Every chapter in MOOSHIE is a hoot. Each has a story wilder and crazier than the last. Echo and Mooshie have been thru so much together over the years …it’s non stop laughter! You’ll love the story about the “kitten suicides” and Dr. PetMe. Trust me, you need this book! -Amazon Review
A lonely writer. A suicidal kitten. Together they were the perfect interspecies couple.
On Mother’s Day, 1984, the author sets out to find the perfect solution to the 12-inch Norwegian wharf rats routinely invading her creekside cottage. Enter Mushu Pork With Pancakes, a.k.a. Mooshie, the Burmese cat with an unusual penchant for dry sherry, English Breakfast tea and mayhem.
It doesn’t take Heron long to realized that her new feline companion is a true eccentric. With his quirky mix of personalities—Gandhi, Houdini, Einstein, Mel Brooks and Vlad the Impaler, the feline charmer wheedles his way into his human’s heart. When the pair embarks on an extended nomadic adventure, cat and human cement a powerful loving bond while braving hurricanes, stalking cougars, automatic gunfire, and deadly rainforest amphibians.
Written in Heron’s trademark style combining humor and vivid imagery, MOOSHIE is an action-packed love story between an unconventional cat and his flawed human.
Echo’s ability to take fact and turn it into funny is a joy to read. I am not a cat person but I recognized the strength of the relationship between human and feline. I had a canine version of Mooshie during my 20s and the stories still live on. I read this book on Kindle and immediately bought the print copy to be sent to my sister (who is the original cat lady). I intend to read this to my reading group at a local assisted living. I know that it will be a hit. Thank you, Echo. -Amazon Review
