landed her an unexpected series of adventures with these wild, yet lovable, creatures. Previously inexperienced in animal rescue, she learned how to work with-and outside of-the "system" to protect her cats from the dangers of life in the city.

Janet Jensen shares her adventures with cats in various states of wildness: Mimi, Tammy, Seymour, Luna, and Wily-as well as a colorful cast of human characters she meets along the way. Her vivid accounts ensure that you'll never look at a stray cat the same way again!

Janet Jensen lives in New York City and works as a writer and editor specializing in environmental issues. She has a weakness for felines in distress.

    Outstanding view of New York's 'street' cats and their caregivers.

    As relatively new caregiver to suburban feral cats, I could not put this book down. In fact, I immediately bought a second copy for a friend who also cares for these 'shadow cats'. Jensen expresses the compassion of caregivers without sentimentality, yet with great emotion. I became even more inspired after reading 'Shadow Cats'. I highly recommend to all who love and care these special cats.
