Spam the cat thought he'd seen a lot of the world in his nine months of life. After all, he was the foremost vampire hunter of Port Deception, WA. (SPAM VS THE VAMPIRE)! This was his first Christmas, however, and from what he'd heard on TV, on Christmas all was supposed to be calm, all was supposed to be bright. The deer and Renfrew the raccoon had other ideas however. In an attempt to keep Renfrew, aka "The UPS Bandit" from ruining a lot of Christmases, Spam begins a task that leads to his being the sole protection of a new mother and child, and a less-than-warm-and-fuzzy reunion with his feral father. Altogether, his first Christmas eve is a less than Silent Night. Illustrated by Karen Gillmore.

The proceeds of this book from whatever source will be donated to the Humane Society of Jefferson County for the benefit of the animal shelter.

Father Christmas: Spam the Cat's First Christmas 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Spam the cat is a wonderful protagonist. Part wild, part tame, he lives in a glorious cat-filled household together with friends/family called Board, Byte, Alt, Escape and more, but you might have to read Spam vs the Vampire to learn more about them. Luckily there’s a very enjoyable excerpt included at the end the of Father Christmas—well worth the read. In Father Christmas Spam sets out to enjoy his first ever Christmas, and slowly learns the mysteries of a star that leads reindeer to mystical hay, and the strange stone statues of people decorating people’s lawns. This cats-eye view of faith and festivities is thoroughly enjoyable. From sneaky raccoon to over-confident, over-eager Tomcat with his harem of wives, this story’s a bundle of fun, and a thoroughly enjoyable treat even if it’s not Christmas. It’s a pretty short book, but don’t miss out on the extras at the end—they’ll hook you even more! Disclosure: I won a free ecopy of this book.
