I gave this one a fourth star because: a) I'm not really a cat person, and b) I feared the book might be too chick-lit-y ... and I ended up really liking it - I've read reviews complaining that it's too much of a Gwen memoir, and not Homer-centered enough, but ... hey ... it's about his effect on her life! Gwen keeps the book moving along well, so that I never really found it got bogged down.
I'm glad I listen to the audio version, though the narrator's voice disconcertingly reminded me of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Milhone; her (little boy) "Homer" voice took some getting used to, but by the end I realized it was a good fit for his personality. I bailed early on during the final 30 minute "discussion" between Gwen and her husband, feeling their experiences had been covered well enough in the book.

I really enjoyed this book. I am a catlover, own two cats, and can totally relate to many of the cat antics described throughout the book. I never considered the needs of some special cats and this book has opened my eyes to the many animals that need a good home. Like Gwen, I could not consider having 3 cats, but if a special needs cat like Homer was to come into my path, this book has helped me learn that I too would be able to adopt and love and provide a wonderful loving home for that cat.
Also, ten percent of these purchases are going toward helping other animals in need.
