Born Without a Tail Paperback – March 28, 2007
|New from||Used from|
"Born Without a Tail captures the real scenario of those people who simply find it impossible to turn away, or say no to, a stray or an animal in need of human intervention and love. Wulff writes with an imagery that is easily visualized by the reader. Anyone who enjoys animals in the least will appreciate Wulff's adventures with these four-legged creatures." -- Brecksville Magazine
"If you [also] love animals, I can guarantee you will adore this gem. The love Cayr and her friend, Dalene, have for these animals is clearly portrayed in this moving yet uplifting book. They are animal lovers with big hearts for not only domestic animals but for the waifs and strays too. I couldn't put this one down. I thought it was an absolutely brilliant book, especially as I myself share the same passions as the author and her "life mate" have for animals.
This is a tale that will appeal to animal lovers and perhaps children too." -- Bookpleasures.com
From the Author
I'm sure you've heard of animal abuse...but have you ever heard about animal abuse where the abusers are the animals and the "abusee" is the human who has rescued them?
That's how some of the stories unfold in my book, "Born Without a Tail", a true-life chronicle of 20 odd years of pet rescue. 1/3 of the proceeds from sales of my books is donated to local humane group Valley Save-a-Pet for their humane programs.
The book begins by sharing the childhood and young adult stories that shaped my affinity for pets and set the stage for some 20 years of volunteering for VSAP. The rescues are stories of the abused, the abandoned, and the unadoptable animals that entered my life and ultimately stayed.

Not so with C.A. Wulff's Born Without A Tail. Wulff tells the story of her real pets and their real lives and deaths for a real reason—to remember her special dog, Dillon (who is still alive in the afterword!), and to introduce readers to the realities of life as a pet rescuer. I was more than happy to laugh and cry with Wulff and her partner, Dalene, as they learn of dogs and cats they can’t turn away, visit an animal communicator for eerily accurate readings on each animal, and hunker down to keep their multi-species family together through life’s many bumps and turns. I finished Born Without A Tail in two evenings, and I’m sure it will be a rereading favorite for years to come.
Truthfully, though I value animals highly, I don’t think I have half the courage that C.A. Wulff does. While I isolate myself from the problems that so many pets are facing in order to protect myself, she faces them head-on, and is determined to make a difference in the world. “Animal Advocate” isn’t just a label she slaps on, but a lifestyle she leads.
Aside from that, though, Born Without A Tail is a sincerely funny and heartfelt tale of Wulff’s pack. Wait until you read about how Gypsy helped herd the family cats, how Dillon made his objections clear when his small stature was discussed with a stranger, or how Troll preferred his takeout hamburgers—you’d be barking mad to pass up this book!
