Resumen:

The Secrets of Lost Cats: One Woman, Twenty Posters, and a New Understanding of Love :

Nancy Davidson uncovers the inspiring, funny and sometimes bizarre stories behind lost cat posters, revealing how our relationships with cats compel us to both love and live with courage.

When her orange tabby, Zak, disappeared, Nancy Davidson did what countless people before her had done. She made a lost cat poster. And after days of frantic searching, she found him. Nancy was ecstatic. Zak seemed happy, too - although being a cat, it was hard to tell. Zak may have remained his old self, but Nancy had changed. From that moment on, she became acutely aware of lost cat posters.

She studied their language, composition, and design. She was drawn to their folk art. Mostly, however, she was intrigued by the messages themselves - the stories behind the posters. It wasn't long before Nancy reached out to the owners calling them to offer empathy and support. And it wasn't long before they confided in her and sought her advice. That's when Dr. Nancy, the seasoned therapist, stepped in and offered insights brought to light by her shrewd, but never self-serious analysis. What they told her - and what she learns - forms the basis of this engaging and insightful book.

The Secrets of Lost Cats traces the evolution of Nancy Davidson's passion for lost cat posters. From the astonishing, almost implausible posters she encounters across the country - and indeed, the world - to the daring, dedication, and emotional complexity of the lost cat owners themselves, The Secrets of Lost Cats provides readers with an absorbing read that illuminates love, loss, and learning to love again, even more deeply.
