I have to confess up front that I am a long-time cat lover. I do love our one dog Bella (a beautiful golden retriever) but my heart beats for the three cats who currently make-up part of my family. And if you’re anything like me the stories about my pets are plentiful. The occasional time when I do run out of my own stories and anecdotes, I go looking for others. I was thrilled to discover local author Kathy Chisholm’s new book Urban Tigers: tales of a cat vet. In this book Chisholm tells the tale of Dr. Emily McBride’s first year at the fictional Ocean View Cat Hospital in Halifax. I laughed out loud a few times and the tears threatened to overflow on a few more occasions. The cast of characters, human and feline, carried this story and left me wishing for more! Chisholm tells her tale in a human, funny and realistic way and takes us behind the scenes with the people who care for our beloved four-legged family members.
P.S. When Kathy recently read from this book at the Keshen Goodman library she let it slip that there was a sequel to this book already in the works. Keep a watch out in our catalogue for the next installment.
