The Cat Who Looked at the Sky: A Memoir by Thea Welsh

In the tradition of Paul Gallico's the Silent Miaow comes an irresistible true story of three cats, two households, and surrendering to the great truths of life...

When writer Thea Welsh and her partner agree to share the raising of two new kittens with their constantly travelling friends Ron and Robin, the idea seems eminently sensible and straightforward. That's before the cats arrive. And before a beguiling stray arrives to complete the household's feline menage a trois.

Thea expertly captures the personality of each of her charges as they develop from kittenhood to adult life, and their intense relationships with one another and their human companions. (Naturally the shared ownership idea becomes more complicated in practice.)

Full of cat facts (including the results of a landmark study of cat behaviour that revealed that cats in fact do very little), cat drama and wry asides, this is an engaging, witty and affectionate portrait which will appeal to cat lovers everywhere.
