Cute little book about a man, a cat, and commitment. I love cats and believe they can and do change lives...as do most animals if you give them a chance.

Short and sweet. ( )

The friendship between a bachelor and a stray cat.

I loved the book. The last chapter almost pulled the same manipulative ending as Breath, Eyes, Memory and Friendship Cake but thankfully didn't. Given the photograph on the back of the book, I have to wonder if the author was writing in part about himself. It was nice to see the Bachelor evolve as a character as the kitten brought out the best in him. Anyone who liked this book would also like Clevland Amory's books and James Herriot's Cat Stories. With so many of these sentimental books about men and their cats, do they count as a genre—"kit lit" perhaps? ( )

It was kind of the bachelor to take in the freezing lost kitten. Too bad he seemed like a careless alcoholic. ( )
