Two Books to Check Out if You Love Animals

Are you an animal lover?  Do you like true stories about animals?  

If the answer is yes then I have two fantastic books you should check out! 

125 Pet Rescues
This is a collection of hilarious and heartwarming stories of dogs, cats, and all types of pets given a second chance, and the human animal lovers who rescued them.
From the dog who saved her owner from a fire, to the cat that plays the piano, to the cow that thinks it's a dog, discover incredible stories of animals in need who went on to become beloved pets.
These uplifting tales are paired with amazing photos and loads of animal facts. Kids learn all about how to be kind to our animals friends and the importance of being a responsible pet owner. There's tons of furry, fluffy, feathery fun on every page, including tips on how to help save animals in need!

I couldn't get enough of this book!  I love a good animal rescue story, and this is an entire book about them.  It of course has rescue stories of cats and dog, but there are also stories about rescued bunnies, reptiles and goats.  I think my favorite was the story of Nudge who was a stray cat and rescued by a nice man.  Nudge paid the family back by rescuing them from a house fire.  Lucky the pig was a great story as well.  He fell off a truck and was rescued! And lastly the two guinea pigs that were abandoned in traffic!  Wonderful heart-warming stories.  Loved them all! 

Cat Tale: True Stories of Kindness and Companionship with KittensBy: Aline Alexander Newman
We humans love our cats and these surprising true stories will prove our cats love us back! This collection of tales of playfulness, friendship, heroism, and inspiration is sure to touch the soul, tickle the funny bone, and inspire animal lovers everywhere to be the best kitty caretakers and companions they can be. There's Bambi, whose owners taught her to respond to commands in American Sign Language; Millie, who loves exploring the outdoors and goes rock climbing with her owner; Leo, a rescued lion who changed the life of one South African family forever, and more

I love cats.  I grew up with the best cat.  His name was Moses, and he was a big old mouser that also knew how to snuggle.  We shared my saltine crackers all the time.  This book has wonderful stories about strong, independent smart cats and the people who loved them.  I really liked the story of Humphrey.  He was adopted into the house of the Prime Minister of England as a mouser.  Later he was falsely accused of killing four baby robins but everyone rallied to prove he was innocent!  Loved that story!  
If you like cats you have to look into this book.  

There you go - two great books for any animal lover you know - young or old.  

And to end - here is a picture of my sweet pets:
