When Taffy and Tiffany came into the parsonage, nothing was ever the same! These two little rascals have brought joy and delight into the lives of Clair and his wife, Brenda, as only two lovable kitties could. As the years have gone by, this country preacher and his wife have learned valuable lessons and enjoyed many hours of hilarity watching the antics of their two little furballs as they lovingly call them. You'll chuckle and be touched by their delightful stories, but above all you'll discover the significance of Clair's favorite verse, "Ask the animals and they will teach you" (Job 12:7).
What did you love best about Cats in the Parsonage?
That's difficult to say because there was so much to like. The author did a magnificent job of relating various adventures with felines to his walk with God.
Also, the narrator's voice was so perfect for this read. He had a kindness to his intonations that gave the book so much character.
What did you like best about this story?
I really enjoyed the part about the baptism.
Which character – as performed by Maurice England – was your favorite?
Maurice England read from the author's perspective most of the time and did a wonderful job of it.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The way the cat's play time was described was so much fun.
Any additional comments?
This is a great collection of stories for people who love cats. God also makes many appearances throughout the book, but it's not at all "preachy." It's just a lot of fun.
There are some sad parts - not many - but some. I wouldn't let that discourage potential readers because those parts are dealt with in such a tender way as to make them not only bearable, but moving.
Overall, I would highly recommend this book for anyone who loves cats, wants to hear about God's tender mercies through his creatures, or who just wants a good laugh.
