Book Description
Told from the point of view of an old cat talking to his grandkitten, this fantasy laced with playful satire will give readers insight into feline as well as human psychology. An independent stray cat relates a life story which is filled with adventure after adventure. Human behavior is a mystery to him, and he has trouble understanding some human habits, such as putting smoking chimneys in their mouths. Pufftail has had his share of experience with the evil sides of both human and feline natures; he has been thrown out of a moving car with his brother, who was killed in the fall; has been used as a guinea pig in a cosmetic laboratory; and was forced into a cat brotherhood under the control of "Old Tom" and his thugs. He has known, however, some "well-meaning two-footers" who were kind to him, as well as the love of a good cat. His daughter, Tabitha, like her father, is a sprightly, kind-hearted feline who maintains her independent spirit even though she is kept by humans. Readers will not have to be animal lovers to enjoy the humor or to admire the fiesty gentleness and fierce independence of this old cat who has spent his life searching for the meaning of feline life and love and is drawn back to his family and to people to find them both. Pufftail's voice, salty and matter-of-fact, provides a solid foundation for the author's somewhat obvious opinions about most pet owners. This poignant story will provide readers with some material for thought on the relationship of animals to humans, humanity's responsibility to animals, and our interdependence on those in the animal kingdom.
