"Finally, a book that deals with stray cats; a how-to guide to trapping and dealing with a stray cat. As a pet owner, animal lover and director of a humane organization that deals with stray cats every day, this book gives us one more tool to offer to people who want to help the thousands of strays that wander our streets. Bravo!" Joseph J. Sprague, Jr., Executive Director, Tree House Animal Foundation
"Tamara Kreuz cares about the plight of stray and feral cats and gives practical ways to help them. Individuals and shelters can benefit from this book. If those who find stray animals can themselves set about to help by finding homes for domestic strays, or by creating safe havens for feral cats, this will make life a lot easier for shelter personnel, who are all too often overburdened by the number of animals they receive. We highly recommend The Stray Cat Handbook." Louise Holton and Becky Robinson, Co-founders, Alley Cat Allies: The National Feral Cat Network
"This is a must read for those considering animal rescue work. The information and suggestions provided are first rate and are based on actual experiences." Linda A. Heller, Division Manager, Orange County Animal Services (Florida)
A Howell Cat Book of Distinction
In this scattershot collection, 20 authors who are deaf or hard of hearing provide 19 speculative stories with a wide range of themes, tones, and genres. Some of the selections explicitly feature deaf or hard of hearing characters; others do not. The overall feel is of a literary collection that relies heavily on inconclusive endings, shock twists, or dry humor. More often than not, conclusions fall flat, as in Willy Conley's "The Ear," which undermines an otherwise-satisfying buildup involving a deaf runner finding a severed ear, or Kristen Harmon's "Spirit Box," about a couple investigating Civil War ghosts. Some tales depict the hearing-impaired as a separate race unto themselves, as in John Lee Clark's "The Vibrating Mouth." There are some interesting concepts and premises here, but very few of the stories reach their full potential.
