I wasn't disappointed. Urban Tigers is the story of Dr. Emily McBride's first year at the Ocean View Cat Hospital in Nova Scotia, Canada. Under the guidance of the flamboyant Dr. Hughie Doucette, Emily encounters a wide variety of cat loving clients, ranging from the retired history professor whose cherished felines only drink bottled water to the self-proclaimed cat psychic whose cat has a lot to say about just how he'd like things to be. At first, Emily is treated as the "new kid on the block" by Dr. Doucette's clients, but she quickly earns the trust and respect of the colorful and entertaining residents of the small town the clinic is located in.
Drawn from her own experiences in a feline practice, Chisholm's Urban Tigers brought back some fond memories of my years spent working in veterinary clinics. I worked at a small town clinic for eight years, and while our clients may not have been quite as eccentric as some of Emily's, it was close.
I laughed, I shed a few tears, and I couldn't stop reading. My absolute favorite story in the book is the final one, about a barn cat rescued by one of Emily's handsome male clients. I don't want to spoil the story, but let's just say it turned into a case of "who rescued who" in the end.
Urban Tigers is a novel, but it reads like a memoir.Read more ›
I want a third book, where Dr Emily McBride marries Benny and has kids along with great feline only vet practice stories :)
