The Bobcat Who Came In From The Wild
Sobre o livro
Whenever middle-aged desert tour guide Forrest Bryant Johnson went out on his daily walks into the Mojave, all was usually peaceful and serene. But one beautiful summer day in 1987, Forrest heard a cry of distress. Following the cries, he came upon a small bobcat kitten, injured, orphaned, and desperately in need of help. So Forrest took his new feline friend home for a night. But when the little trooper clearly needed some more time to recoup, that night turned into two nights, a week, and eventually nineteen years. And so Trooper became a part of the Johnson family.
And in those nineteen years, Trooper lived his nine lives to the fullest. He explored desert flora and fauna around him, befriending kit foxes, jackrabbits, desert tortoises, and other creatures and getting into mischief along the way. Trooper became a big brother to stray tabby Little Brother, teaching, guiding, and protecting Brother on the pairs adventures and misadventures. He became a beloved patient at his local vet, and cherished housemate of Forrests wife, Chi. And Trooper even managed to melt the icy heart of a tough guy neighbor. But most of all, throughout his nineteen years, Trooper became Forrests best friend, as the two shared each others worries and frustrations, musings and rants, joys and laughter.
Harrowing and heartfelt,Trooper: The Bobcat Who Came in from the Wild is for any reader who ever had their heart stolen by their pet.
