YPSILANTI, MI - The true story of a cat that crossed a continent to be reunited with his family after they'd fled from war in Iraq is now a children's picture book, co-authored by an Ypsilanti resident who took part in the real life events. Amy Shrodes was volunteering on the Greek island of Lesbos in the later months of when she discovered Kunkush, a white cat who'd been lost in transit by his owners, and set off the chain of events that led to his eventual return to his family. Shrodes' hope is that the book, which was published Tuesday, Jan. The year-old had been volunteering in a seaside kitchen on Lesbos, serving soup and tea to the refugees who came through, for two to three weeks when she found Kunkush. Shrodes - who had previously worked for the Central Oklahoma Humane Society, where she played a role reuniting displaced pets with their owners following natural disasters - said she asked around to see if anyone would help her launch a reunion effort. From there, the online effort to reunite Kunkush with his owners was launched and a few months later the family recognized their missing cat on Facebook. The family - a mother and her five children - had left from Mosul, Iraq, in November , made it all the way to a town an hour and a half north of Oslo, Norway, and were reconnected with Kunkush in February
