Heurung explains that she wrote the book and waited fourteen years before it was published. "The Nine Lives of Thomas the Alley Cat" was worth the wait: a gripping and potent metaphorical tale, which elucidates complex social issues and shares moral knowledge through the trials and tribulations of Thomas the ally cat.
Heurung says: "Each chapter describes many things that children and adults go through in their life. It shows how verbal as well as physical abuse can hurt, and love can heal."
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Jo (Ackerley) Heurung’s poignant tale is a cornucopia of wisdom weaved within the story of an alley cat's harrowing experiences.
Thomas’ life begins with heartbreak and disappointment, but through a little bit of luck, and due to his own sense of perseverance, Thomas finds himself in a better situation than he ever could have imagined.
Facing homelessness, almost dying in a fire, the cruelty of other animals, the true impact of cruel words, and other misfortunes, Thomas never gives up hope that he will find a home with someone who will love him and treat him humanely
Explaining the trials and tribulations many children face every day through the eyes of a cat, "Thomas the Cat" properly expresses the daily suffering of some, which is ignored and unseen by most.
Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase "The Nine Lives of Thomas the Alley Cat" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
