I love cats but often have a horror of cat stories because they so often end with death but these stories are mostly charming and full of love. Just a joy to read. I also loved the water color illustrations.

Although James Herriot was a farm veterinarian in the English countryside and dealt mostly with large animals such as cows and sheep, he also took care of dogs and cats. He wrote a series of books popular the world over about his veterinary experiences with all the various animals he treated. But JAMES HERRIOT’S CAT STORIES is a collection of his touching stories about the cats, exclusively.

This is a small, illustrated book. Each story is a selection from one of his books in the series. I love his series and so, of course, I loved these cat stories. This is another of Herriot’s feel-good books. ( )

I know everyone raves about James Herriot but I do think this is his best book. Unlike the meandering though enjoyable memoirs of others, this book is the most focused and funny of all. The cats are real characters and will illicit sympathy, sadness, happiness and laughter. A Keepsake. ( )

Heartwarming true stories of an English vet and the feline friends he met throughout his career.

Cats have always played a large part in my life, first when I was a boy in Glasgow, then as a practising veterinary surgeon, and now, in my retirement, they are still there, lightening my days.
