Presents a collection of true-life stories about cats who bring home mice to feed nursing babies, meow sadly when the kids go to school, and keep their owners company through their later years

Blackwell North Amer
Drawn from history and literature as well as from cat lovers - both famous and not so famous - from all walks of life all over the world, here are unforgettable tales that take us behind the cool, independent facade of the cat to reveal the sweet, sensitive, devoted creature within. Here are just a few of the cats guaranteed to catch your heart: Priscilla, who meowed at her apartment door for two days. Finally her owners thought to check on their elderly neighbor and discovered that she had broken her hip and was unable to move; Pearl and Skittles, the Keystone Cats, who watched over their household with total vigilance. Any problem - a clogged drain in the kitchen, a stereo left on at night - and they sounded the alarm, waking everyone in the house; Murry, the cat who became the constant companion and protector of a young boy suffering from cystic fibrosis; Nicholas, who every day fed the family pit bull; he jumped up on the kitchen table, grabbed a dog bone, and dropped it down to his pal; and Subway, the beautiful orange tabby who not only survived being shot with a shotgun, but later, apparently killed in an accident, jumped out of the box he was to be buried in and frolicked among the guests at his own funeral.
