The Old Man and the Cat by Nils Uddenberg 2015

A post by Ambrosia Boussweau, European Director 

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.

        Not Mel u

Mel, I'm more a dog person but I can see how one can have affinity for pets. We have a female dog and she is more than family.
