Book #22 Read in 2013
Lost Cat: A True Story of Love, Desperation and GPS Technology by Caroline Paul
Caroline is a cat person. She has two sibling cats--Tibula and Fibula or Tibby and Fibby for sure. Caroline injures her leg which causes her to be couch bound and this lack of moving ability spirals her into a depression. That depression really begins to rage when Tibby, an indoor/outdoor cat, takes off to parts unknown. Caroline launches a search for him, consults pet psychics, pet detectives and put flyers all over the neighborhood. Mysteriously, five weeks later Tibby shows back up, none the worst for wear. Caroline then becomes obsessed with finding out where Tibby went and used technology such as GPS and a pet camera to try to figure it out.
This was a cute, quick read. Cat people will get the obsessive nature of Caroline's search. Tibby and Fibby were distinct feline personalities and that was shown well through the writing.
I received a copy of this book from the Amazon Vine program in exchange for a review.
