Curl Up with a Cat Tale features humorous and heartwarming short stories about the ongoing adventures of Gwen Cooper’s feline family. I reviewed the first story in the series, I Choo-Choo-Choose You, and the second story, Stop Trying to Make Fetch Happen, in May. I finally had a chance to catch up on June, July and August’s stories.

Them! A Story in Five Parts features Gwen’s current cats, Fanny and Clayton, and gives us a look at Gwen’s day to day life as a writer. It also features one of the funniest sequences I’ve seen in a cat book in a very long time. I read this story on my flight to CatCon, and I couldn’t help myself, I snorted with laughter. The person in the seat next to me looked at me like I was slightly deranged before she asked me what I was reading.

I also caught up on The Picasso of Pee, featuring Vashti, who took outside the litter box thinking to an art form, and Cat Carrier Tango, a  Murphy’s law kind of story in which everything that could go wrong did go wrong. Both stories are as wonderful as all the others in the series.

Individual stories in the Curl Up with a Cat Tale series are available on Amazon, Nook, etc., or you can make a one-time payment of $14.99 to get all the stories for the whole year at a 60% discount off the retail price – and you know you’re going to want to read the whole series.

  1. These sound like cute stories. That’s funny how you got the passenger next to you to ask what you were reading. It must have been a really good scene in the book.
