This is a great little book--very touching.
From the back cover:
Grace the Cat is not at all like me, as she is forever bent on mischief. But because I am an older and wiser cat, she looks to me for counsel, and so I have allowed Grace to prevail upon me to set down the story of my life as a housecat in the human world. . . .

As the irrepressible Foudini M. Cat regales us with his adventures, an exciting story unfolds. After his valiant but frail mother leaves him in search for food and never returns, the starving kitten is taken, hissing and spitting, to a frightening room with cages and men in white coats. Facing the specter of eternal sleep, the homeless cat is adopted by a woman he later calls "Warm." ("All cats like to make up strange names for things.")

From here Foudini enchants us with splendid tales of his unlikely but ultimately poignant friendship with Sam the Dog; their trips between Cold House in the city and Mouse House in the country; his mystical experiences with famous felines of the past; his near-death in a raging river that leads to a profound act of sacrifice; and his introduction to a silly young thing named Grace, which evolves into something completely unexpected.

This is a very unique book, and extremely well done. Susan Fromberg Schaeffer must be a keen observer of cats and human beings alike. She portrays the inner life of a feline with impeccable accuracy and leads her readers to contemplate the human condition in the process.

Wow it arrived so fast. Foudini is safe here in NJ. Thank you so much, ReallyBookish, for sharing this with me. I am really looking forward to this one: I put at the top of my Mt TBR. The crazy fab four furballs insist I read it next. =^..^=

A heart-warming, amusing and charming book about the life of Foudini M. Cat. Foudini's relationship with the dog is really special but my favorite part is when Freud's cat comes to Foudini in a dream.
It is a lovely book.
