A Letter to My Cat Editorial Reviews
If you wrote a letter to your cat expressing your affection, would it be humorous, silly, serious, or poignant? Erspamer (Letters to My Dog) has compiled a variety of notes written by 65 cat owners, including Dr. Mehmet Oz, Mariel Hemingway, and actress Rosanna Arquette, along with veterinarians, photographers, artists, and people associated with the entertainment industry. Included are missives to purebreds, rescues, blind and disabled felines, and those who won the hearts of “dog people.” Among the most heartwarming is from a soldier returned from Afghanistan, who, later, with the help of others, secretly transported Koshka the cat to the United States. Also moving is the ode to Scooter, who lost the use of his legs and with the assistance of a kitty “mobility” wagon now visits nursing homes. Each correspondence includes a lovely color photo of these best friends and an appendix with thumbnail images of owners and cats. VERDICT After reading these letters, cat owners might be inspired to write notes to their kitties. Not a necessary purchase yet recommended where there’s demand.—Eva Lautemann, formerly with Georgia Perimeter Coll. Lib., Clarkston
