Written as the daily diary of an unnamed house cat, Diary of a Cat shows you the world through a feline perspective. Cat shares what he sees in his own neighborhood and not just the birds but what his human neighbors are up to as well. You will discover what Cat is thinking while he stays at a single speck on the wall, how it feels about a new kitten moving into his house and why sleeping is such a vital all-day activity.
i like my animal stories light and cheery without the sadness that is all too real for so many critters in the world. this one had some really cute moments, no doubt, but there was also sadness and reality and a truly odd, macabare (albeit darkly humorous) moment that was unexpected ( though lauded by those of us who like animals more than most people we know), so i can only give it a 3. never fear - the ending was a good one.
