"With humor and wit,
Call of the Cats illustrates the perils and rewards of rescuing animals that live at the margins of human society. If you have ever cared for an animal, this book will resonate with you."
Marty Becker, DVM, America's Veterinarian and author of Your Cat: The Owner's Manual
"Andrew Bloomfield's heartfelt memoir is not just about his unconditional love for the feral-cat colony that he came to know and adopt. It's also a much larger portrait of how we can live with, and gently support, animals, who are all at our mercy."
Patrick McDonnell, creator of MUTTS and illustrator of Guardians of Being
"Great writing is great storytelling, and Andrew Bloomfield is a great storyteller. This book is, in a word, stunning!... Buy it for every cat lover you know, as well as every 'not yet' cat lover. If this book doesn't win them over, I don't know what will."
Amelia Kinkade, author of Straight from the Horse's Mouth
