Publisher's Summary

Tuck and Ginger are two cats who get on each other's nerves. But they need to pause the claws if they’re to escape from the high-rise apartment where they are trapped. And escape they must, for their kidnappers – Rodney and Janice Burringo – are warty wicked witches who want to use Tuck and Ginger’s body parts to build the best witches’ cat in the world: a black Purrari.
Tuck, who’s a few granules short of a litter-tray, and Ginger, a cynical street fighter gone to seed, must overcome their differences and survive a list of unlikely adventures if they’re to escape alive from the beastly Burringos and their toxic gases before it’s too late.

Clever, funny story for the whole family

Looking for the perfect road trip audiobook for the family? Cats on the Run might be just the thing! This is a hilarious, clever story full of tongue twisters, rhymes, witches, and cats that is fun for adults and kids, as long as no one is too bothered by potty humor, fart jokes, and cannibalistic witches. The narrator does a terrific job presenting an entertaining performance of the book.

Oh Moon, Oh Moon! A comedic ROFLMAO cat tail Tale

Any additional comments?

Ged Gillmore's Cats on the Run teamed up with nouveau narrator Deborah Wiseman (no other books are listed under her name during a search) for the funniest story, with its "in your face" ... erm "in your ear" interactive dialogues.
I usually don't care for authors talking to the readers. Had I picked up the ebook, I may have shelved it into my TBR. But Ms Wiseman talked me into curling up with my kitten and giggle.
Tuck and Ginger have an adventure of a lifetime and I certainly wouldn't want them to persuade my kitten to go out into the world! (But if he does, can I hire those two to chaperone?)
An entertaining book, with a narrator who is equally lively. The combination invites the reader to leave the world behind, laugh out loud, and talk back to answer questions (audience participation is encouraged!!).
Listen to the book.
I callenge you to not break a smile, bust a gut... or not repeat (*insert text here*) or crow Oh Moon! Oh Moon in the exact off key chords ... I bet you rewind just to hear it again!
I Love LOve LOVe LOVE LOVE this audio.
Would you listen to Cats on the Run again? Why?
It's completely on my very short list (I could count this list on one hand) I would listen to sporadically throughout the year.
Oh, yeah. To make sure no one tries to TDO you for a psychological evaluation, listen to this discreetly and while alone ... Voice inflections of the crones and your reactions throughout the book might save your sanity, but others may question it an impromptu interruption occurs.
If you can't tell; highly recommending this exaggerated performance (imagine how the Seinfeld cast or Jim Carrey 'body performs' their roles). If I could, I'd gift everyone this book!!
On the downside, I'm not sure if another book will receive all 5 stars after this ...
I review all books I listen to or read, but am required to add this:

An awesome audio book that made us laugh out loud!

What made the experience of listening to Cats on the Run the most enjoyable?

The characters really come to life in this new audio book, wonderfully voiced by super talent Deborah Wiseman. The witches' dastardly plans sound all the more gruesome; the various cat characters take on their own personas, as they fight to stay one step ahead of the evil Burringos. This is a nicely-paced story, with lots of quirky details and believable characters.

What other book might you compare Cats on the Run to, and why?

There is something quite Roald Dahl about some of the alliteration and whacky words.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The showdown at the end between Rodney and Janice and the four cats.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

If you don't like cats you just haven't met the right one.

Any additional comments?

This would be a wonderful audio book for a long road trip. In addition, there is also some humor hidden in the story that only parents / adults will get. I'd recommend it for ages 8 upwards.

A hilarious tale of mischievous animals

What did you like most about Cats on the Run?

I loved the variety of the characters, the hilarious accents and funny voices from the narrator
as well as the use of alliteration and rhyming words.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really enjoyed listening to the character of Ginger with her six bellies and ability to meow in lots of languages. She really made me laugh out loud!

Which character – as performed by Deborah Wiseman – was your favourite?

My favourite character is Juan Carlos the Spanish talking toad!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I think overall this book is very cleverly written and narrated. It is an easy listen for parents and children to enjoy together, particularly teaching children lessons throughout e.g. waiting for the light signals to cross the road.

Any additional comments?

I will definitely be listening to this book again and will be bringing it for our upcoming family road trip! Meow.

Purrrrfect!

Would you listen to Cats on the Run again? Why?

I'm keeping Cats on the Run in my Audible library as a go to for car trips, especially with kids!

What did you like best about this story?

The story is entwined with very funny jokes.

Which character – as performed by Deborah Wiseman – was your favourite?

Deborah Wiseman captures both Tuck's scaredy-cat voice and Ginger's annoyance perfectly!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

We couldn't stop laughing at the Budapest joke.

Any additional comments?

I bought this audiobook only because I loved the real life book so much. I was a little worried that I might not like it as much as I liked the actual book. Well I was most happy to find Deborah Wiseman's reading of my favourite book to be just purrrrfect! I blame cats on the run for my inability to spell perfect without questioning whether it's perfect or purfect, which is I guess an advantage to the audiobook, hilarious spelling is no longer a problem! But my favourite thing about this audiobook is being able to share it with someone. Laugh out loud at the same time. I enjoyed listening, and laughing, to cats on the run on a recent road trip with my wife. Can't wait to do a road trip with actual kids in the car! I think this book is Purrrrfect for ages 8 upwards.
