Be Careful if You Have Lost a Cat...

Ah, listening to this audiobook was the sweetest pain and awfulest pleasure! I've never been so moved by any audiobook (tears, runny nose, even sobs!). It must be because last year we lost our beloved feline companion of 18 years, but it's also surely because James Herriot deeply sympathizes with, loves, and understands cats and their humans and because Christopher Timothy feels the same about Herriot's stories. Listening to the savory and vivid descriptions of the feline friends, arching their backs and purring thunderously and fulfilling vital roles in their people's lives, and then hearing of them falling ill and wasting away, and then being filled with an almost unbearable suspense as to whether or not Dr. Herriot will find and cure what ails them... well, it's all just the heart of the sad transience and amazing beauty of living beings in our wonderful world.
