Best Cat Ever (2 Cassettes)

Library Journal - Library Journal
The story of Polar Bear, the stray cat rescued by Amory in 1978, began with the best-selling The Cat Who Came for Christmas ( LJ 10/1/87) and continued with The Cat and the Curmudgeon ( LJ 8/1/90). It reaches its inevitable conclusion here. However, readers expecting multiple cat stories and a continuation of the Amory-Polar Bear antics may be disappointed. Most of the book concerns Amory's reflections on his life (i.e., his class reunion at Harvard) and his views on humane issues (not surprising when you realize he founded the Fund for Animals). Luckily, Amory is a very readable writer, and he is able to present his sideline comments and musings without appearing to stand on a soapbox. Two highlights of this volume are Amory's response to his classmates' appeal for a donation to their class fund and the final chapter, with his heartfelt perspective on pet loss. Despite its rambling style, The Best Cat Ever will have animal lovers everywhere lapping it up like a bowl of warm milk.-- Edell Marie Schaefer, Brookfield P.L., Wis.
