Cat Tails: Heart-Warming Stories about the Cats and Kittens of RESQCATS by Jeffyne Telson - Blog Tour & Book Review


CAT TAILS: HEART-WARMING STORIES ABOUT THE CATS AND KITTENS OF RESQCATS by Jeffyne Telson, 332 pp., Animals/Cat Rescue, $27.95
(Hardcover)


Title: CAT TAILS: HEART-WARMING STORIES ABOUT THE CATS AND KITTENS OF RESQCATS

Author: Jeffyne Telson

Publisher: Independent

Pages: 332

Genre: Animals/Cat Rescue

In 1997, Jeffyne Telson founded RESQCATS, Inc, as a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, care and adoption of stray and abandoned cats and kittens.

In the ensuing 20 years, with the help of a small group of dedicated volunteers, Jeffyne has grown RESQCATS well beyond her dreams, into a highly respected rescue organization that has placed more than 2800 cats and kittens with qualified families and individuals.

And now, she has written a book about her journey of creating a cat rescue, the challenges and opportunities she has faced, and most important of all, the valuable life lessons the cats and kittens have taught her. 


I found Cat Tails to be one of the most inspirational books I've ever had the pleasure of reading. So many of us are desperate to find ways to help cats, and Jeffyne rolled up her shirtsleeves and did something about it, building a rescue that has gone on to make a difference in the lives of countless cats in need. She's a tireless advocate for our feline friends and her passion for the cats entrusted to her care is obvious with each turn of the page. Every one of the cats immortalized in Cat Tails has left their mark on her, and in turn through her words they become a part of the reader as well. Some of these stories lifted my heart, others broke it, many left me sickened by the cruelty and ignorance of some members of the so-called human race, yet above all else they filled me with admiration for such an amazing cat lady. Anyone who cares about the welfare of cats needs to add Cat Tails to their reading list. It will give you hope when good news stories in the animal world seem hard to come by.

  1. I'm surprised my human didn't even know about this rescue, since Santa Barbara is not all that far from us. We'll have to take note of them for future donations.
