Overview

In a world where animals are often seen as impediments to progress or expendable pests, Crazy Critter Lady is the story of one woman's determination to do the right thing for the animals around her. Kelly Meister goes out on a limb - and sometimes a half-frozen pond - to help injured birds, mice and chipmunks, homeless "Aflac" ducks, cranky horses, lost frogs and a host of others. When she's not chasing squirrels out of the road, the author waits on her five demanding cats hand and foot.

Crazy Critter Lady, a memoir, is the story of a love affair with animals. The book takes readers on an emotional roller coaster ride, as Kelly discovers the hitherto-unknown delights of friendship with a band of flightless ducks, deals with Spanky the cat's low self-esteem, and learns life lessons taught by an aged horse. The author spends money she can't afford on creatures others are content to leave dying at the side of the road, and risks rabies, drowning, and impromptu amputations in the bargain.

Crazy Critter Lady is also a thoughtful discourse on the powerful bond between humans and animals, and the lengths one person will go to, for their sake. From the three reluctant veterinarians Kelly fought to have an injured raccoon euthanized, to the lawyer she paid to defend the rights of those desperado ducks, we see inside the soul of one who is prepared to do whatever it takes - no matter how crazy that may seem.
