Gwen Cooper, My Life in a Cat House


Gwen Cooper

While Gwen Cooper – a crazy cat lady in the best of all possible ways – was in town, she stopped by to talk about her newest book “My Life in a Cat House: True Tales of Love, Laughter, and Living with Five Felines on my WGN Radio Show.

First, HEAR Gwen talk about Homer, the blind cat who was the subject of her New York Times bestseller “Homer’s Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned About Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat.”

We talk about dealing with a blind cat. Is it easy to live with one? And how do you introduce a blind cat to the household?

We also talk about the intensity of the bond living with a pet with special needs entails.

We discuss the term ‘crazy cat lady,’ and that – Gwen Cooper says – is sometimes insulting to women, and she explains.

We also talk about how cats have changed Gwen’s life.

We discussed Touched by an Animal, a non-profit to support the elderly keeping their pets. And also the Windy Kitty Cat Cafe.
