When aspiring screenwriter Andrew Bloomfield moved into a bungalow in Southern California he soon discovered that he shared the property with a large colony of feral cats -- untamed, uninterested in human touch, not purring pets in waiting. But after a midnight attack by predators that decimated yet another litter of kittens, Bloomfield decided to intervene. He began to name and nurse, feed and house, rescue and neuter. Drawing on his time living in Asia among spiritual teachers, he takes us on the contemplative, humorous, and poignant journey of saving these cats, only to find it was they who saved him by revealing a world of meaning beyond his unrealized Hollywood dreams.

I loved this book. The author is a very humble and inspiring man. Caring for a feral cat colony takes someone who is very dedicated and he certainly is. I loved his story and also learning some history about cats and also his spiritual journey. This is an all around enjoyable book, quick read, wish it had been longer, wish I knew what is happening to all of them now.

I loved this book. The world of feral cats is harsh and unpredictable. I really felt the struggle of the author as he tried to spiritually deal with life and love with his feral colony. I found the struggle familiar. Cats touch some people's hearts and souls and this tells the story of several people and a group of cats opening their hearts and souls to each other as much as they can. Well done.
