#WalterStrong: One Family’s Desperate Attempt to Save Their Beloved Cat from Cancer
By: David I. Antokal
About the Book
A combination of life experiences, love, hope, strength, and grieving, #WalterStrong is as the title suggests: one family’s desperate attempt to save their cat, Walter, from cancer. Discover the special—and unusual!—bond between a man and his cat; how he loved and was loved more than words can describe; the “GOAT” (Greatest of All Time) Feline.
Come along with David I. Antokal and his wife on a rollercoaster ride as they fight like hell to save their fur-baby, providing protection and a voice to the voiceless, and learn from their experiences.
In sharing their journey, Antokal hopes to educate readers on the challenges of vet care when dealing with potentially terminal illness, as well as provide solace for those whose fur-babies may be facing a potentially life-ending experience, and for those who may have said or be in the process of saying goodbye to their beloved fur-babies. To all veterinarian readers, he offers a reminder that people put a lot of faith and trust in their work along with the expectation of top-notch and cutting-edge medical care.
Because our “pets” are not just pets. They’re family.
