A Snowflake In My Hand




Written with warmth and compassion, this is must-read for animal lovers everywhere - and particularly for all those who adore cats.

A Snowflake in My Hand is Samantha Mooney’s heartwarming account of the many years she spent working at New York City’s famous Animal Centre.
In this unforgettable story, Samantha recalls the work of a dedicated team of professionals who, faced with tragic cases of abandonment and often incurable illness among the animals they cared for, somehow managed to find both companionship and laughter in that caring. As she looks back on how the centre became a sanctuary of hope where miracles sometimes happened, she also remembers one special, tiny black cat called Fledermaus who captured her heart and showed her the risks and the rewards of daring to love again.
