DescriptionAge is just a state of mind, and if you don't take it too seriously you will last a little longer.Floy MorwayAs a child, Floy Morway knew that her life would in some way involve the care of animals. Little did she realize then that the entirety of her long life would be spent taking in, feeding, and finding homes for more than 5,000 stray cats! Earning for herself the endearing title Cat Lady of Concord, Floy begged, borrowed, and even stole cats to save them from abuse, abandonment, and worse. The Cat Lady of Concord is collection of her personal reminiscences of the joys, frustrations, and the utter hilarity of tending to a continual houseful of mischief-makers.In forty-five vignettes, the Cat Lady lovingly recounts with great charm cat tales of all sorts based on real life episodes. Not just limited to cats, there are also amusing anecdotes about coyotes, dogs, rabbits, mice, and even a turtle. But Floy's account is more than just about her crusade for the better treatment of animals. It is also about the kindhearted people who care for them. Among her heroes you will learn about her son, an anonymous caller who helped her to save dozens of cats, two naked women of Provincetown, and Richard - a crusty New Englander with a heart of gold.
