A Cat's Legacy: Dulcy's Story By Dee Ready

When I first visited Dee Ready's blog I had no idea how much her words would change my life.  I didn't know she'd made a successful living by using her writing skills.  I had no idea she'd written a five-star book with Dulcy called A Cat's Life: Dulcy's Story.  I didn't realize she'd once lived in a convent, or led the type of life movies are made about.
    All I know is that last August I sat at my computer, drinking a large cup of coffee as I read a hilarious posting about taxis, gutsy cabbies and dreams.  In that moment I knew I'd met a kindred spirit.
   I HIGHLY encourage you to read that post.  You won't be sorry.  And if you are drinking coffee like I was, you may spit it out from laughing too hard.

coming home to myself: Revelation

    Time passed and over the last year I've been amazed by Dee's strength, kindness and wisdom.  All these things are shown in both of her books, but especially in A Cat's LegacyThis work has become more than just a book to me--it's a foundation to give me strength.      
    The last few months have been hard.  My writing career seems direct and straight in front of me, but other obstacles stand in the way.  Should dreams be pursued without the support of others?  Well, as I've gone through so many tough choices, I've found these Twelve Habits have helped so much.  Not only does this book give parables from Dulcy (a cat the likes of which I'd love to meet), it also shows Dee's own examples of how to live life to the fullest.  I find it so intriguing what habits she picked to be among the twelve.  They have helped me AND my daughters who also cherish the book.  This isn't just another piece of literature to be read and easily forgotten--it's a shining example of how to live a happy, successful life.
     I love books, always have and I'm so thrilled to have found Dee and her writing.  I think she's one of the best writers of our time, this is because she feels more than most.  She writes from the heart and her words are those which can be read multiple times to still find new, deeper meanings.
     If you read A Cat's Legacy: Dulcy's Story, I know you'll love it.  It's a special book--the kind that will impact the reader and help nudge them along the right path, the path of love and happiness.
