Book Synopsis

A remarkable cat. A life-changing story.

Making Rounds with Oscar: The Extraordinary Gift of an Ordinary Cat is the story of a doctor who, at first, doesn't always listen; of the patients he serves; of their caregivers; and, most importantly, of a cat who teaches by example, embracing moments of life that so many of us shy away from.

"Oscar has much to teach us about empathy and courage. I couldn't put it down." --Sara Gruen, author of Water for Elephants

"This book is a must-read. Truly, this is a story that needs to be told." --Fresh Fiction

"You'll be moved." --People

"This touching and engaging book is a must-read for more than just cat lovers; anyone who enjoys a well-written and compelling story will find much to admire in its unlikely hero." --Publishers Weekly

"[The] book, both touching and humorous, isn't just about Oscar. It's about listening and letting go." --USA Today

    I’m not a nursing or med student but this book was assigned for my psychology minor, it’s unbelievable how real life this book is. Both of my grandmothers had Alzheimer’s and I still remember the day my grandmother no longer remembered me. I was heartbroken but like this book, it teaches to remember who the person is, not what they’ve become due to their illness. Life becomes very messy when you go to visit someone who helped raise you and see fear in their eyes because they’re not quite sure of who you are. It really takes the wind out of your sails after the many visits and the back and forth of good and bad (really bad days). This book about a cat and the families really shows how complicated and simple this process is.
