Vicki once again writes a great and compelling book, I will not spoil this for anyone but you must read all the way to the end, which can be hard for cat lovers. Dewey's life as told by her was mesmerizing as well as her insights into a small town and it's library and how a library works and her dreams and how she made them real for it. In this second book we get additional accounts of different cats and people along with a few more things about Dewey, especially after his death, it's not always feel-good and has some sorrow, so be prepared for that but it's worth all that to get to the end.
Having heard about Dewey, the library cat, I was curious. This book, not the original, is both a sequel in that it follows other cats similar to Dewey insofar as they changed their humans' lives; however, it also is something of an autobiography of Vicki Myron, in that she weaves other details of Dewey's and her own life into the stories she tells of these other cats. Cat lovers will enjoy these stories and see their own special animals in the events that are covered.
What I enjoyed most was the creative names Vicki gives her special "library" cats, and the uplifting manner in which the book moves from the difficulties all experienced, often as kittens, before being adopted by--or adopting--the humans who came to be so much a part of their lives. I will read anything about cats, which is why I refer to myself as a Cat a holic.

I wrote it out that way, otherwise it looks like im saying Catholic, which I am no longer. Anyway, Myron knows how to perfectly describe tje relationship between human and feline. The grave is almost 10, years old, and the cat closely resembled the African wildcat. For a writer the detail is tantalising—why were they buried together?
Were cats already companion animals by then? We may never know the social or emotional history behind the gravesite, but science can give us some facts. Genetic studies show that cats were probably first domesticated in Mesopotamia and were later brought to Cyprus and Egypt. It was during the so-called Age of Discovery, when man set off in sailing ships to explore the world, that cats really came into their own. They were carried on board to control rodents and as good luck charms, and thus made their way to all corners of the globe.
I like the idea of a cat comforting a cabin boy a long way from home, or cuddling up with a grumpy sailor in his hammock. However, while dogs have generally modified their wild behaviour in order to coexist with us, cats have not altered much since the first wildcat—most likely a jungle cat from southeast Asia, an African wildcat, a Chinese mountain or an Arabian sand cat—threw their natural caution to the winds, no doubt for the same reason a stray can be tamed now: What was it that early man saw in cats that meant cats were elevated to a more exalted status than dogs?
