Tabby Cat Tales
Becky Corwin-Adams - 2013
Tabby was a real cat, born in 1965 to an animal loving family in a small northwest Ohio town. The family owned at least 14 cats over the years. Three of the most memorable cats were three generations of felines: mother, daughter, and granddaughter. Tabby was the daughter of Shadow, one of the earlier cats. Tabby was given the honor of writing her story. She remembers the details of her life as if it just happened yesterday. Tabby tells about all of the author's childhood cats: Chester, born with only three legs; Fluffy, who loved to walk on the neighbor's car; and Mitzi, the meanest cat that ever lived. Also included in the book are the tales of some other family pets besides cats: chickens, a guinea pig, a white mouse, a hamster, and a gerbil. This short autobiography includes 14 photos of Tabby and her family and friends. From the author: My cat loving friends encouraged me to write a book about my felines after I included a few cat tales in my book, "Cherished Cats and Childhood Capers". All of the stories in this book are true. Although the memories of my beloved felines have faded a bit with the passage of time, this cat memoir was written to the best of my recollection.

David Foster - 2019
Follow as the rescue of a horse in trouble attracts many who would like to help him. Feel the energy in their attempt and the family that is created by the endeavor. I think Haley says it best: “No Heather it’s not like that. It’s just the opposite. I realized that I was no longer just a project. I’m a member of a team and a proud member of this family. We came together to rescue a horse and ended up helping each other. Every one of us has suffered a tragedy that crippled us for a time. We all know what happened to you. Cole lost his wife, Abbi her mother, although she’s still alive. God only knows what happened to Scott in Afghanistan. Bobby is an orphan being supported by his tribal council. Shattered people coming together to help a horse return to the land of the living. It’s like a piece of mosaic art. All broken pieces of glass put together to make a beautiful tapestry held together by a common dream. Azarão, may be the grout that glues us together, but the frame is made of love. Love for a horse. Love for all horses and for this business. Most of all love for each other. We may think that we rescued Azarão, but the truth is … he rescued us.”
