About the Book

This is a true story set initially in Copster Green, a hamlet, and latterly in Brockhall Village, Lancashire, England. It describes how six cats made their journey from home to home and finally settled down. Part 1 relates to Jet, Rhubarb, and Little from 1991 to 1995. Part 2 relates to Fresco, Litsey, and JJ from 1995 to 2012. In part 1, the story is written as experienced by Jet. In part 2, the story is written as experienced by Fresco. The story demonstrates how cats can sensitively perceive the actions of human beings. The writing makes its greatest contribution in enabling one to understand, in some way, the complex social settings and interactions between cats and people, which can make a difference to both their lives. The author’s wish is that Jet, Rhubarb, Little, Fresco, Litsey, and JJ will always be remembered with great affection and undying love.
