I loved it when the Lynne tries to put a harness and leash on Skeeter. Since Lynne only had knowledge about dogs, I can understand why she might think what works for one, works for the other.
The book is mostly about Skeeter, but also includes some of the adventures of Lynne. One day Lynne is walking the shores of San Pedro, Calif when she found an elongated flexible cone or seedpod. Since her sister was taking a basketry course Lynne decided her sister might like to use some of the seapods. So Lynne looking up, saw that more of these littered the slope dropping from a tree at the edge of a cliff. Now climbing the cliff was easy, even gathering cones as she went. But when Lynne reached the top and turned around, she realized something. She was trapped. There was a chain link fence running along the top as far as she could see. So she abandoned her pride and skated down on her rear, blistering it in the fast descent and rubbing a noticeably-positioned hole in her clothing. It was one of those moments that ever one has encountered in their lives. It was a "Dear God, it's Lynne here and please don't let anyone see me making a fool of myslef". Thank goodness no one saw her as she stalked away with what little dignity she had left and the shreds of her jeans.
This is a fast read and reached me on a day when I really needed a good laugh. If you have had a bad day you need to buy this book and keep it on hand. Beleive me laughter is the best medicine.
For anyone who loves cats, as I do, Skeeter is a fun romp through the world of cat lovers and the cats who own them.
endaring and mischievous antics. Recommend this book for anyone.regardless of whether or not you are a "cat person".
I'm giving it 3 stars because of that. I didn't hate it, but I will probably forget this book before summer arrives. I'd recommend this book to anyone who wants a quick read - perfect for waiting rooms, and light reading for the poolside or beach.
The premise of the book sounds cute, but keep it away from the kids - this is a book for adults.
This was a delightful story of a woman, Lynne, who gets a cat and names him Skeeter. Now, this cat wasn't some circus act; he was just a regular cat, a "mutt", really. That's where the story got its charm. Any cat owner can see aspects of Skeeter in their own cat. Animal lovers of any type can enjoy the cat's antics knowing that their pet has similar quirks.
The story was told in letters to a friend, giving it a "homey" feel, as though the author was talking directly to the reader. This also gave the author a unique opportunity to develop Lynne's character to the fullest by telling of other aspects of her life that didn't necessarily include Skeeter.
Editing/Formatting: 5 Stars
Both were of professional quality.
Rating: PG - Could be okay for very young children, but I doubt they would enjoy the pace and stories involving Lynne that don't include Skeeter.

As a cat lover and the proud owner of 2 stray DSH cats I could really relate to Skeeter and his antics. The author wrote very descriptive letters to her best friend and sister. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Jalalagi girl
