Must-Read for Cat Lovers

If, like me, you have a cat that you've bonded with, you'll understand and enjoy this book. Being a little over the top with my love of cats, I bawled through most of this book. Had to keep telling my road trip companion that I was okay, it wasn't even sad (well, there are some emotional parts!) but mostly just marveling at the relationships that humans can have with animals, which can truly save us sometimes.

Highly recommended

This book is a good, heartwarming read. Bowen and Bob's story is a fascinating one. You'll enjoy reading about Bob's funny little personality and you'll be cheering for Bowen's recovery process.
