Local Author Releases Book - Cat Tales: A Spiritual Journey
Ambler, Pennsylvania—December 2012 marks the official release of a book by local author Harvey Bevitz that has been 10 years in the making. Cat Tales: A Spiritual Journey chronicles the author’s journey through life after a painful divorce and tells how his pet cats taught him life-altering lessons. The story is told through the eyes of various narrators, including Bevitz and his many cats. Funny, touching and heart-warming, Cat Tales: A Spiritual Journey will lift the spirits of animal lovers and anyone else who has gone through a major transformation in their life.
“Surrounded and constantly exposed to my companions brought a new perspective to my life,” says Bevitz. “I have applauded and been influenced by their demonstrations of courage, their manifestations of love, friendship, and above all else, their supreme joy in the living of life.” Each chapter of the book chronicles a different cat or cat family. It tells their tale from how they first came to Bevitz, to their integration with the rest of the pride, and the lessons learned along the way.
Cat Tales: A Spiritual Journey is available for purchase through the website at www.cattalesaspiritualjourney.com for $6.99. Animal rescue organizations that help sell copies of the book can earn 11% of the sales as donations. It is one of Bevitz’s goals to use social media and his book to connect as many animal rescue organizations as possible. Through sharing of information and resources he believes that all of the organizations can benefit.
After getting divorced from his wife Rita, Harvey finds himself wandering through life, lost and not sure where to go next. Through his work with cat rescue groups and his willingness to house strays in dire need of help, he becomes known as the “Cat Man.”
It turns out though that he gains so much from caring for the cats he rescues that he often wonders who rescued whom?
“This story reveals how six cats became eighteen and how, in that process, a man found his soul.” says Bevitz. Lessons learned on this journey include trust, play, patience, certainty, and finally, transformation. Along the way Bevitz also discovers Kabbalah.
At the end of each chapter of the book there are two sections. The first summarizes the teachings of the tale told in that chapter. The second is a workbook section intended for book club members to use as a guide when discussing the chapter and its lessons.
