Kitty Cornered by Bob Tarte
This is a laugh-out-loud tale of a couple, Bob and Linda Tarte, who just can’t turn their backs on a cat in need. They end up with six, each with its own idiosyncrasies, from a portly tabby who wails non-stop to a female “snapping crocodile” dilute tabby who’s unreliable with the litterbox. The enjoyment of this book comes from Tarte’s self-deprecating introspection and awareness that his care and anxiety for his cats goes above and beyond that of a typical cat owner. While Tarte works to get into the mind of each cat, the cats intermittently wage war on one another.
Whether you’ve got your own passel of kitties or have ever taken in an animal in need, you’ll enjoy Kitty Cornered.
