About the Author

Andrew Bloomfield is a writer living in Southern California.


"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

"Call of the Cats is like Born Free in an urban backyard, full of remarkable detail about the wild life around us and the extraordinary emotional attachments that can exist between human beings and the untamed animals that occasionally share our lives."
-- Bruce Joel Rubin, Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Ghost

"While claiming not to be a 'cat person, ' Bloomfield nevertheless is a deeply compassionate man in his interventions on behalf of the feral felines....This isn't a superficial work, and the author provides many pages of references, as well as resource websites for organizations that deal with feral animals. All in all, a very engaging and highly recommended book."
