Overall Feedback: I am not a cat person as I prefer dogs. However, the reader can not help but become attached to Khan and want to have this cat all for themselves. You want to jump into the story, stop it and save the cat from any further "adventure". I absolutely love Khan and would enjoy seeing him run around the house garnering my attention when and if he chooses. The reader can tell that Khan in real life was a well loved pet.

Point of View: The ability of this author to get inside of Khan's head and tell the stroy from Khan perspective is unbelievable. Makes me have chills and think of the Pet Whisperer.

Voice: The author compels the reader throughout the story with her absolute love and devotion to a dearly missed pet.

Character Development: Each and every character becomes a part of the reader and the author develops her characters flawlessly.

Plot: Although the story is told through the eyes of a pet we as the reader are completely drawn in and engulfed by the story.

Dialogue: I must have missed the dialogue in the story or I was so wrapped up in what was happening that I never thought that it did not fit.

Pacing: The reader will be so wrapped up in the story that the pace will quickly lead to the end and leave you wanting another page to devour.

Setting: I can only assume that this would be the happenings in the life of a pet but the author does well to make me believe it is possible to know what that life is like.

Continuity: I found nothing in this read that did not flow. Absolutely great read and highly recommended.

I had the opportunity to critique this author's story during its editing phase, and I am absolutely thrilled to see the final project. This is a great book, and the art (a combination of photo, original, and mixed media) is poignant and provides great visual support.

When I thought about trying to compel other readers to purchase this book, I decided that if you enjoyed Watership Down, this is your kind of book. This tale is told completely from a pet's perspective, and I really hope that our pets see us that way. Animal lovers will understand the ups and downs of a woman and her husband who love their cats, and the book builds framework for helping pet lovers get a glimpse of what goes into good pet ownership. As you read this, you think, "Wow. That's a great idea," or "I don't know how she does it with that many animals," and "Man, she has each cat's personalities nailed down." Then, not to reveal too much, the chills this book gives you are delightful and fill you with hope.

I can see this in hard copy sitting in a veterinarian's office or on a coffee table with a cat lying next to it. Little kids will love the pictures AND the story, the tweens and teens will completely get it, and adults will have the opportunity to explain a lot of their life's views and the responsibility and rewards of pet ownership to friends and family.

I did get a bit choked up when I read the dedications. I remember doing critiques in an AOL private chat room while she had to "BRB" for a cat, and I really hate it that those acquaintances from my past have moved on, but I know their owner and that they had the best life a cat could possibly have.

I wish you much success, Marie.

This is a must-read for all to whom cats are more than four paws, fur and cute. Once the emotional roller-coaster ride starts on page 1, you can't help but hold on to the book until the ride is over. If your eyes aren't misty by the middle of this story, send out a search party for your heart.

I can't say enough positive things about this book. It is told very realistically from the point of view of Khan, a beautiful cat who lives with a menagerie of other cats and his humans. I literally could not put it down, even though tears were streaming down my face at several points in the book. If you love cats as much as I do, you will love this story.

One of the best books, written in the cats' point if view, that I have ever read!
I love books written in the animals' point of view, anyway. But this one is very special. Anyone who has loved a pet very much, has cared for it, worried about it, lost it, and grieved for it will understand this book very well. Reading it will feel like being with an old, dear friend.
I got interested in it because I am now a guardian of a Maine Coon/domestic longhair mix. As I got farther into the book, though, I felt like I was understanding how Khan and his housemates felt, that is, how my own cats past and present felt. That was something I always wanted to know.
Also, I always wanted to know what happens to a soul...whether it be human, feline, etc, after, as Khan and the others call it "The Big Sleep" happens, and if, say, one of the cats I'd lost, would take the body form of a new kitten.
I realize that some of this book is a work of fantasy, and fiction, but reading it gave me a wonderful feeling about my cats long gone by. I hope everyone who reads this, that has gone through the same things will feel the same way.

This is a charming little book about a cat's world and the possibility of reincarnation. An upper elementary child who is interested in different types of cats as well as metaphysical themes such as death and the emotions of animals will be attracted to the main ( no pun intended) character.
