Review:
This was not what I  expected; especially looking at the cover..not what I expected...not in a bad way. This was a touching memoir about a husband who lost his wife and found a reason to keep moving and another happiness to help him accept his loss and love another. Three kittens. These three kittens each gave him purpose, happiness, and love with each having their own unique personality. I loved the raw honesty of this memoir as well as the loving memory of his wife as he moves on to the rest of his life in a happy and healthy manner. This book won't be what you expected, it'll be better than you expected.

Excerpt:

My journey has been a long one, a difficult one at times, but it has a happy ending. The three kitties in my life have made it so. They have all helped me to become the happy-to-be-alive man that I am today. I now accept rather than cope. I live each day to the fullest, knowing full well that life is a gift, and a very precious one at that. I look back on my life and I often think that I must be the luckiest man in the world. I have so much to be thankful for. The wonderment and beauty of life are both so dear to me.
  And, to add a delicious icing to the lovely taste of my life, I can say with total honesty to the whole world, my voice booming into the sky, my dancing feet not caring in the least who might see me, that I have been very fortunate to have done something that brings more sheer delight and wonderful pride to me than anything else that I have accomplished in my life: I have fallen madly, heads-over-heels in love not once, but twice, and how many others can say that?
