Mel once told me his wife used to often ask him who he loved more, her or his cat Mr. C. I asked him how he responded and he said sometimes you just have to lie.
The Old Man and the Cat A Love Story by Nils Uddenberg is very moving, for cats lovers, book about how a stray Norwegian cat came to play a central part in the life of a seventy five year old man and his wife. Anyone who has had a cat take over their life will relate well to this book.
