To see that I’m doing a giveaway of Tatianna: Tales and Teachings of My Feline Friendmay surprise some of you.
To say that I’m not much of an animal lover is an understatement. But before you start sending hate mail my way, please understand that I’m allergic to many four-legged friends. So it’s not so much of a dislike as it is a desire to stay healthy that keeps me away.
That being said, I wanted to be able to share the tale of Tatianna with you all, animal lovers and haters alike. This award-winning book so cleverly written by my friend and former colleague, Linda Mohr, is more than just a tribute to her feline friend, but a life lesson for so many of us.
I asked Linda to describe the book in her own words:
People often ask me how this book developed. The day after my beloved Tatianna passed away I sat down with a spiral notebook. The pen was flying across the pages. I did not know where the thoughts were coming from. But I continued writing. Later I realized I had a message for people and pets.
The memoir shares my daily relationship with Tatianna. She was in the circle of my life for almost sixteen years. Her imprint and impact were powerful. She taught me many lessons including savor the present moment, appreciate an ordinary day, and celebrate extraordinary accomplishments. Her most important lesson was to love unconditionally. Through the special human-animal bond we shared, we created miracles.
