Super fun book about a memorable cat. I am so happy that Gwen Cooper said yes to Homer! What a story. Adventure, heroics, role modeling, courage, joy - it's a wonderful story, and true. No need to love cats, but if by the end you don't love Homer I'd be very surprised.

I love this book! This is the story of a cat that due to an infection in the first few weeks of his life, looses both his eyes. It is also the story about the love and companionship that helps him overcome this set back in his life. I have lived with cats most of my life and this book really hits home. Its such a touching story about how no matter what life throws at an animal, it still has the capacity to love and deserves a chance at life!

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Cooper had every intention of saying 'no' to the veterinarian who asked her if she was interested in adopting a four-week-old stray kitten with a 'particular handicap.' She was fresh off a bad breakup, working a low-paying job and living rent-free in a friend's bedroom — plus she was worried about the social implications of adding one cat to the two she had already adopted: 'The neighborhood kids will... say things like 'That's where Old Widow Cooper, the cat lady, lives.' ' But as soon as she picked up the tiny kitten and he started to purr, she caved. She settled on a name and brought Homer home. His intrepid explorations of his new environs quickly challenged Cooper's expectations of a blind cat. And through 12 years, six moves, several boyfriends and a showdown with a burglar, this tender and affecting book reveals Homer's lessons about love and acceptance — and how he transformed Cooper into the woman she had always wanted to be.
