This book is for all the cat owners who have ever looked at their cats and wondered, "What is that cat thinking?" Here is your chance to find out. On a lonely road just a short walk from Max Brannigan's house, Sorcha Anders is running from a murderer when Max's Cousin's murderous widow throws his cat Bella into the windshield of Sorcha's car, hoping to kill the cat she feels is trying to interfere with her hopes of getting Max to notice her. Bella can feel her life ebbing and she pleads, “I want to live.” When Sorcha tumbles from the car she pleads to God to take her and spare the cat.
God must have been listening because as Max and his brother are returning from helping his mother with her stalled car he nearly runs off the road to avoid a woman as she stumbles onto the road into the path of his car. As he heads back to his car he sees a gray mass not far from the woman's car and thinks it must be a squirrel because his cat is home safe. The woman in his arm drapes all over him but will not answer any of his questions. Does she understand English? Was she hurt in the crash? When he mentions taking her to the hospital she runs.
Belle doesn't know what happened or how but she wants her body back and out of the furless human one. Sorcha isn't sure how she ended up in the body of the cat that was thrown at her car. The last thing she remembers is looking into the eyes of a dying cat knowing she could not see another living creature die and begging God to let her die instead. Now she is hiding knowing the cat must be in her body. She cannot let the two men coming towards her catch her before she finds her body and switches back.
What ensues is a hilarious story as Max struggles to get out from under the mantel of being responsible for everyone in his family. Sorcha and Bella try to figure out how to get back into their own bodies and yet stay alive as killers try to keep them from telling anyone what they know.
I loved reading Cattitude. Edie Ramer is a wonderful author that always brings a smile to my face and a life to my spirit when I read one of her books, and this one is no exception. She uses humor to make you fall in love with the characters. Bell, the cat, whether in her cat body or the human borrowed one depicts every cat I was blessed to call owner in my lifetime. She quickly became my favorite character, even though Max, Ted, Sorcha, and Tory are well written and very believable. You will cry for and with Gwen. There will be characters that make your heart race with fear and others that make it race with desire. It is up to you to place all the characters how you see them.
If you like a little humor mixed with a couple of murdering sociopaths then you will definitely adore Cattitude. Do not miss a chance to read it today.
After you finish Cattitude check out Edie Ramer’s miracle interrupted series next.
