  • Paperback: 192 pages

  • Publisher: Revell (October 15, 2013)

  • ISBN-13: 978-0800721800

  • A playful bat of a string. A bored yawn. A tender purr at the touch of your hand.
    Cats are one of God's most enigmatic creatures. They're as crafty as they are cuddly, as rambunctious as they are reserved. We never quite know just what our cats are thinking--but it's perfectly obvious that they always are.

    The Cat in the Window is a delightful collection of true stories that celebrate the cats in our lives. Inside you'll meet an orange tiger-striped cat who softened the hard edges of life for a young family, a skinny black-and-white stray who braved a blizzard to find a home, a fat cat who saved his owner's life one night, cats who offered comfort in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and many more. These warm stories will touch your heart and renew your spirit.

    So curl up on the couch with the special cat in your life . . . and enjoy!

    My Review:

    I enjoyed reading this collection of non fiction short stories featuring humans and their cats. We have two cats at my house named Little Baby and Biscuit who are spoiled rotten! These were heart warming stories that made me happy we have cats. You might not appreciate them as much if you do not have a lot of experience with cats. It left me wanting to read more. Highly Recommended. :)

    Callie Smith Grant is the editor of A Dickens of a Cat, A Prince among Dogs, and The Dog Next Door. She is also the author of several nonfiction books for young readers and adults, as well as many animal-themed stories and poems that can be seen in Guideposts anthologies and in magazines such as Small Farmer's Journal.
