Received this yesterday, thanks! I am a sucker for these kind of books, just finished one about a German Shepard rescue family. This one looks good!

Well, it took this long for me to read this....I knew what would happen. I cried through the first few chapters and I cried through the last few. I have had to say goodbye to way too many animals. At least Cleo made it through 24 years with her family, plenty of time to heal and protect them, to let them know it was okay to laugh again, after the terrible accident and death of their son, Sam.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

I am so glad that this was shared with me. This was a wonderful story and one that I devoured quick. It is a story of a family in a bit of a crisis and how a kitten not only rescues them but teaches them some important life lessons. I loved this from page one to the very last page. I know that many animal lovers will enjoy Cleo's story. I wish I could tell you more but I don't want to ruin it. Enjoy!

This book is traveling to BooksandMusic who picked this title out of JennyC1230's Bio/Humor VBB. May your world be filled with many purrs.
Happy Reading and Happy BookCrossing!

Journal Entry 9 by wingBooksandMusicwing at Seattle, Washington USA on Sunday, August 27, 2017
Usually when I read a non-fiction book that contains a child death I know this beforehand and can prepare myself. I didn't see anything about that when I picked up this book; I saw a cute black kitten and the quote, "The Next Marley and Me". So I didn't realize what this family's tragedy was when I started reading.
So I'm ticking along, loving the descriptions of Sam, even thinking that I was glad that his mother would not experience losing him! She looks at certain things in retrospect that she interprets as foreshadowing. That is what happens when your child dies, you go back and look for clues and turning points. As a reader I was hit unexpectedly and hard. I mourned Sam, I read this story and now it is part of my soul and my grief. I related to her reactions to the reactions of those around her, their sympathy and such.
So this is the home that is gifted with Cleo the kitten; grieving parents and younger son who witnessed the car accident that killed Sam. Cleo, what a pleasure she was to read about. I understood the cat therapy also. My cat was a large part of my grief healing as well.
I enjoyed the story and related closely. Helen has a lot happen in her life after the death of Sam. I think I stopped relating to the book as much when she and the family all go off places across the world leaving Cleo for a year! with someone who rents their house and cat sits. A year! Cleo was some magnificent cat to not run off or become very depressed. People need their cats, but the cats need their people too. Cleo sticks with them through everything. There was a very deep soul connection between Cleo the cat and her human family.
