Default The Cat Who Had Two Lives

The cat who came in from the cold...
He was bone thin, scruffy, and feverish when he crawled out from under a wagonful of pumpkins and laid his head on Bob Huxley's foot. Sally Huxley fed him scrambled eggs, he purred weakly, and they all accepted the inevitable.
They called him Pip and nursed him back to health, while consenting to the rules he gently established for their relationship--no barn living, no cut-rate cat food, no benign neglect. Pip required the best of everything, especially love.
But even love couldn't save Pip from petty feline problems: nasty pills, the pushy tomcat next door, a puppy rival, irksome car trips, inedible Bucks County wildlife, and the sudden perils of woods and road.
Anyone who has ever loved a cat will lap up this heartwarming true story of the little being who got a second chance at life and made the most of it...even as he turned his human friends' notions about themselves and the world upside down.
Customer Review: Another unique feline lovingly remembered.
Author Sally Huxley and her husband Bob are just getting settled into their new country home when they find themselves adopted by a sickly stray cat, which the couple eventually name Pip. How they adjust to their new companion and the interesting adventures they share make for the usual heartwarming collection of Cute Cat Stories that climax with a tragic end, Pip meeting the fate of many an outdoor cat. Huxley tries a half-hearted pro-and-con argument about whether keeping a cat indoors all the time or letting it out is better or worse. I am a devout "In" and Pip's fate is the reason why. The book, while a little uneven in the linking of cute memories, will undoubtedly warm the hearts, before leaving the inevitable lump in the throat, of its cat loving readers.
