Me-Now: The Adventures of Mickey the Mushing Cat
Leon Mensch / Paperback / 158 pages /
Published February 2020
These are the memoirs of Mickey who was born a stray cat with no one to love or help him early in life. Alone and hungry, Mickey tries to brave the world in search of food and shelter but is thwarted at every turn. Mistreated by cruel people and attacked by other animals, angels find him starving and injured. They rescue Mickey from the rough streets and place him in an adopted home in Vermont. Mickey finds it easy to adjust to his new life with a loving family. Then after years of enjoying the Vermont countryside, he travels across country to move to Alaska. Once on the Kenai Peninsula, his owners start a dog sled kennel and begin learning the art of dog mushing. Mickey hates snow! He isn’t very fond of dogs either. And he’s determined after his childhood never to be left alone again. One day, Mickey's daring spirit causes him to sneak out of the house and into a sled loaded on top of the family truck. There he accidentally drifts off to sleep. Later, he wakes up on the Iditarod Sled Dog Race, a world-famous race from Anchorage to Nome. Can Mickey and his team survive the 900+ mile journey in bitter cold with many frozen rivers, deep gorges, and thin ice to cross, not to mention the other dog teams on the trail that want to eat him? Find out in Me-Now: The Adventures of Mickey the Mushing Cat, Book 1: by Leon Mencsh.
