This is a really lovely book. For catlovers especially there will be many stories that will no doubt sound familiar to them. The book is divided into categories of cats (for example, Adventurous) and within each of these categories a specific cat is featured. Each story describes how the cat’s owner came to have it and then goes on to talk about the special ability that sets them apart from other cats.
The quality of the writing in this book is really good and very pleasurable to read. I found myself having a laugh at some of the stories and touched by others. There is something here for every cat lover. Some of the stories include: a rock climbing cat; a school traffic warden; a bus riding cat; a seeing eye cat for the family’s dog; there’s even a story about a lion! I absolutely love this book and believe it is a worth while read.
