The Cat in the Window by Callie Smith Grant

cat in the window coverThere’s just something about a big fur ball called a cat that is simply irresistible to most everyone.

Maybe it’s because they can be quite and reserve one minute and rambunctious and a wholly terror the next. Whatever the reason, cat lovers have many tales of their feline’s adventures to share.

Author Callie Smith Grant has brought many of those wonderful true stories together in a delightful collection called THE CAT IN THE WINDOW AND OTHER STORIES OF THE CATS WE LOVE. The collection is comprised of 28 tales of various cat adventures, as well as how the cats and their human caretakers came together.

The stories are as varied as the cats themselves. There are cats who braved the elements to find a home, others who provide comfort and love for families, while others even perform gallant acts protecting their owners.

These enchanting stories will warm your spirit, tug on your heart strings, bring a tear to your eye and definitely cause you to smile. The stories tell of unconditional love and understanding, compassion and caring. While reading this captivating book, you may find a cat or two that reminds you of your own or ones belonging to family and friends. The book also includes a short introduction to each of the cat story contributors. 

Whether you are a cat lover or not, THE CAT IN THE WINDOW is a charming book about the mystery and adventure cats enjoy each day and some of the people they take along for the ride.
