Publisher's Summary

“I hate cats more than any on the planet,” Grandpa always told us. “A dog you can take hunting and a moose you can shoot, but a cat only gets in the way and barfs on your carpet in the nighttime, most usually in the very spot that you step on first thing in the morning with your bare feet - and then you are left walking around the whole day long smelling of cat-barfed-on-footprints.”

Of course, I always wondered if there wasn't a different kind of story....

A touching and humorous, and almost-mostly true short story, by Steve Vernon - the man who brought you cat tales - issue number one.

Fantastic narration and good listen overall

I was not expecting much from a 23-minute audiobok. However, it was a very nice, calm story (you could call it sad) that was made even better by the narrator. I enjoyed it.

Great story, great performance

Really great story. I listened to it on my commute and I was absolutely delighted. Vernon writes in a straightforward voice and Dysart manages to really capture the heart of the story.

5/5 both for story and narration.
