Great 4 a First Timer Aug 9, 2007
I found the book to be very enjoyable, or would have if I had not already read all of James Herriot's other books. If you are just looking for a book that has the absolute sweetest stories about cats and their crazy antics, and do not plan to read any of his regular books such as "All Creatures Great and Small" and the like, then this is the book for you. But for those who have or will read his other books, don't bother it is only a repeat of the cat stories. Those of you who have not experienced a James Herriot story are missing out especially if you love animals like I do or are interested in the procedures and drugs used on animals for different ailments back in 1930s Scotland by a country vet.
