A Tale of Two Kitties
"A Tale of Two Kitties" chronicles the lives of Emily and Chapin, two black cats adopted by a couple of teachers, one of whom never had and never wanted a pet. This non-fiction narrative is also the story of the author's transformation into the devoted servant of his two cats, who have brought extraordinary comfort and joy into the lives of their guardians. From their humble beginnings in a small Connecticut town, our alter ego felines are forced to relocate to Florida when their guardians retire and to move again several years later, this time to Virginia, when hurricanes disrupt their lives. Over the course of more than a decade, Emily, named for the reclusive poet, and Chapin, named for the gregarious singer, become unique companions for their adoptive parents, filling their lives with love and affection, comfort and joy, despite conflicts and crises, an inevitable part of life. Written with humor and affection, this memoir is for millions of cat lovers whose daily lives have been enriched by the creature described by daVinci as "nature's masterpiece."
