When he first ambled into Paul Magrs's yard--skinny, covered in flea bites, and missing all but one-and-a-half teeth--Fester knew he'd found his family. Paul and his partner Jeremy thought it was the ragged black-and-white stray, tired from a rough life on the streets, who was in desperate need of support. But clever Fester knew better. This is the true story of an extraordinary little cat whose gentle charm and trusting soul turned two young men into a family.

Wonderful to read, and to have linger in the memory. One of the best animal books I've ever read. It ranks up there with The Possibility Dogs in appealing to readers' hearts AND heads.

I'm going to edit my comments above to say that after mulling over the book for the past 2 weeks, I've decided it's one of the BEST BOOKS I've ever read, period. It's about two gay men and the dear little tomcat they took into their house and their lives, yes, and they all were the richer and healthier for it, yes. And it's a true story, yes, But overall it's a love story, and I loved it. I recommend it to people on a daily basis, because I think it will make the readers' lives richer.

I don't want to OVER rate it, because I don't want anyone to be disappointed in it, but still I hope you'll read it. And even if you're not a cat or gay or a man, as I am not, I think you'll like the book :-).
