Highly enjoyable! Made me want to track down my two cats and cuddle them. Think Elmyra from the old Tiny Toons cartoon--only not quite that severe. Howard (cat #1), my love sponge, was all too happy for the attention and begged for more pettings and cuddlings long after I put him down. Luna (cat #2) instantly struggled to free herself from the hug and, once free, glared at me from a far corner of the room as she labored hard to primp and preen and fix the fur I obviously messed up.

As described, this book contains stories about extraordinary cats...althouth ALL cats are extraordinary(and I'm sure Vicki has trouble narrowing down the choices). Plus, an unexpected treat: In the final chapter there's some closure about what happened to Vicki with life after Dewey. I'm glad to hear she's found such happiness and wish her the best of luck :)
