When aspiring screenwriter Andrew Bloomfield moved into a bungalow in Southern California he soon discovered that he shared the property with a large colony of feral cats untamed, uninterested in human touch, not purring pets in waiting. But after a midnight attack by predators that decimated yet another litter of kittens, Bloomfield decided to intervene. He began to name and nurse, feed and house, rescue and neuter. Drawing on his time living in Asia among spiritual teachers, he takes us on the contemplative, humorous, and poignant journey of saving these cats, only to find it was they who saved him by revealing a world of meaning beyond his unrealized Hollywood dreams.
A long time student of spiritual practices, Andrew Bloomfield lived for two years in Nepal where he translated a 17th century guidebook of spiritual sites in the Kathmandu Valley from Tibetan. He has worked as assistant manager and book buyer for East West Books in Manhattan and for Snow Lion Publications in Ithaca, NY. He wrote Learning Practical Tibetan (Snow Lion, now in its 3rd printing). In Seattle, he opened his own bookstore, Infinity Books, in Pioneer Square, where he hosted many public events, including appearances by renowned Tibetan lamas, Hindu saints, and Zen masters. He moved to Los Angeles to work with a Vedic astrologer from India and wrote How to Practice Vedic Astrology with CD-ROM for HarperCollins, which was subsequently sold to Inner Traditions’ Destiny Imprint.
