Book Description:

I was snatched from my mum when I was only two weeks old, and what happened next was bigger than any kitten could imagine.

"A gently witty and charming story which draws the reader in from the word 'go' to a truly entrancing feline perspective on human well-intentioned but frequently misguided behaviour when taking on a new pet."
- Mary Ashton, retired veterinary surgeon

"A heart-warming story that really has unique perspective on the ever-important animal-human bond (and how our pets really feel about us)."
- Sommer Pari, licensed veterinary technician

My Review:
Reviewed by Laura Fabiani

This book was a gem! Heart-warming, funny and told from both the perspectives of Liane and her cat Tammy, I quickly devoured this little unassuming book that reinforced how precious and deep the connection between a pet and its owner can be.

Liane is a kind, animal lover who was thrilled to get a tiny kitten (it was the only one at the pet store) for her 16th birthday. Throughout her teen years and on into adulthood and marriage, Liane takes the reader on a journey of her relationship with her cat Tammy. I have a cat (who looks similar to Tammy) and was able to relate to some of what Liane experienced but Tammy was special and had such a strong personality, doing things that most cats don't do. Some of the tricks she did on unsuspecting visitors had me in stitches. What an amazing little cat!

This memoir alternately told from both perspectives was brilliantly done. Liane's joyous way of embracing life was a breath of fresh air. I liked her instantly and this feeling only grew as I continued reading. Tammy's perspective was insightful and there were moments when I forgot she was a cat! The story flowed smoothly and quickly and was a pleasure to read. It is an endearing book that had me in tears at the end.

Highly recommended for cat lovers, animal lovers and readers of memoirs. It's a story that would appeal to young readers and adult readers alike. Truly a  beautiful story.
