    Pet Grief helped by this book!

    When my cat died, I had some unusual occurances happen. Besides dealing with the grief I felt, I was confused by spiritual happenenings. I much wanted to believe I'd see my dear pet again on the Other Side. I bought this book because it seemed just what I might need to read! I basically sat down and devoured the book in 2 days. It EXCEEDED my expectations. The stories were facinateing, and it was well written---in fact the author seemed like a friend telling me about these things! I felt so much better after reading the book! I now know I'll deffinately see my dear pet on the Other Side, and that he sometimes stops by to check on me as well! If you have lost a pet--do yourself a favor and get this book! If you have a friend who has lost one, give them this book! It is a wonderful and magical read! I Highly reccomend it!

    Awesome!

    Ghost Cats is fabulous! A must read for ailurophiles and ghost lovers alike! Check out the story, 'Scamper's Spector,' it shows how some ghosts interact with living cats and humans. A great book fo stories and a musts for any who have lost a loved companion. Very healing, entertaining and thought-provoking.

    This is a book I would recommend to anybody!

    I liked reading this book because there were many instances of seeing a ghost cat under different circumstances. From being a warning, to just saying goodbye, this was a good read from beginning to end. It was comforting also to know I was not the only one to have such an experience, that our animals friends do communicate with us while on this earth and also when departed.
