Mainly a sci-fi, and fantasy junkie who also enjoys horror, whodunnits, and books about animals and sports. I'm also an amateur filmmaker.
I would prune out the bad and inexplicable stories and replace them with better ones, or even just leave them out entirely.
There is no ending, it's a series or little anecdotes.
This *is* an improvement from the other Chicken Soup book about cats, where both the male and female parts were read by a woman. The trouble is that the guy's voice is really not very appropriate for this type of reading.
About half the stories are really good. Funny or touching or heart-warming or all three. The problem is that the rest of the stories are inexplicable, or stupid, or just plain misguided. For example there is a story about an owner who declawed her cat, then had the cat go live outside (what an idiot) and then get balled out for doing so by her "mean" neighbor. Huh? And then there is another where a woman adopts a crippled cat, and she adores it but then lets it outside where it gets killed by a car. Nice! A lot of the stories are a testament to human stupidity of the cat owners more so than they are about any special qualities that the cats possess. But like I said, about half the stories are very good and touching.
