Good Morning Good News !!!!

Isn't this nice!!!!
Author of book about blind cat makes donation to NC shelter that rescues
sightless felines
An author who wrote a book about her experiences with a blind cat is
donating $10,000 to a North Carolina animal shelter dedicated to taking
care of sightless felines. Gwen Cooper on Saturday visited the Blind
Cat Rescue and Sanctuary in Saint Pauls — a small town between
Fayetteville and Lumberton. Cooper's second book, "Homer's Odyssey: A
Fearless Feline Tale," is a memoir of life with her eyeless cat.
Shelter director Alana Miller says in a statement that Cooper has become
an advocate for special needs pets. Miller says many people have chosen
to adopt a blind cat after reading Cooper's book.
