Well, that's one book I won't be getting! I can't wait for Jackson's new Catification book that comes out this month, I think!

I just listened to cat daddy and loved it! I've watched his show, making learning his back story particularly interesting. I purchased the homer audio book and am excited to start! It'll make my hour commute much better :biggrin:

Jackson's new book "Catify to Satisfy" is another great book with lots of super ideas.

If anyone wants a good read but sad at the end, but not so sad after all, Dewey is fantastic read I was glued to it.

Another good one is Tilly. The ugliest cat, it's about a cat rescued from a shelter and she also rescued the human, great read.

I finally got through Casper The Commuting Cat recently (via audible). Casper was an interesting cat who would get into line, board buses that stopped near his home, and travel around the town. He also was a regular at the local hospital/clinic, where he would just wander in and mingle with the patients and staff.

This was a pretty frustrating read (listen). This book could potentially have been as good as Dewy, but the main problem is that since Casper's owner didn't witness Casper's adventures herself, she had virtually no knowledge of them, and didn't bother to do the research to interview all the necessary people to really piece together (and tell us about) his adventures. So really the book has about, maybe 1 hour of material on Casper's adventures, and 4 hours of "filler". Not only that but the owner is pretty misguided imo. She was basically a cat hoarder (she had 8 cats at one point), let all of them run wild, moved from house to house (often living near major roads), then blamed the neighbors, local businesses, public traffic authorities, and automobile drivers, when her cats got into trouble. Casper was actually twice hit by cars, and she lost several other cats to traffic as well, yet it never occurred to her to change things.

Anyhow, not sure I can recommend this one. I almost hope that somebody else takes a crack at writing this story, because there is a good story there, but it takes somebody to do the legwork to bring the full story out. Not surprising, Casper's owner wasn't the right person to do this.
