Dewey: by Vicki Myron with Bret Witter
God works in mysterious ways his wonders to perform. Even sending a tiny kitten, stuffed into the return slot of the local library in Spencer, Iowa on the coldest day of the year. Dewey as he would come to be called, showed his enormous capacity for love, gratitude, caring, and yes…healing, from the moment Vicki Myron, the library director, pulled him from the return slot and saved his life. Once bathed and dried off, Dewey was revealed as a very fluffy and beautiful orange tabby. Myron, a single mother who had survived so much already was the first to fall under the spell of this gift from heaven, but not the last. Over 19 years as the cat of Spencer, Iowa’s Public Library, Dewey never lost his charm and loving ways, nor his ability to know who most needed him. Not even after gaining local, state, and even worldwide celebrity status. This heartwarming story is a reminder of the amazing capacity pets have to improve and change the quality of our lives. If you don’t consider yourself a cat lover that’s okay. But then again, Dewey’s story might just lead you to change your mind….
