Told by Ragdoll cat, Mr. Jazz, Purr Prints of the Heart is a touching meow-memoir written to help comfort those who have had to deal with (or will have to deal with) the inevitable loss of a beloved pet. Delving into the human-feline relationship with candor, wisdom, and humor, Mr. Jazz puts readers into real-life situations they can relate to and empathize with - from his early days as a kitten that nobody wanted, to finally being adopted into a loving human and multi-pet filled family, to his final months when his health was declining and he had to deal with things like frequent visits to the vet, being force fed food, resentment issues, litter issues, and the finality of coming to terms with the fact he was dying and needing to convince his beloved humans to let him go.
The ending is a welcoming upturn, a refreshing reminder of the celebration of life and the indelible purr prints cats leave on our hearts and includes an invaluable "Coping With Pet Loss" section to help readers on all levels - emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and even physically to empower themselves with ways to positively honor the journey of the pet lost as well as ways to find the strength to heal and mend a broken heart.
