A book of Zeus & Phoebe, two ginger cats, who have amazed thousands with their love and devotion for each other in full color photos.

A few words from David regarding this project:

This is a heartwarming story about a man and a dream. The dream began almost four years ago when I adopted a tiny ginger kitten.  I soon realized that Zeus needed a companion to play with while I worked. Shortly afterward, I adopted another kitten who I named Phoebe.  Thus began the story of Zeus & Phoebe....

As a semi-professional photographer, I took photographs of Zeus & Phoebe because I love my kitties so much.  It was only in retrospect that I realized that I had documented a wonderful story unfolding on the pages of their Flickr account.  Now I am working hard to self-publish this story of the love of two special cats through Kickstarter.com. Following the success of this project, I plan to create a DVD of the book that will be donated to schools for visually and hearing impaired children. 

This video is about my project.  A full color, hard cover book for animal lovers. The Passion of Zeus & Phoebe: A True Love Story will be an 8.5" x 11" mini coffee table, landscape style, book printed on an off-set press with 100+ full color, glossy photographs, a full-bleed cover, front and back, and a sewn hard binding.

This book tells the tender love story of two of the most adorable, loving, intelligent, and obedient ginger tabbies that you will ever meet.  This incredible story will appeal to all ages. Their sweet devotion for each other is lovingly expressed through words and stunning photography. As with people, it wasn't exactly love at first sight; but with time it blossomed into an endearing saga of two soul mates on a journey through life. You'll marvel at Zeus who became a doting father of 12 ginger kittens. You will be moved by Phoebe's gentle mothering of two adopted kitties along with her own. Her unending devotion to her soul mate, Zeus, and his love for her is an inspiration to all.

Cat lovers the world over will be thrilled to own a copy of The Passion of Zeus & Phoebe: A True Love Story.  Page after page you'll be drawn deeper into the love story of two ginger tabbies that were destined to be together, soul mates for life. The special love expressed between Zeus & Phoebe has moved readers to laugh and cry tears of pure joy.

The Passion of Zeus & Phoebe: A True Love Story will be printed on full-glossy 100# paper of Library Quality.  This book will be an outstanding addition to everyone's personal library.

The Passion of Zeus & Phoebe: A True Love Story will have an ISBN (barcode) number and Library of Congress number, which means it can be sold through book stores and found in Public Libraries.
