"Catwalk, A Feline Odyssey" is the story of Tiger, a young, comfort-loving tabby cat, the cherished pet of Sam and Beth, a young newlywed couple.
Then trouble strikes in the form of Donna, the couple's new baby. Feeling neglected and more than a little jealous, Tiger misbehaves and is soon relegated to being an outdooor cat.
When she herself becomes pregnant, Beth insists she be disposed of, so Sam drops her off at a nearby industrial park.
Alone, and with her babies due any minute, Tiger suddenly finds herself adrift in a big, impersonal, and occasionally hostile world.
Her odyssey ultimately takes her halfway across the continent, and brings her in contact with such diverse characters as a feminist warehouse worker, a Cajun fisherman, a game warden and his wife, a trio of hoboes, and a Mexican-American family.
She is befriended by many, abused by some, but her indomitable spirit always carries her through. Her struggle for survival and her search for home and family is a story animal lovers of all ages will want to read and share.
