Publisher's Summary

The cat that captured America's hearts returns, with two new tales and seven more tails.

Dewey's Nine Lives offers nine funny, inspiring, and heartwarming stories about cats - all told from the perspective of "Dewey's Mom", librarian Vicki Myron. The amazing felines in this book include Dewey, of course, whose further never-before-told adventures are shared, and several others Vicki found out about when their owners reached out to her.

Vicki learned, through extensive interviews and story sharing, what made these cats special, and how they fit into Dewey's community of perseverance and love. From a divorced mother in Alaska who saved a drowning kitten on Christmas Eve to a troubled Vietnam veteran whose heart was opened by his long relationship with a rescued cat, these Dewey-style stories will inspire listeners to laugh, cry, care, and most importantly, believe in the magic of animals to touch individual lives.

    "Better Than Expected"

    I'm always a bit leery of the books that are collections of cat stories. I'm a huge cat lover, and some of the novels are among my favorite books (namely Dewey, Homer, Cat Daddy, and A Street Cat Named Bob), but I really hate the short stories that go: "person adopts cat, person loves cat, cat dies due largely to owner's cluelessness and negligence, former owner mourns cat". I mean c'mon, there is no reason to tell a story like that.

    But I loved the original "Dewey" story so much that I had to take a chance on this.

    Sure enough, there are a number of the stories like I mention above *sigh*, but there are some good ones mixed in there as well. I really enjoyed "Christmas Cat" for example, and a few others, and the surprise was that thrown in there, in between the other stories, are some new anecdotes about Dewey (and Vicki), which I really enjoyed hearing about.

    So overall, I'm happy that I got this book, and listened to it. It's not near as good as the original Dewey book, not even close, but as far as the "collection of short cat stories" books, it's above average.
