...For anyone looking for a couple of hours enjoyment, who knows, suffers and loves the little blighters......

This is the tale of Squirt the cat and his adventures around his home in the Scottish countryside. Alongside his self proclaimed tales of derring-do Squirt, through the use of Staff at the computer, talks about other more general topics from his own feline point of view. We also meet other denizens of the area, his friends such as Wilbur and Smurf and enemies, TC and the evil Box Man.

The book is written as a selection of diary entries starting at just after his birth and chronicling his life and deeds interspersed with a selection of thoughts on cats, dogs, people, staff as they are known, and the wider world in general, at least as far as a cat is willing to understand it. Each entry, short though they are, gives a little bit extra each time, building up this world from a cats eye view, not just the area around, but the well-defined attitude that Squirt has.

I quite enjoyed these tales and as a cat owner myself, I can certainly relate to the viewpoints of both the cats and the poor staff left running around after them. The author certainly has spent plenty of time observing them, for the cats to feel as real as they do. The only issue I have with it is the length as it seems ripe for more stories. Hopefully the ending can give rise to a whole new set of tales.

I would recommend this book for anyone looking for a couple of hours enjoyment, who knows, suffers and loves the little blighters, and I hope that a new book of further adventures does come along.

Other reviews you might like:


  • Pineapple Lies
    Fans of cozy mystery or small town stories will love this book, and frankly so will anyone looking for something to lift the mood, a clean romance, or a comedy of errors crossed with farce.
  • The Day I Washed My Face in the Toilet
    Family chaos? Oh yes. A good book for teenagers? Again yes, although it would probably appeal to YA readers of any age, as the older ones can look back and laugh.
  • Kung Fu Carp Fishing
    An absolutely hilarious guide to fishing, perhaps useful for fishermen, definitely entertaining to everyone. I fully recommend this. Now I'm going to read it again.
