I only started reading this book because my grandma gave it to me for christmas and told me that it was "a wonderful book that made me think of you". I put off reading it for about 6 months but then I didn't have any new books to read so I picked this one up. Belive me, I don't like reading non-fiction books, so it's pretty amazing that a real-life story about a cat pulled me in so fast. It's a really interesting yet funny book, so good that I made excuses to use it for my "survival" unit in school. *warning* I got a little bit tierd with all of the cat stuff as the book went on.
