This is one of those books that you kind of know what to expect, but you don't mind reading anyway. It's a 'nice' story of a professed 'dog' man who, although heavily involved in animal advocacy, has no pets of his own. When he if pressed to help rescue a stray kitten on Christmas Eve, he ends up with a friend for life ... or at least another living creature that rules his life!

The author does go off topic on occasion, but they're hugely interesting and varied interruptions - the history of the Beverley Hills Hotel, saving seals from being killed for fur, famous people and their cats .... all while he works out how to live with a very opinionated cat.

I think that while reading this, you have to remember that it was published a while ago now and some of the attitudes he goes on about have very much changed (or at least they have in the UK if not elsewhere), so his rants seem slightly meaningless. But on the whole I found this an entertaining, funny in places, read ... and at least he avoided the usual unhappy ending that such animal books usually have!
