about

Informative and enjoyable. Learn about the Great Millennium cat expedition to Mt. Everest. About a long line of traditional ships´ cats. About cats that travel the world. About city cats, farm cats, computer-literate cats. Make friends with French cats, Bavarian cats and a colony of cats living under a grain elevator. Read about a Cuban cat, a lighthouse cat and a cat who loved motorcycles … about cats who achieve, outsmart and survive against all odds ... stories told by cats, for cats.

Following the publication of Tyke & Dusty in 1997, I received dozens of letters from readers telling me their stories of cats. At craft markets and book signings, people would stop and relate amusing feline adventures. Many of them had to do with the arrival on their doorsteps (usually in winter) of stray cats.

Not that there weren´t occasional tricky complications, such as jealous pets already in residence, or a spouse who didn"t like cats. But nine times out of ten the situation resolved itself in the foundling´s favour, even if, in some cases, it required an attitude adjustment on the part of the designated host. What struck me too was that many of these unsolicited testimonials came from cat owners who were willing, even anxious, to provide details of their own personal lives.
