Book Review of SpecialT: Nine Lives - Nine Names

About the Book: Cats teach us some of life's most important lessons. After all, nine lives allow them time to get things right.

God, in His infinite wisdom and I imagine a chuckle or two, often uses one of His marvelous creatures get our attention. I'm convinced that SpecialT, an older, gentle, tabby cat, was divinely led to my home and into my heart because some of the principles I had previously learned about family, friendship, and God's faithfulness needed reinforcing.

Our Thoughts: We have read many different memoirs, but this one is so unique. Not only because it is about a cat, but also how this one cat showed his family and those touched with his feliane ways that life is to be explored, enjoyed and shared with all around you. Boyer's story tugs at your heart. You don't need to be an animal lover to enjoy this book, but it is the perfect gift for those who are.

Boyer traces the story from when she first saw SpecialT appear on her doorstep and how she knew that this older cat would be the pet who would grace her life always. And SpecialT did grace her life for many years to come. His story reveals how delightful life can end up being if we can find the path God wants for us, take it, persevere, and not look back.

We could relate to how Boyer felt when SpecialT passed away. Boyer's written goodbye to this cat will surely pull at your heartstrings. One of our reviewers sons also had a beloved cat for many years. She said, "It took a long time to stop weeping and grieving. Even now as a young man he still gets tears in his eyes when he sees a picture of his childhood furry friend."
