They Had Me at Meow

Turtleman & Rosie


Meow is the winner of the Muse Medallion Award from the  Cat Writer's Association.

The judge said:  "She had me at her first sentence.  A beautiful little jewel of a book:  wonderful stories, valuable information about feral cats and just the right touch of humor to spice things up.  If this book doesn't prompt you to care for an abandoned cat or kitten, then I fear for your humanity.  If I could award more points, I would."

Meow also won the "Best Pets Book" award from the San Francisco Bay Area Independent Publishers Association.

     They Had Me at Meow:  Tails of Love from the Homeless Cats of Buster Hollow is a collection of funny, poignant stories (with color photos) about Rosie's 17-year relationship with a colony of homeless cats.  Meow is about connectedness and love, and about finding meaning and friendship in unexpected places.

(Rosie's) book taught me a lot and gave me sheer delight! . . . Congratulations (to her) on writing a superb paean to cats!"

       Ed Asner says, "Rosie is a great name for an author and a rescuer of furry people.  Her encounters with them are touching and comic. Rarely did I weep and if I did, it was with joy.  Thank you, Rosie."

Catherine Coulter, author of 59 New York Times bestsellers says:  "My husband tells me he wants to be reincarnated as my cat.  I think I want to be reincarnated as yours.  In the meantime, give me Buster. What a cutie!"
