This book is well written and endears you to this very special feline. Homer is blind but that doesn't stop him from being fearless and adventuresome. I felt so close to Homer that I really empathized for some of the trials he had to face. Sometimes I was even mad at the owner for crowding him and her other 2 cats into a small studio apartment for years, but it has a happy ending, so I forgave her. If you ever considered getting a disabled cat, this will convince you its worth it.

A very good tail about how an unwanted blind, black kitty finds his way in the world and affects everyone he meets. The humans involved are changed by thier relationship with him and learn about thier worlds through him. Heartwarming, honest and poignant. A book you will read in one sitting, then start over to read again!

Incredible true story about a blind cat, but , what a smart, courageous and funny one! I read this during my vacation, and I couldn't put the book down. Started with a kitten striken by badluck whose eyes had to be removed. Nobody wanted to adopt him. Game over for him from the poor start. A generous soul (the author!) adopted him, and it was amazement from then on. A (cat) lifetime of a strong friendship through thick and thin with Mrs Cooper, hours of pleasure to read. I cried and laughed, sometimes simultaneously. If you're a cat lover, it's a must.

True story of a small, black cat who is totally blind but has such a highly developed sense of smell that he can leap in the air and catch flies. Would make a delightful movie.
