If you enjoy cat stories, this book is for you. The Cat in the Window, edited by Callie Smith Grant, features an uplifting collection of stories about cats in all their multifaceted glory.

From the cat who lives in a fourth-grade classroom and becomes a teacher himself to the cat who offered comfort in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the stories in this book will warm your heart. There are cats who mend hearts, and cats who save lives. Some of the cats in the book are pampered indoor cats, others are strays who brave blizzards to find a home. All of them will touch you in some way.

Contributors range from novelists and screenwriters to artists and veterinary technicians, adding a broad range of viewpoints and lifestyles to this collection. I wanted to pick a favorite story for this review, but it’s impossible, and wouldn’t do the stories I don’t pick justice.

This is the purrfect book for curling up on the sofa with a cat or two on a lazy afternoon or evening!

I received a review copy of this book from the publisher. Receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
