The Cats of Sanctuary House tells the stories of the many lost and stray cats who have come to live in a unique courtyard community at Sanctuary House in rural Maryland.
The cats have arrived here for many reasons, and all too often they are thin, ill, unkempt, or starving.
Each day, as they have for the past twenty years, the Sanctuary's doors are cheerfully opened to newcomers by Sister Mary Winifred, a superb caregiver, and a patient and keen observer.
Sister Mary lovingly recounts the stories of each cat with exceptional objectivity and sensitivity, letting their feline behaviors and interactions create the plots of these tales.
The result is a wonderful collection of portraits that reveal the amazing diversity of cats, and lessons about universal values and behaviors that will warm your heart.
The Cats of Sanctuary House insightfully portrays a joyful place where cats live to chase butterflies, and where a favorite treat, like a slice of cheese, is seldom overlooked.
Sister Mary cares for their physical needs, yet she provides them, and you, much more in this thoughtful, endearing book.
