Comical cat memoir meets hope-filled faith parable in this new release written by the cat with a little help from his (human) friends. Laddie is one of those rare finds that’s for both kids and adults. Because let’s face it—for better or worse, everyone in the house knows the cat.
“A beautiful story for readers everywhere. Kids will be drawn into Laddie the cat’s world and leave with and understanding of the changing power of love…” ~ Ashley Sherman, MSW, M.Ed., K-12 Licensed School Counselor
We all know about cats, right? They have nine lives. They always lands on their feet.
But what if a cat really only has one life? And he’s just been tossed off a cruise ship. And he does not land on his feet.
Meet Laddie, an uppity noble British cat who spends his days scarfing down fancy food and reading cat gossip magazines. When his mother, the famous feline opera diva Catarina von Caterwaul, invites him on her tour to New York City via luxury cruise, Laddie is delighted to come along.
But upon arrival, Laddie “accidentally” tumbles into cold, murky New York Harbor. He crawls out of the water with nothing but the drenched designer clothing on his back. Then he’s bullied by a ragtag urban cat gang just itching to throw him right back where he came from. Except there’s no going back for Laddie.
So curl up in a chair, put on a cat-like, expectant stare and come along on Laddie’s journey from a British countryside estate through the mean streets of Manhattan to suburban Raleigh. And see that yes, we can land on our feet. But it’s often by way of divine intervention in places and through people (and cats) we never expect.
