Call Of The Cats
Call Of The Cats
When Andrew Bloomfield moved into a modest bungalow in Southern California, he was only vaguely aware that a colony of feral cats inhabited the deep foliage behind his new home. After one particularly poignant experience, he felt he had no choice but to intercede. So began the saga of Andrews dramatic relationship with this group of skittish, wild, and sometimes fierce felines. He began to name, nurse, feed, house, rescue, and neuter them. He rose from his bed in the middle of countless nights to fend off their attackers and maxed out credit cards paying vet bills and emergency room hospital visits when he was mauled by the very cats he was trying to help. Over the years, he became deeply enmeshed in the colonies births and deaths, rivalries and alliances, cliques and outcasts. It was a thankless task, with no expectation of reward. Andrew was an aspiring screenwriter, but his career was going nowhere. He had spent considerable time at the feet of spiritual teachers in India and Nepal but was uncertain how to apply what he had learned to the world of nature at her most savage. These cats wouldn't allow humans to touch them. They ran from voices or movement. They didn't make eye contact. They didn't purr. These were not abandoned, domesticated cats. These were wild animals untamed and, for the most part, untamable. Thinking he was saving the colony, in the end, it was the cats who saved him. By opening his heart and home to these untamed creatures, he found meaning in his life that the glitter of Hollywood couldn't match. Call of the Cats is a heartwarming tale of one man's journey from self-Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Âabsorption to selflessness that is sure to appeal not only to cat lovers but to pet owners the world over. It is also an exploration of the world we live in but rarely see,how our lives overlap with the lives of other creatures, and how such things as names and sibling relationships cross-species and continents. Andrew learned that spiritual lessons surround us, no matter where we are and what we do, if we stop and learn. He also discovered the joy and satisfaction in helping even one living being to a better life and the solace that comes from another living being, no matter what the circumstances.
