    When I was a child my mother and I loved Herriot’s memoirs of life as a primarily large animal veterinarian in Yorkshire One story from this volume – the final Christmas themed one – is familiar from a picture book we brought out around the holidays The rest are all drawn from the memoirs though so the fact that I don’t remember them must be a function of time; it could be as many as 22 years since I last picked up a Herriot book In any case these are charming tales about gentle medical mysteries and even the most aloof of stray cats becoming devoted pets I especially liked “Alfred The Sweet Shop Cat” and “Oscar The Socialite Cat” about two endearing creatures known around the village I also appreciated Herriot’s observation that “cats are connoisseurs of comfort” With cute watercolor illustrations this little book would make a great gift for any cat loverIncluded in my recent blog post on books about cats

    My wife loves cats and she had this book in the car as we were driving back to our home in Eagle Mountain after a visit to the warmer climate of St George She sometimes reads to me as we ride along and she picked James Herriot's Cat Stories on this trip I'm a cat tolerater but hearing the delightful stories in this book almost converted me to cat lover Herriot has a charming way of relating his stories and his love for animals shines through whether he's writing about cats as in this book or any of the many other kinds of animals he deals with in his other books And his stories always seem to have a happy ending I know that isn't necessarily popular these days but I like it

    Always have been and always will be a fiercely convinced dog person; nonetheless in my childhood my mother would read Herriot's cat stories to me as bedtime tales and my enjoyment was undeniableI remember being engrossed with the kitty adventures and clinging to my blankets anxiously awaiting a happy ending for all Herriot's patients I enjoyed all the sweet water color illustrations I'd stare at while my mum would carefully narrate stories of variably ill cats possibly feeling tenderness and sympathy for these majestic creatures that I've sadly never been very fond ofGiven that these are my feelings as a proud dog lover I'm positive that anyone unlike me living in Kitty City would absolutely adore this book

  7. Noelle says:
