Meet THE BEAR – a cat who carries the weight of the world on his furry shoulders, and whose wise, owl-like eyes seem to ask, Can you tell me why I am a cat, please?
Like many intellectuals, The Bear would prefer a life of quiet solitude with plenty of time to gaze forlornly into space and contemplate society’s ills. Unfortunately he is destined to spend his days surrounded by felines of a significantly lower IQ . .
RALPH: handsome, self-satisfied tabby, terrified of the clothes horse.
SHIPLEY: mouthy hooligan and champion mouser, rendered insensible by being turned upside-down.
ROSCOE: fiercely independent kitten, tormented by her doppelganger in the mirror.
And then there’s Tom, writing with his usual wit and charm about the unexpected adventures that go hand in hand with a life at the beck and call of four cats . . . or three cats and a sensitive poet who just happens to be a foot high and covered in fur.
The book revolves around the lives of Tom Cox and his cats.
As a cat owner I can relate to some of the things that he describes and the problems he faces.
He shows us that every cat has a unique and special personality that makes every single one of them extraordinary.
If you love cats or want to know more about them, you should try The Good, the Bad and the Furry. I laughed a lot with this book and really enjoyed reading it.
