Overview


Every cat owner believes that his or her cat understands them. Every cat owner believes that cats are far more intelligent than dogs—they’re just too cool to show it. Every cat owner believes that their cat should be starring in TV commercials. Every cat owner, in short, is a cat lover. 

If you’re not a cat lover when the cat first comes along—you don’t purchase a cat, they choose to live with you—then you will be within a very short space of time. There are stories, of course, that every cat owner loves to tell. It may be how the cat comforted them on the day a relative died unexpectedly. It may be about how the cat stares down urban foxes in the garden. It may be a story of the cat’s escapades, or how it got stuck up a tree. It may simply be a story about how the cat is a loving companion. 

From editor Carmel Reilly—author of numerous collections of inspirational stories including True Tales of Angel Encounters—comes this delightful anthology of tales about beloved cats and the joy they bring to human lives. Each story is a different cat owner’s tribute to his or her favorite feline, and each falls into a special category, from Cats with Attitude to Kitten Escapades, from Magical Cats to tales about Cats’ Nine Lives. You’ll read about cats that ward off unwanted visitors, cats that hoard silver jewelry, and cats that get stuck in tubs of yogurt. Accompanied by twenty-five charming illustrations and told with warmth, humor, and affection, Me and My Cat is an ideal gift for the cat lover in your life, and a perfect book to curl up with next to a furry friend.
