TO CATCH A CAT, HOW THREE STRAY KITTENS RESCUED ME
VIDEO INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR HEATHER GREEN:
Heather Green is a freelance writer. An award-winning journalist, she wrote about technology for Businessweek. Her first book, To Catch a Cat, is a memoir published by Penguin (July 2016), and it’s not what you think.
With a busy career at BusinessWeek Magazine, at the height of her professional life, and at a dizzying time in the internet economy, Heather Green made a rather arbitrary decision that changed her life.
This decision tapped into her urge to help, get involved, act. As a journalist, that was a natural urge. But this was more. Because rescuing the three kittens and finding them homes got Heather involved within a community of neighbor’s, new friends in the rescue community in the area, and others who cared as she did. Heather started creating real roots and a feeling of belonging—something she hadn’t had for a big part of her life growing up as a military brat who moved every two years.
Is this what life is all about? Certainly it is part of it, and the questions Heather began to answer provide answers to us all.
In my interview with Heather, she says: “From saving three wild cats in my boyfriend’s backyard. That experience taught me so much about connection–to a community, to myself, and to my boyfriend.”
Please join me and Gretchen Vogelzang, former long time MommyCast & MommyCast Latina founder and podcasters, as we chat with Heather Green about her life, her redemption and what she learned about how the people you need find you when you’re doing something that matters to you.
