Synopsis

A remarkable cat. A life-changing story.

Making Rounds with Oscar: The Extraordinary Gift of an Ordinary Cat is the story of a doctor who, at first, doesn't always listen; of the patients he serves; of their caregivers; and, most importantly, of a cat who teaches by example, embracing moments of life that so many of us shy away from.

"Oscar has much to teach us about empathy and courage. I couldn't put it down." --Sara Gruen, author of Water for Elephants

"This book is a must-read. Truly, this is a story that needs to be told." --Fresh Fiction

"You'll be moved." --People

"This touching and engaging book is a must-read for more than just cat lovers; anyone who enjoys a well-written and compelling story will find much to admire in its unlikely hero." --Publishers Weekly

"[The] book, both touching and humorous, isn't just about Oscar. It's about listening and letting go." --USA Today
