Meticulously wrapped in pink tissue paper (why, oh why did I forget to photograph it!?, No worries!! I may have forgotten to photograph it but Diana didn't!) I found a photo that shows how the book was wrapped on Diana's Facebook page!

It is the kind of children's book cover that causes you to handle the book ever-so-gently in an effort to not mar its' beauty. I lovingly touched it and gazed at the cover which is so pretty that it beckons you inside...
This delightful children's book is simply captivating,
inside and out.
The sherbet colored cover, as well as the hand-painted, water color illustrations throughout the book carrying on the delicate sherbet, blush-like hues, were all painted by Chandler Strange.
Sal Finds A Forever Home, was written by Diana Alvear, and is based on Diana's real-life kitty of the same name, who was her "soul kitty." It tells the story of Sal as he waits at the shelter, hoping to find his forever home.
While the book is geared towards children, ANYONE who has adopted and loved a cat will be deeply touched by the magic that happens when a cat CHOOSES US. We just know.

"Sals Pals:Salvatore Valentino Alvear was quite the little cat. He stole Diana's heart in 2003 while waiting for his forever home at the Washington Animal Rescue League. Together they crisscrossed the country, making many friends along the way. Sal was a special needs kitty - he had a heart murmur & took pills for his hypothyroidism every day. That didn't stop him from charming both cat and non-cat people (who quickly realized they were cat people all along!) He would hang out during parties & welcome people with a pat from his paw. While he was not a big cat, he was the Alpha male in any room, regardless of cat or person.
