Mr. Bo Finds a New Home and a New Name by Timothy Battle - Review & Giveaway

"Mr. Bo Finds a New Home and New Name" by Timothy Battle is the true story about the rescue and adoption of Linus from a local Humane Society shelter.  'There it was in big letters for all to see: Recommendation: Adopt.' He really was a nice, special male cat, and he knew soon he would be leaving this small cage for a large, comfortable house with his real name.' A stray cat temporarily named Linus is living in a cat adoption center dreaming of the day someone will take him home.  Join Linus in his story, told by his loving pet parent, of rejection, adoption, and knowing that your day to head to your forever home will come.


With my home full of adopted animals, and knowing that I would take more if I only had the time, Mr. Bo's story reminded me of the adoption of my oldest cat, Bailey, now 14.  If Bailey were telling his story, it might be very similar to Mr. Bo's story!  "Mr. Bo Finds a New Home and New Name" is such a sweet tale of rescue and adoption!  If you've ever adopted a pet or had one show up on your doorstep refusing to leave, you'll understand that they pick you!


Mr. Bo Finds a New Home and a New Name"Mr. Bo Finds a New Home and New Name" can be purchased at Mr. Bo Books and Amazon [Tate Publishing (ISBN 978-1-60696-938-0)].  Read more about Mr. Bo and find out if Timothy Battle and Mr. Bo will be coming to a bookstore near you soon on their webpage or facebook page!  For a limited time, you can order personalized autographed copies through the author's webpage!

Our first cat chose our family as his even though we had a dog already. We gave him away twice to "cat lovers" and he came back to us. Somehow on the last return trip, he travelled about twenty miles and crossed a river. We decided he had earned his place in the family.

The book will be for my grandsons who are animal lovers too.

Post # 1 by me failed to include that he was with us over fifteen years.

Our family's first cat adopted us even though we already had a dog. After looking for quite some time for his owner, my dad begrudgingly allowed him to stay. Guess who became the cat's best friend? It wasn't the dog!

I never rescued a dog or cat, but we did have a squirrel that would come to our front door that we kind of adopted. I guess that's what happens when you feed a squirrel. This book looks cute. I'd love to win it for my niece. Thanks!

MANDATORY ENTRY: When I was younger, my mom and I use to adopt cats from the pound or we would take in strays. My mom and I always had a bleeding heart for homeless cats and/or doggies. It's so sad!

If I am lucky enough to win this giveaway, I will give this book to my daughter, AFTER I read it...of course. hee-hee-hee-hee! =)
