by Willie Morris
There are cat people, and there are dog people. And there is Willie Morris. Morris, the author of My Dog Skip, was a self-proclaimed dog person until he met his fiancée. His fiancée was a cat person. In fact, he refers to her as Cat Woman in this memoir of a man and his feline.
Anyway, the Cat Woman introduces Morris to cats, and he is never the same after that. Morris saves the life of Spit McGee when the kitten is born, and a lifelong friendship is born from the experience. From Spit, Morris learns that cats are smart and independent and just as loving as his dog, Skip.
A quick, thin memoir of a Southern gentleman and his newfound love of felines. Delightful.
