Catwalk: A Feline Odyssey - Giveaway 08/15

I had the pleasure of reviewing Catwalk: A Feline Odyssey by Kathie Freeman. I have always had a soft spot for cats and still do to this day. I am definitely what you would call a cat-lover or a crazy cat lady! Anyone who feels the way I do about cats will absolutely love this book, but make sure you have a tissue box handy!

Catwalk is a story that follows a tabby cat named Tiger; from the beginning when she was taken in by a newlywed couple as a kitten to her struggle for survival and her search for home. This book will appeal to all animal lovers and people of all ages.

Although I wanted to wring the necks of those who hurt poor Tiger, I was also riveted by her story of trying to keep herself and her babies safe and warm and fed. Tiger ends up meeting a variety of characters along her journey including a Cajun fisherman who gets caught by a local game warden, a trio of hobo's, a circus crew, and also a pair of warehouse workers who want to give her a home.

I really loved this book. The story was sad at times, but little Tiger always manages to carry on despite adversity and danger. I just wanted to take Tiger in and keep her safe! Kathie Freeman obviously knows cats and their behavior, as her writing and description of cats, and their characteristics was spot-on. Ms. Freeman manages to take the reader right into the world of Tiger and show us her perspective on things around her, nice or not. This book will capture your heart and make you wish Tiger the safety and comfort of a loving forever home. I would highly recommend Catwalk: A Feline Odyssey to anyone.
