    Pet Radio-The Legacy of Homer and the Story of Raising Mercury

    in Pets

    Before there was Lil Bub or Grumpy Cat, Homer the Wondercat captured everyones heart, and inspired people to appreciate handicapped pets through Gwen Copper's best selling book, Homer's Odyssey. Homer crossed over months ago, but his legacy lives on brighter than ever before. Gwen Cooper joins us in remembrance of the journey and how it changed her life and continues to inspire others.


    If you are fans of our guests and new to Pet Radio, please follow our Facebook page. In order to keep bringing quality guests to the show, we need to show our sponsors people are listening!  We are sending a care package to each of our guests favorite shelter.


    "Mercury was found when he was about 4 days old (just over 5 ounces in weight, and eyes still shut, born about September 3rd/4th 2013), and we believe he was hit with a weed whacker since people in the neighbourhood had been doing yard work in tall grass shortly before he was found. He was taken to our vet, his wounds were cleaned up, and we were then called to care for him since we do a lot of bottle babies and special needs kitties for rescues. We fed him around the clock, and cleaned his wounds multiple times a day until they fully closed over. As far as bottle babies are concerned, he was actually very calm and content, only crying when he was hungry or wanting a cuddle. He grew well, and from the very start he would move on his own."


    Mercury suffered severe injuries and has made remarkable progress. You will hear the heart warming story of raising Mercury.


    Phone lines will be open to speak to both guests. For more information about rescue cats, please visit our web site.
