Dewey's Nine Lives (Dewey Readmore)
In this standalone sequel to her million copy selling Dewey, Vicki Myron gathers stories about her town's lovable adopted library cat and other felines that have snuggled their ways into our hearts. Inexpensive enough to be a stocking stuffer.

I liked this book a lot; it includes many different stories about cats, their loving owners, and Dewey, a library's pet cat who has attracted many tourists to his town and taught incredible and important lessons to his visitors and owners who work at the library.

I didn't read the first Dewey book although I want to now that I've read this one. This was like an expanded Chicken Soup for Cat Lovers type book. The stories went
into more detail, but they were all heartwarming tales of cats and the people who loved them. The author warned that readers might not agree with the actions of some of the owners and I did get

In fact, that cat survived so many outrageous...more
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 wa...more

Vicki took time to interview everyone involved with these cats to find out just how special these cats were and that like Dewey had a strong perseverance and capacity for love. The stories range from a cat found drowning on C...more
This book is a collection of cat stories written by the authora of the first book about Dewey, the library cat. After the book was written, Vicki Myron was contacted by other cat owners with their stories. Some of these stories are included in this book.
Each story is interesting in its own right. Readers should know that there are bleak portions in some of these stories where the person who owned the cat went through...more
