  • For a cat book, its good!

    by on

    I know, you would think I would be the last person to read a book about cats. Especially ginger cats. Two of the most annoying things I could think of rolled into one. But this book has a lot to teach us. There's homelessness, drug dependency, the best and worst of human behaviour, and the hope that comes with a little love. For a book about a cat, it was pretty darn good.
