So Funny And Easy To Empathise
Close Encounters Of The Furred Kind by Tom Cox is a wonderful book about Tom and Gemma’s lives with their four cats – Shipley, The Bear, Roscoe and Ralph. It was highly entertaining and I loved it.
All of the cats have their own individual natures and all are equally charming. Tom Cox tells of their lives as they move from Norfolk to Devon. There are delightful encounters with other cats too.
As a cat owner of five myself I could certainly empathise with some of the antics – who hasn’t had a cat sneeze in their face while looking lovingly at you? I found the book really funny and laughed out loud at many instances. And shed a tear at others.
If you are a cat lover and/or owner, you will love this book. A word of caution – there are a few four letter words and phrases that some people may find unacceptable. I however found the cats totally charming and will be looking up their profiles on various social media sites – I kid you not! And I shall certainly be seeking out more of Tom Cox’s books about his cats.
