This story is a continuation in part of the life of Dewey, the small town library cat.  It is also stories of other cats and how they impacted the lives of their people.  I won't say owner because we all know that no one ever really owns a cat.
These wonderful stories are heart warming stories sent to the author after they read the story of Dewey, and they then usually shared how Dewey touched their lives, and how their own cats touched their lives.  I enjoyed each and every story, but one story was particularly special to me and that was the story of the Church Cat. (Chapter eight)  Imagine my surprise as I started reading the story and recognized that the town and the church mentioned is a church where a dear friend's husband pastors.  While they were not at this church during the time of the Church Cat, they too recognized the names of the people in the story.  It truly made the story special to me.  I also enjoyed the very last story of how the author met her husband and the cats in their lives.
A wonderful book, with lots of giggles at the antics of the cats.  You will truly enjoy this compilation of kitty stories.  300 pages U.S. $19.95 hardback, 4 stars.
