Cat Diary For Cat Lovers (In The Event Of Accident Or My Death) by Theodocia McLean.
Dear Cat Lover,
I could never imagine (not would I want to) my life without a cat. Even as a child, I had a cat and some years a cat and a dog for pets.
The idea for this Cat Diary stems back twenty-five plus years. Circumstances beyond my control was forcing me not only to move to another state, but I couldn’t have a cat where I was going.
My pressing task was to find a new home for my beloved male cat named Greybow. I bought a notebook and begun writing everything I knew about Greybow’s likes, dislikes, medical history (as he had lost one leg due to an accident), and everything that made him special. Next, I put an ad in the local newspaper. A day passed before a local college student called and asked if she could visit Greybow. She came over to the house and immediately wanted Greybow. She moved here to attend college and she was homesick for her family and lonely. She had an apartment that allowed cats and so she decided she needed a furry friend. Before we moved ahead with the exchange, I asked her to take the notebook home and study it before she made the final decision. She called in a couple of day and asked if she could adopt my Greybow. She said she had read his diary and was convinced he would be the perfect companion for her. I say my goodbye and watched her drive away with my precious Greybow. Before she left, I gave her my new address and asked her to write, so I would know that Greybow was settling in well. A couple of months later, I received a long letter stating how wonderful Greybow had settled in. She said she was no longer lonely as he was her shadow and stayed close while she studied long hours. In my heart I knew that the diary had played a huge role in guaranteeing the successful transition for both her and Greybow.
These many years later, I created this workbook to help you and your precious furry friend(s) find a new home. You might find your situation mirrors mine so long ago. Perhaps illness has driven you to this decision or a family member has died and his or her cat needs a new home.
I would never wish on you the agony of needing to place your furry family member in a new home, but if it needs to be, I hope this workbook brings you comfort and the new owner much needed information to make the transition seamless.
It is now 2018 and my shadow is named Wolf. He was a shelter cat, adopted before six month and returned to the shelter. When I found him in 2011, he was in a large room of cats, curled up all lone on a corner piece of carpet. I picked him up, turned him over, and held him close to my chest like a baby. He looked up at me with the lonely eyes and started purring. My heart melted and I knew he was the furry one. Someone had already named him Wolf due to his gray color and pointed ears. He was and is adorable. He is now age seven and the king of the house.
This workbook would not be complete unless I stated that Wolf has endorsed it. Wolf is my loving shadow and I have talked through every word of this notebook with him and he gives his full approval.
Wolf and I realize that if you are using this workbook, it is because you love your furry friend and want to provide for him or her even when you can’t be around. We wish you and your furry member of the family the very best in health, love, cuddles and the transitions that life brings.

Her love for writing began when her fifth-grade teacher captured her imagination with creative writing assignments while she was living away from home in a harsh, punitive private school environment. A song that she sings every day is the only link that she has to Clara, her one special friend, who made daily life bearable for a short time in that dreadful place. She longs for the day when someone, even a stranger, will show her the proof that she desperately needs on whether her friend really died that terrible day.
Her book DID: True Story Of Survival describes the first twenty-three years of her life with vivid detail and uncompromising honesty.
