Secrets I Learned From Ordinary House Cats
Award winning writer Rosemary Augustine is the author of Secrets I Learned From Ordinary House Cats. The book is a series of quick verses, often poetic, serious and then outrageously funny, that sends every feline to the front of the line for wit and wisdom for life. Ziggy and Zack demonstrate a talent that translates into valuable life skills for humans in our everyday living.
Who is Ziggy and Zack? The story begins with six kittens who were born to a feral momma cat somewhere near Berwyn, PA in the spring of 2005. Not long after the momma moved her six kittens to a safer location, she was found dead in the road… leaving behind her 5-week old kittens. Fast forward their rescue by a local vet technician and introduction by a pet sitter, and within hours of meeting, the author returns home with two male kittens – a grey striped tabby and a black and white tuxedo … later that night to be named Ziggy and Zack.
It goes without saying, Ziggy and Zack made a difference at a very significant time in the author’s life. Instantly they bonded as family. However, as kittens, these two felines were quite a handful and at three months old, demonstrated tricks about life that gave anyone instant pause. As a result, the reader will look at life from a very different perspective as ordinary kittens change into adult cats. As the author says: “It took my breath away, and in the end, I decided to reveal their secrets.”
