Very cute book! I'm a big cat lover and this book was so wonderful to read. Every story reminded me about why I love felines. Fantastically written book, and it was extremely easy to loose yourself within the stories.I highly recommend this book to all animal lovers out there.

I got this from my sister a long time ago and remember liking it well enough. I wonder where it is now, I don't think I've got rid of it...

I probably should not have read this while sitting in the middle seat of an airplane. I have a real soft spot for cats, and I'm sure the folks sitting next to me thought I was quite the ninny for crying the way I did. Not that these stories are sad - far from it. They're funny, charming, and very touching. Though my parents owned copies of Herriot's original veterinary memoirs (All Creatures Great and Small, et al), this is the first book I've read by him. But they were so well-written that I think I'll have to go find copies of his other works. Definitely recommended for cat-lovers.

James Herriot's Cat Stories is a great book for children and adults. I've not found a James Herriot book I did not enjoy. I would recommend this book for animal lovers, cat lovers, and children. The illustrations are very well done.
