I truly had no idea what to expect, having not read any of the reviews before hand. However, a book about cats couldn't be anything but a delightful read, and this one is one of the most delightful cat books I've read.

Alex Rosel has collected stories and photos of cats from around the world, and compiled them into a delightful read. The cats come from Wales, Spain, Czech Republic, UK, Mexico, the US and, basically wherever people and cats live together. Each cat has her or his own idiosyncrasies, and one cat, Alfie of Chepstow, South Wales has his own Facebook page where you may 'friend' him and read about his exploits. (Alas, Alfie passed away this past Tuesday, 12 Mar 13, so there will be no new adventures of Alfie. But check out his page anyway.) He's a delightful cat, and the world is a better place for his having graced it!

This book tells the stories of the cats and their people, how they interact with each other, and how important each is to the other.

At the end of the book are some questions about raising kittens to become cats, and I am pleased to say, I answered all correctly;-) If you've never owned a kitten, those questions and their answers are pretty important.

If you're a cat lover, as I am, you will enjoy this book. If you're a dog lover, as I am, you will still enjoy this book. It's a 'must have' book. Although I own an electronic version, I am seriously considering buying a hard copy to have in the house. (Much easier to share;-)
