Christine Davis has managed to do the nearly impossible: write a story about the forever love between pet-owner and pet that is delightful and charming without being too sugary sweet. She describes the relationship between pet and person that goes beyond life on earth in a way that is enchanting and surprisingly believable. Who's to say it can't happen! The lovely illustrations add magic to this little book that everyone who has loved a cat should read and own.

After a traumatic three days with our four-year old cat Salem wherein he underwent extensive procedures to save his life (he didn't make it), a package arrived in the mail. It was from the hospital. I couldn't imagine what it could be, but when I opened it I found a copy of this book. The vet and techs who worked with Salem all wrote personal and heartfelt messages in it and they attached a photo of him while he was there receiving treatment. The story itself is overwhelmingly sweet and hopeful, ...more

I'm not a fan of the illustration style (though I love the colors and the hidden humor), but the last third of the book completely got me. "A cat can never really be separated from its forever person . . . Sometimes cats will cross the angel bridge to visit their forever person on earth." And dogs, too.

Welp . . . starting sobbing after about a page, so definitely emotionally resonant. I like how the book remained spiritual vs. overtly religious . . . made it accessible to many different types of people. Would definitely recommend for anyone just going through a loss as well as anyone who has loved and lost in the past.

I was expecting this to be overly saccharine and schmaltzy to the point of humor, but I was pleasantly surprised. This carefully-written gift book is unexpectedly powerful. It offers a gentle portrayal of the love between a person and her cat, and the book is sweet without being soppy. Perfect for all cat lovers.

Recommends it for: anyone whose pet died
Shelves: children
This is a simple children's book which can be quite comforting to those who have lost a pet (there's one for dogs too). I happened across it after my first cat died, and liked it to so much that I sent one to my niece when her cat was hit by a car.

This book was donated to my library in honor of my "forever cats", Martini and Rossi, after I lost them in a fire. It will always be a book close to my heart.
