While this is not a perfect book ( dare I say purr-fect?) by any means, I have to give the author 5 stars for her writing voice. Even if you are not an animal lover, specifically cats, to begin with, I know you can enjoy the predicaments this devoted mother finds herself in and the tough decisions she must make. Not to mention the consequences of those decisions!

I appreciated several of her special terms, including Gateway cat, Spare cat and serial cat acquisition.
I empathized each time she uttered those words "Of course, it couldn't last" and when she took The Meatball for "only" a couple of weeks, um, years? And the store bills and internet acquisitions just because it would MAYBE make the fur child happier. (Note to future new kitten owners, like small children, often they find the empty box and wrapping paper better than the gift.) Her descriptions of walks with Lucky and Meatball are preiceless.

This was a fun break in my day and made me smile.

As a life long cat person I always enjoy reading cat stories! Enjoyed reading about your "temporary" houseguests along with the permanents.

How fun of the author to focus in on life with kitties! It's a charming tale from start to end.

You must be a feline lover to appreciate. You can understand all the moves encountered. The poor woman wouldn't have coped with ex-hubby around.

This is cute little pamphlet, but very short. And it doesn't contain stories about cats, but rather stories about the author's choice to adopt cats. By all means, get it while it's free, but don't pay for it: you will be disappointed.
