Cats who don't look "purrrfect" are discarded treasurers. That is why I chose Ruby, a one-eyed black cat, to play the heroine in my series of children's books to be published in 2023. My books aren't for everyone. But if you have a child that is unique and different (or you yourself are unique and different!) then you will love these books! Sorry, purrfectionists, Ruby is not the kind of kitty you will notice at the shelter that you can't wait to adopt. She is a discarded treasure. And only the super compassionate, sensitive people will notice her.
