Book blurb: Autistic and Proud: What Cat Rescue Has Taught Me About Hope, Acceptance, and Never Giving Up by Zachariah Atteberry

Zachariah Atteberry, also known as the Cat Man to many of his supporters, has devoted much of his life to saving animals. He is also a vocal advocate for people with disabilities. He can relate to them—because he, himself has always struggled with a disability—Zachariah Atteberry is autistic, a man who thinks, feels, and experiences the world in ways that are unfathomable to the rest of us.

In this astonishing, empathetic book, Zachariah takes us into the mind of a person with autism. Writing from his own experience of dealing with the condition, he talks about his extreme struggles since childhood, including social awkwardness and self-doubt which made him a ripe target for bullying and harassment and his extreme difficulty with change and dealing with his emotions.

He worked hard to understand and make the most of his autism and went on to become a veterinary technician and a certified cat behavior consultant.

Told with candidness and authenticity, Zachariah brings his unique perspective to the circumstances of his life and his condition.
