    Sensitive and Helpful

    I came across this book while attending a national conference for my professional organization. I generally do not purchase books at these meetings but this book was too wonderful to pass by. At the time, I had rescued to beautiful cats and, having a houseful already, was in the process of finding adoptive homes for them. I knew that my son would be very upset since he adores our cats. Although only 2 1/2, he loves this book. Unfortunately, we just had to have one of our cats euthanized due to a sudden and serious illness. We read this book for two nights and he was able to tell me the story in his own words. When our cat died, he was able to be present for it. We will continue reading this book. It is a must have for every vet's office as well as for those who love their pets.

    An ideal book for anyone who has lost a pet.

    As a book reviewer for Funseeker's Radio Network I read a lot of books for children. This one helps with the process of saying goodbye to a treasured pet and getting used to another, sometimes more different, pet. In this case Charlie has had a long and happy life as 'the best cat in the world' for young Victor. The boy is devastated when Charlie dies and doesn't think he will ever want another cat, but Charlie's vet, Dr. Levin calls him and offers him a new kitten. He accepts reluctantly and soon finds that Shelley is a different cat altogether. Her habits and ways are not like Charlie's, but he finally realizes that he again has the 'best cat in the world.' The story is well-written and the illustrations by Ronald Himler are excellent. I would recommend this book highly to anyone who has lost a pet or as a gift for someone who is dealing with the death for a pet.
