Here are 5 kitty books for your summer reading list. 

1. Bono: The Amazing Story of a Rescue Cat Who Inspired a Community

If you like underdog stories, you'll love this one! Helen Brown had been eagerly looking forward to her month of vacation in New York. She wasn't planning on being a foster mom to a needy cat, but fate intervened. A friend talked Helen into visiting the Bideawee cat shelter in Manhattan. There, she met a spunky Persian cat who had survived Hurricane Sandy. Bono needed daily medications, a loving home, and a lot of TLC. According to Kensington Books, "She didn’t know that he would change her life in ways she never dreamed possible and teach her lessons she would cherish ever after." You can purchase this book on Amazon.

2. Strays

"When a homeless man met a stray feline, it led to an odyssey that changed their lives forever." -New York Post

In this inspiring true story, you'll meet a man who was trying to drown his sorrows in alcoholism. One day, he was found by a lost cat named Mata. She had wandered too far from home and found her way to Michael King's makeshift camp outside Portland, Oregon. 

Feeling compassion for the lost cat, King started taking care of her. He named her Tabor, after the café where he found her. A few weeks later, Michael left for his annual trek to California. Of course, he couldn't leave Tabor behind. They embarked on a remarkable adventure across the USA. However, 10 months later, Michael took her to the vet. And he received heartbreaking news. You'll have to read the story to find out more (and the heartwarming ending)! You can purchase Strays on Amazon.
