Buckley’s Story By Ingrid King. Buckley came into Ingrid King‘s life at just the right time

Buckley’s Story By Ingrid King. When the student is ready, some human once said, the teacher will appear. Buckley came into Ingrid King‘s life at just the right time. Yes, the book has a sad end, as Buckley’s health problems inevitably doomed her to a briefer life than most indoor kitties. But it’s an inspiring story for any humans who have ever wanted to do something special with their life - if only they would listen to their cats, then maybe they could figure out how!

Buckley's Story is the story of how one small cat changed the author's life in ways she never could have imagined. In this warm-hearted memoir, Ingrid King shares the story of Buckley, a joyful, enthusiastic and affectionate tortoiseshell cat she meets while managing a veterinary hospital. When Ingrid leaves her job at the veterinary hospital to start her own business, Buckley comes home to live with her and Amber, another tortoiseshell cat who had adopted the author several years earlier. Buckley is diagnosed with heart disease after only two years of living with Ingrid, and caring for Buckley through her illness only deepens the bond between cat and human. Interspersed with well-researched information about cat health in general, and heart disease in particular, the author describes the challenges and rewards of managing illness in a feline companion, and ultimately helping her through the final transition. Ingrid shares both the day-to-day joys of living with a special cat as well as the profound grief that comes with losing a beloved animal companion. Buckley's Story is a celebration of the soul connection between animals and humans, a connection that is eternal and transcends the physical dimension.Praise For Buckley's Story "Buckley's Story is a true celebration of the bond between pets and their humans. This story of a "gimpy" little tortoiseshell cat with a huge heart who changed her human's life in unexpected ways shows us how pets teach us universal lessons about living a joyful life, how caring for a terminally ill pet can deepen this special bond, and how to navigate the devastating grief that comes with losing a beloved animal companion."- Dr. Marty Becker, "America's Veterinarian" and author of The Healing Power of Pets: Harnessing the Amazing Ability of Pets To Make and Keep People Happy and Healthy

Falling in love with and adopting four-legged friends always comes with a likelihood that their life spans will be far shorter than our own, and all too often, their time to go will sneak up on us way sooner than we can come to grips with. But ready or not, most of us will come away glad and grateful to have lived such a friendship--even one cut so undeservedly short.

This beautifully written from-the-heart love story of and by a writer and her beloved tortie cat, Buckley, reaches out in a way that may bring tears to one's eyes, but also love and warmth and wonderment to the soul and, if I may suggest...a much deserved space on one's book shelf and/or gift lists for cat-loving friends---ready to give warmth, comfort and wisdom when and wherever needed.

For the love of our cats. Buckley's Mom did everything in her power to save her baby, and her decision IS extremely hard to make, but it WAS the right one. Been there, done that several times. I always find this kind of book sort of hard to digest, brings back memories, but I also think I try to desensitize myself by reading them. It doesn't work. I'm so glad she had Fern, the vet that was so understanding and was able to come to her house when the time came. It was a good book, just sad especially at the end. Keep tissues at the ready.

I was so touch by Buckley' s story. I felt the connection so deeply as it was how l too felt with my precious Miss Kitty, Tiger and Peanut. They have all three passed over. It has been 11months since our sweet,sweet peanut has left us. I still cry and miss her terribly.
Reading this story touched my heart so very much. Thank you for sharing this story. Judith Prusinowski

I know from experience, writing about losing a dear friend (our cat) is a wonderful therapeutic way to remember them yet difficult also to face the flood of emotions as we remember the impact our loved one had on our life. Thank you Ingrid for sharing this intimate time of your life with us, to teach us that we are not alone in our losses, to give us the courage to live life and be the best we can for ourselves and our pets. I highly recommend this book to everyone, it will teach you and touch your heart, it's what we are here for, to learn from and to teach each other.

Buckley's Story is an intensely personal journey through a series of life lessons gifted to a deeply caring woman by the life and death of her beloved cat. Fortunately for the reader, Ms. King found relief from her grief in the chronicling of these lessons. The story is spellbinding, by turns uplifting, sorrowful, funny, and profound. It is also absolutely accurate; I can attest to that, because I am the veterinarian who was privileged to care for Buckley.

I love this book, for reasons that go far beyond simply having lived the story along with Ms. King. In the time I spent being Buckley's vet, Ingrid challenged my thought processes in very important ways. Her approach to medicine was very much focused on the quality of life to be gained; a goal we veterinarians all too often unintentionally misplace in our zeal to diagnose and treat. Working with Ingrid deepened and changed my view of what defines compassionate care.

Her experiences were common to many a pet owner with a terminally ill pet. Health care decisions, which many mistakenly believe are simple and straightforward, were often fraught with uncertainty. Guilt over causing stress by the act of treatment struggled with guilt over not treating. Ingrid had to learn to listen to her instincts, and to trust them; and to stand up against those who would judge her without understanding, who would try to convince her to subject Buckley to treatments that they thought were right even when she disagreed. Most of all, she needed to learn how to shed the heavy coat of dread and fear, in order to be able to share the joy of each new day with Buckley.

Buckley's Story will speak to every pet owner who has ever asked themselves, "Is it time yet?" or struggled to find the courage to do what they feel is right for their pet, even if it goes against established norms. For me, though, the most valuable lesson I learned from Buckley and Ingrid was to let go of useless energy spent worrying about what the future holds; to live in and cherish the moment; to realize that all we have is the Now, and that this is not merely enough, it is truly an abundance of riches.

Wonderful book to help deal with the loss of a pet. I recently lost my cat of four years to lymphoma. The grief has been unbearable. It is hard for others to understand the pain involved. This book showed me to not feel ashamed or silly as I grieve the death of my precious son LeBron. This is the perfect book to let other pet owners know the pain will pass and that we will always have a connection with our angels.
Ingrid,
I started crying when I picked up the book to read it. We know each other from the "memoirs" community, and I told you I had ordered your book. Well I knew that Buckley wouldn't be with us in the end of the book which is why I started reading it crying. I love cats and my two "guys" Bandit and Ringo were so much like Amber and Buckley. I commend you on such an outstanding story and what a memorial for Buckley. Buckley touched so many issues that we as human beings should learn to appreciate. You brought out the true life of a cat right in front of the reader, but along with it you brought compassion, questions we don't want to face as pet owners, joy, and most of all empathy for the reader who has gone through losing a pet.
May this book be an honor to Buckley and I'm sure he is looking down on you now winking, and I still believe every morning that Buckley is there head butting you, you just might not feel it physically.
WHAT A GREAT BOOK!
