Buckley's Story

Herndon, Virginia (PressExposure) October 12, 2009 -- In the spring of 2005, author Ingrid King met Buckley. All it took for King, a long-time veterinary hospital manager, was one look at the small homeless cat, and she fell in love. Hard. And Fast. Soon, her life was transformed. In King’s warmhearted memoir, Buckley’s Story, she shares the story of how – rather unexpectedly – one tortoiseshell cat touched her life forever.

King had recently lost her “office cat” Virginia when a co-worker suggested she take a look at the newest arrival to the veterinary clinic. King fell head over heels for Buckley, an eight-year-old cat with a deformed hind leg and an unknown history.

“This little cat was pure love in a small, feline body,” says King in her book. “She loved being in my arms, and I loved holding her. When I held her, I felt like my entire being melted. I was a goner.”

Buckley’s presence in King’s life leads the author to make major changes in her own life, inspired by the lessons this little cat taught through her joyful spirit and huge heart – universal lessons that readers can apply to their own lives. But after only a few years, Buckley is diagnosed with advanced cardiac disease.

In the following chapters of Buckley’s Story, King tells of the sometimes heart-wrenching, sometimes joyous final months of Buckley’s life. The human-feline bond is an unbreakable one, and King retells the story with poetic grace. Buckley’s Story is a celebration of life and a reflection of the never-ending love that anyone who has ever loved and lost a pet can surely relate to.
