Kitty Cornered by Bob Tarte

Kitty Cornered: How Frannie and Five Other Incorrigible Cats Seized Control of Our House and Made It Their Home  This book was sent to me by Vera of Luxury Reading for review.

This book starts with a ground-floor plan of Bob and Linda Tarte's home. There are indications of where things occur in this home, all related to the pets that this couple cohabitate with.

Bob and Linda are very into animals, with cats, birds, rabbits in the house and ducks and chickens in the barn.

Bob Tarte litters this book with the personalities of all the animals that encompass his life. There are cats already in the home, but more are acquired during the reading, including the one stray that Bob seems to be the most taken with, Frannie.

The book is enjoyable on learning about the machinations and ups and downs of owning so many different pets. Bob is great at making you understand, as much as he or we can, the different emotions, phobias and quirks of each cat.

This is a good book and there are some very funny instances of man versus animal, with no real battles, but a sense of understanding on both sides.
