by Heather Cook
THE FREE-ROAMING CATS OF WNY
A book signing art Talking Leaves, 951 Elmwood Ave. 2pm Sun (7/26)
Have you ever wondered what happens to all of the stray cats? Feral cats show up in a driveway, under bushes, in a basement, or near workplace dumpsters. The cat looks disheveled and lonely. Feral Cat Stories: From Rescue to Love is a fascinating collection of true feral cat encounters in which author Susan Sellingsloh captures the struggles and joys of the people who come across and rescue these furry friends.
The collection is composed of 23 stories set in Western New York, including Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Many of the cat rescuers featured in this collection had received help from Feral Cat FOCUS, a non-profit organization providing fundamental services for feral, free-roaming strays. The stories show how the Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return (TNVR) program contributes to stopping the cycle of unwanted reproduction while also offering the cats and their new caregivers a smooth transaction from rescue to love.
This beautifully illustrated collection is eye-opening. It will entertain, educate and inspire you. All royalties from the sale of this book will go to Feral Cat FOCUS of Western New York.Come meet the author for a book signing on Sunday (7/26) and 2pm at Talking Leaves, 951 Elmwood Avenue.
A Midsummer Reading Invasion
7/27 at 7pm, Best Street between Fosdick and Masten
On Monday (7/27), at 7pm the second Reading Invasion of 2015 will occur. This time around, the bookworms are going to be gathering in a new Reading Invasion location: the Pelion Community Garden, located on Best Street directly across from City Honors. It’s a smaller, more intimate place than Bidwell Park, but Reading Invasion thinks you will love it. This event will not only draw attention to reading but also to the Pelion Garden. The Pelion Community Garden is one of those small Buffalo gems that everyone should know about. So please join us with something good to read, a blanket or chair, and anyone (including children) you’d like to read with.
