A Cat Named Squeeky: 10/27/12

A Cat Named Squeeky by Vic Reskovic is a memoir of a stray cat who befriended the author and decided to make her home there. Because of her unusual vocalizations he named her Squeeky.

Reskovic explains early on that he and his wife had never had a pet. They weren't looking to get a cat. But they quickly learned that cats often pick their homes and their people.

The book reminded me of Dewey by Vicki Myron. This is another memoir of the life of a cat with all the details of someone unfamiliar with cats learning how to live with a cat. Like Dewey, Squeeky had a long life, even if it did start out as a stray.

Although A Cat Named Squeeky sat on my wishlist for nearly two years, I happened to read it after a stray kitten charmed her way into my life. So I read it while making mental comparisons to my own experiences with Tortuga kitten.

I recommend the book to cat people.

Three stars
