520    For fans of A Street Cat Named Bob and Dewey: The Small-
       Town Library Cat Who Touched the World, Strays is a 
       compelling true story of a man who rescues a stray, 
       injured cat and how they save each other. Homeless, 
       alcoholic, and depressed, Michael King lives in a UPS 
       loading bay on the wrong side of the tracks in Portland, 
       Oregon. One rainy night, he stumbles upon a hurt, starving,
       scruffy cat and takes her in. Nursing her back to health, 
       he names her Tabor, and she becomes a bit of a celebrity 
       in southeast Portland. When winter comes, they travel from
       Oregon to the beaches of California and to the high plains
       of Montana, surviving blizzards and bears, angry steers 
       and rainstorms. Along the way, people are drawn to the 
       spirited, beautiful cat and moved to help Michael, who 
       cuts a striking figure with Tabor riding high on his 
       backpack or walking on a leash. Tabor comforts Michael 
       when he's down, giving Michael someone to love and care 
       for, and inspiring him to get sober and to come to terms 
       with his past family traumas and grief over the death of 
       his life partner. As they make their way across the West 
       Coast, the pair become inseparable, healing the scars of 
       each other's troubled pasts. But when Michael takes Tabor 
       to a veterinarian in Montana, he discovers that Tabor has 
       an identification chip and an owner in Portland who has 
       never given up hope of finding his beloved cat. Michael 
       makes the difficult choice to return to Portland and 
       reunite Tabor with her owner. Now Michael must create a 
       new purpose in his life after Tabor.The authentic tale of 
       an adventurous and charismatic cat and her compassionate 
       human admirers, Strays proves the healing power of love 
       and the profound bond between humans and animals.
