    Two books I heartily recommend, especially if you are a cat lover. Both are true stories.

    You can look inside both books on Amazon

    Paw Prints in the Moonlight.

    A snowy January night. A cat that beat the odds. A man whose life would be forever changed. This is the remarkable story of Toby Jug, the extraordinary cat who thought he was human.

    Paw Prints in the Moonlight is the truly special tale of one kind man and the cat that changed his life. Set in the rural splendor of Northumberland, England, this heart warming and classic book will be cherished by people of all ages.

    When Denis O'Connor rescues a three-week-old kitten from certain death during a snowstorm, little does he know how this tiny creature will change his life forever. Against all odds the kitten—whom he names Toby Jug—survives and turns out to be a wondrous Maine Coon Cat extraordinaire. Life with Toby is never dull, and Denis and Toby embark on a series of sometimes comical, sometimes poignant adventures that bring them ever closer together. From the massive invasion of bees at Owl Cottage to the mysterious case of the disappearing tomatoes, Denis and Toby form an extraordinary bond, and the cat that no one thought would live through the night ends up altering the lives of everyone he meets.

    Paw Tracks at Owl Cottage

    When Denis O'Connor and his wife Catherine return to Owl Cottage, only to find it in a dilapidated state, they decide to restore his former home. But the memory of Denis' beloved cat, Toby Jug, still lingers on. On impulse, he buys four Maine Coon kittens and names them Pablo, Carlos, Luis and Max. Set against the wilds of the Northumbrian coast, Denis tenderly and humorously charts the ups and downs of life with his mischievous new cats. Forays into this beautiful countryside - in order to train his cats to bond more closely with him - are never without incident. However, when Pablo disappears, Denis is once again reminded of Toby Jug and the strength of bond between man and cat...

    Funny Cat Books

    I just finished reading the first of 4 of these very humorous books written by Max Thompson. Max is the author and is a tuxie house cat who writes about his world as he sees it. He's flippant, funny, sassy, and also a little bit of a potty mouth, but not offensively so. If our cats could talk, I'm certain that they would be saying all of the things that Max says. Laugh out loud funny reading for all - not just those who are/were owned by cats.

    The Phychokitty Speaks Out: Diary of a Mad Housecat.................This is the one I just finished.

    The Psychokitty Speaks Out: Something of Yours Will Meet a Toothy Death

    The Rules: A Guide for People Owned by Cats

    Bite Me: A Memoir (Of Sorts)


    These are all available on Amazon - Kindle and "real" book variety.

    I think you'll find them to be very funny. I just happened upon them when I was looking for some new books for my Kindle. I bought the 2 Phychokitty ones, and when I finish this next one that I haven't started yet, I'll buy the other two. Great reading if you need a laugh - or even if you don't.

    If you like thrillers, you should enjoy John Grisham's works. I highly recommend him.

    Halfway through Sum It Up by Pat Summitt - long time coach of the University of Tennessee Women's Basketball team. She was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimers 2 years ago. The first chapter I alternated crying with laughing - since then it's mostly laughs. What a wonderful life she had - what a difference she made to women's collegiate athletics

    I highly recommend this one - even if sports isn't your thing. It's the story of a life well lived
