New York Times bestselling author Beth Stern is back with another inspiring story, as Buddy the blind foster kitten joins Yoda and his friends for a heart-warming adventure!
Yoda is busier than ever in the Foster Kitten Room, taking care of litter after litter. Buddy, a blind kitten who is recovering from eye surgery, has been with Beth and Howard longer than any other foster kitten, so Yoda takes him under his wing—or paw—and makes him his fostering partner! While Yoda grooms and scolds the naughty kittens, Buddy is the cat they cuddle up to and adore, mimicking his every move, with no clue he is blind.
One day Frankie, a new foster, is introduced and from the very first moment, none of the kittens like him. Oversized ears and an unruly cowlick make him look goofy. But Buddy loves this new little guy and helps the other kittens see all of Frankie’s goodness and sweetness. And when they discover Buddy is the kitten with a true disability and challenge, the other felines learn that love truly is blind when we see each other with our hearts.
Beth Stern’s love for animals is her passion in life. Her 2014 children’s book, Yoda: The Story of a Cat and His Kittens and 2010 book Oh My Dog were New York Times bestsellers. She is the proud foster parent and spokesperson for North Shore Animal League America, the world’s largest no-kill rescue and adoption organization. In addition to her animal rights activism, Beth has hosted shows for National Geographic, HGTV, Spike TV, and Hallmark Channel’s annual Kitten Bowl and Hero Dog Awards. Beth lives with her husband Howard and their six rescue cats, Apple, Walter, Leon Bear, Charlie, Bella, and Yoda. And of course, litter after litter of foster kittens!
