About the Book

The title of the book is the briefest summary of what the book is about. Mathias was a kitten born with the feline leukemia virus, a deadly disease among cats. Besides this, he was the runt of the litter and eye infections from the time his eyes opened caused him to need one eye removed, and to be blind in the other. Despite this, he grew to adulthood and lived an extraordinary life before dying at five years old. To watch him interact with his surroundings and other cats, a person would hardly know he was blind. Mathias came into my life at a time of great personal difficulty. I was dealing with the deaths of my father and both grandmothers, and also having many doubts about where my own life was heading. Simply put, he brought hope into my life when I felt life was starting to be hopeless. We formed a special bond together, and this book is about his life and how it changed mine.
