Book Description:

After years of vibrant city life in San Francisco, Lonnie Hull DuPont reluctantly trades her three-room apartment on Telegraph Hill for a farmhouse in Michigan. She immediately misses the rhythm and the pace of the city, and the isolation of country living has her longing for something more.

Enter Kit Kat, an obsessive-compulsive tortoiseshell, and Lucy, a playful Russian Blue who can nail a bat right out of the air. These stray cats arrive a year apart and each ask to move into the farmhouse--and ultimately DuPont's heart. From the hysterical process of getting two strange cats to like each other to the exciting years of watching those cats thrive--and inspire DuPont in the process--this book is the heartwarming story of how one woman's world would never be the same.

My Thoughts:

I loved this book.  
I can't remember a time growing up when we didn't have a cat. 
Yes, I am a cat owner and lover.  
This is a precious story of a woman who opens not only her heart, but also her home to a stray cats.  Ms. DuPont shows what a wonderful person she really is.  I do not know her, but if we were to meet I think we would become fast friends.  The first of the book she sort of introduces herself to us on a personal level by talking about her accomplishments and her marriage.  She talks about the decision to move from California to Michigan and what a big change that was for her on a personal level.  
As Kit Kat comes on the scene she brings much humor to the story, but most of all the author shares the good, the bad and the ugly of having a cat.  As she introduces us to Kit Kat we see just how an animal can touch your heart in a very short space of time and in turn your entire life.  As she introduced Lucy to the story I could actually see it all unfolding.  Of course I'm a cat lover so some of her stories I could easily relate to because I had experience some of the same things. 
 If you are a person who loves animals, especially cats, this is the book for you.
