“Certain to have you in stitches.” ―The Daily Mail
“Tom Cox loves cats and he's not afraid to show it.” ―Vicky Halls, author of Cat Confidential
“Tom Cox is a very funny cat addict. I laughed out loud.” ―Celia Haddon author of Cats Behaving Badly
“Readers who are devoted cat owners will relate to Cox's insights and stories and will invariably connect with him on a level that others may not.” ―Publishers Weekly
“While you may come for The Bear, you'll stay for the author; framed around the centerpiece of his personable cats, the story's true protagonist is Cox. His acute understanding of cats is entertaining and poignant, but those cute pet stories stand on the foundation of a talented and deeply thoughtful writer.” ―The A.V. Club
“These continuing stories of a man and his cats, with a dollop of humans thrown in, are worthy additions to the feline canon.” ―Booklist

Top Customer Reviews
Tom Cox is, for me, the perfect author. He is incredibly funny, incredibly poignant, and incredibly talented. I took this particular book on a trip with me and during one sad part was crying, uncontrollably, on the airplane. A concerned flight attendant came over: "are you okay? Is there anything we can do to help you?"
I recommend highly this book. It is a perfect read. My one criticism is that it was over far too soon... Oh, and that there aren't nearly enough photos of the kitties and Tom. And the toads.
At the end of the book the author lovingly writes about The Bear (the world's most melancholy cat) as a "good friend," and not being able to imagine what life will be like when The Bear is (and how we all hate this word) gone. I know exactly what he means.
I can't wait for "Close Encounters of the Furred Kind" to be available here in the States. I'm pre-ordering it now.
Thank you, Tom Cox.

Overall, a really great read. Charming, especially if you've never lived in or visited rural England.
