Editorial reviews

Storyteller Donald Davis charms listeners with offbeat tales of cat owners. With a voice as rich as the North Carolina culture he depicts, Davis demonstrates that eccentricity is memorable. Picture Irma, his mother-in-law, showering with ducklings or frugal Miss Morton paying the vet three dollars to neuter over 30 cats. Davis treats listeners like longtime acquaintances with his natural language and casual style. His live storytelling has some advantages over this audio recording. He sounds more rehearsed on audio than he does in person. Despite these challenges, the larger-than-life characters emerge vividly through detailed narration. Warmly human, the stories present life's universality in Davis's rolling Southern accent.

Publisher's summary

We all know someone like them: women whose lives revolve around their cats. Here Donald Davis paints verbal portraits of two very different women in his life who shared a fiercely unshakable sense of priorities. It was simply understood that the cats came first, and once you accepted that, everything else made perfect sense.

Employing his trademark Carolina drawl, droll wit, and sharp observations, Davis is in top form here as he pays homage to these two remarkable women and their devotion to their feline families.

Heartwarming and funny stories.

Donald Davis tells the best stories, these were no exception. He's easy to listen to and most readers will likely find something or someone in his stories to relate to.

Feline Fondness and Friends

This short listen about two ladies who loved cats is a heartwarming one. One is Donald Davis' mother-in-law, who loves company and helping others (especially animals) more than she does eating, the other is an old reclusive retired school teacher, who nobody visits except for the preacher and the local veterinarian who have grown to love her quirky ways as well as her cats. Lessons learned from both of these dear ladies, so different from one another, are ones that stuck with them for the remainder of their lives. Both funny and endearing, this short audio is family friendly and a jewel!

Donald is one of the best story tellers out there

Love the way he tells his stories. He just has a way of immersing you into his world, and sharing really great lessons that he’s learned.

Heartwarming true tales for cat lovers

As a devoted “cat mom”, I truly enjoyed these two stories of real people who were sincerely devoted to their cats. Heartwarming, feel good stories that made me smile many times.

First heard Davis’ storytelling on NPR in 1990s

Cats — don’t let that title fool you. Of course, this is a people-first storybook. (Although, I did hope for more about the pigs!)

So precious — Donald paces his storytelling so they are Carefully told; be prepared to shed a tear inside or out.

PS — the first story I heard by Donald Davis was titled “Listening for the Crack of Dawn” — still one of my favorites
