The Cat in the Window Edited by Callie Smith Grant
About the book:
A playful bat of a string. A bored yawn. A tender purr at the touch of your hand.
Cats are one of God's most enigmatic creatures. They're as crafty as they are cuddly, as rambunctious as they are reserved. We never quite know just what our cats are thinking--but it's perfectly obvious that they always are.
The Cat in the Window is a delightful collection of true stories that celebrate the cats in our lives. Inside you'll meet an orange tiger-striped cat who softened the hard edges of life for a young family, a skinny black-and-white stray who braved a blizzard to find a home, a fat cat who saved his owner's life one night, cats who offered comfort in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and many more. These warm stories will touch your heart and renew your spirit.
So curl up on the couch with the special cat in your life . . . and enjoy!
This is an enjoyable book with a wide variety of stories. Some made me laugh and some cry. I really liked a few of them, but a few did get long and a little too detailed. They're by a variety of authors, most who I had never heard of. Some of the authors are admitted cat-lovers, like myself, but others became cat-lovers reluctantly. Some of them learned lessons from their cats, but all were entertained by them and it was fun to see some of the same antics my cats perform in these pages. If you love cats, this book's for you!
I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
Available October 2013 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
