This title celebrates the joys and the heartache of living with cats. It tells the true story of two cats. One is the old, loyal, but independent Septi, very much his own cat, established as lord of his domain within Moon Cottage. The other being Otto, a tiny, delicate tortoiseshell kitten, who joins the household as the story begins and who, for her survival and in a manner particular to her, must set out to win Septi over. This memoir should ring true with all who love cats and is a testimony and a tribute to that unique and rewarding relationship which exists between humans and their feline companions in which cats, in their splendid complexity, remain among us, but not of us.
Marilyn Edwards works in publishing. She lives in Hertfordshire with her husband, his son and their three cats, Fannie, Titus and Pushkin, successors to Septi and Otto. This is her first book.
