Dewey Readmore Books, Alex and Me

You probably already know about both of the creatures named in today’s title, but just in case you don’t, here are a couple of links you can visit to “come up to speed” (hey, are we driving somewhere, or what?!)

Dewey Readmore Books

and

Alex

I’d read about and somewhat followed these two creatures over the years and was saddened by their (inevitable) passing as they occurred. So imagine the pleasant surprise I experienced when I learned there were books written about them by those closest to them… their caretakers. As fate would have it, both books were recently released and found their way to our home as holiday gifts 🙂

Both are quick and easy reads, so I read “Dewey” last Friday and “Alex” on Sunday. They’re both down-to-earth and heart-warming and are available for checkout and your reading pleasure if you’re in the neighborhood. (Joanne’s reading Dewey today, will likely read Alex soon thereafter.)

Coupla notes: Looking at Dewey’s photo’s and reading about his behaviors / characteristics, it’s pretty clear to me he’s a Maine Coon. And Alex (!), all I can say is, “Nn-uuu-tt” (when you read the book, you’ll understand.)

Both wonderful and bright creatures that I’m sure their caretakers miss greatly, but are thankful for their time together.
