Jay Mueller, author of "The Remarkable Adventures of Hamish the Cat," will be reading a selection from his book on Sunday, May 21 at 2 p.m. at One of A Kind Pet Rescue, 1929 W. Market St. in Akron.
After Mueller’s family lost their beloved cat, Oliver, they came to One of A Kind to look for a new pet. Here they met a kitten who was named Oliver, which they felt was a sign! Oliver was quickly adopted and renamed Hamish, and his adventures began.
Hamish the cat lives with his family in a house by a lake. Assisted by family dogs Suki and Jack, and twin felines Scooter and Bo, Hamish explores the dangers of the yard, the mysteries of human behavior and the meaning of life. Dour old lizard Eustace occasionally volunteers his wisdom from his tank beside the piano. A poet at heart, Hamish sings the glory of feline existence, absorbs the stories of human and animal alike, and brings joy to those around him. Even in the darkest hour he prevails with quick wit, good humor and irrepressible exuberance.
If you love "Wind in the Willows," are a fan of James Herriot, or wish to open a wardrobe and find yourself in Narnia, this book is for you.
Mueller will also be available to sign copies of his book, and a few lucky attendees will have the chance to win a free copy. This event is free and open to the public.
