Nine Lives

Sad news this week from Breakwater Headquarters: Isaac, the real-life bob-tailed cat who inspired the Adventures of Gus and Isaac books, passed away this past Sunday.

The storybooks, written by Isaac’s owner Debbie Hanlon and illustrated by painter Grant Boland, imagine the hijinks and friendship between Isaac the Bob-Tail Cat and Gus the Seagull-Who’s-Afraid-of-Heights.

Real-Life Isaac was a real cutie. Gotta figure he’s moved onto life # 10 now, wouldn’t you say?
