really liked it

This is a sweet little Christmas story that everyone should enjoy, but it is especially great for cat lovers. After his parents died when he was just a child, Garrison Brown was raised by his Grandma, who lived a number of years with her husband in Kenya, until her husband died and she had to leave.

When Garrison grew up, he worked in Uganda for a number of years. Shortly after he came back to the states, his Grandma died. Her one request was for Garrison to find good homes for her six cats. This involved a long list of requirements for the potential owners, and included a surprise generous gift for the new owners. Grandma had also hoped Garrison would find his love and remain in her home. The placing of the cats almost seemed miraculous for both the cats and the new owners.

Thoroughly enjoyed this seasonal story. Loved how each cat found their perfect owners. The friendships, problems and community part of this story was excellent. I always have enjoyed Melody Carlson's books, and this was just as sweet and emotional as all her other stories.
