's review

it was ok

Bukowski's musing on cats, not only about his own, but also stray cats, cats on the street, cats in some other people's house.

Books on cats that are more about how-to, or more scientific essays, are okay for me. But books on cats by cat-owners who are filled with their feelings or experiences with cats in their life usually make me sad. That's why I try to avoid them. And avoid having pets. Losing them due to stealing, diseases, death, are unbearable. Yet I read (or actually listen to) this book. Not really an exciting book: some parts are bordering funny, some parts are heart-warming, some parts are sad. It's good that the audiobook only lasts for 1 hour.

The audiobook is narrated very clearly, but I cringed when the narrator tried to mimic female voices. Why didn't he just use his own voice?
