Overview

Lost Cat: A True Story of Love, Desperation, and GPS Technology by Caroline Paul, Wendy MacNaughton

A Finalist for the 26th Lambda Literary Award

Caroline Paul was recovering from a bad accident and thought things couldn't get worse. But then her beloved cat Tibia disappeared. She and her partner, illustrator Wendy MacNaughton, mourned his loss. Yet weeks later, Tibia waltzed back into their lives. His owners were overjoyed. But they were also...jealous? Betrayed? Where had their sweet anxious cat disappeared to? Had he become a swashbuckling cat adventurer? Did he love someone else more? His owners were determined to find out.

Using GPS technology, cat cameras, psychics, the web, and animal communicators, the authors of Lost Cat embarked on a quest to discover what their cat did when they weren't around. Told through writer Caroline Paul's rich and warmly poignant narrative and illustrator Wendy MacNaughton's stunning and hilarious 4-color illustrations, Lost Cat is a book for animal lovers, pet owners, and anyone who has ever done anything desperate for love.

This is a charming story, told with a warm sense of humor. The characters are well developed - both human and animal.

This book was so amazing. It made me laugh and cry and wonder at the creativity and brilliance of the authors. I can't recommend it highly enough. Thank you, B&N, for letting me find it in one of your stores!~!!

Well-written and amusing book. Not your typical silly and exaggerated pet story. My vet actually recommended this one. The author has a knack for expressing in witty terms the thoughts of her cats as well as her own emotions over the disappearance of her one cat. Anyone with a feline can relate to her writing. There is one surprisingly sad, short chapter (not related to the lost cat) so keep some tissues ready. The illustrations are a great addition to the book. This book can be read in one evening and I'm keeping mine on the bookshelf to read again.
