Very comical book for those of us who love our kitties and want them to love us and much as we love them. This author is a hoot, she lays her soul bare in her effort to understand her kittie's brief sojourn away from her home. This is a therapy book for all of us who look at the silly thinks we do for our kitties to make them happy and then realize they will go with whoever feeds them. Sigh.

Truly for kitteh people. The story and the illustrations, not to mention the psychology of cat and human, made me laugh and cry. I looooooooooved this book.

This was a sweet, funny, and relatable story for any cat lover. When Caroline's cat goes missing, her true crazy cat lady emerges, unleashing desperation, love, and new found tech and social skills. I quick read, which lovely illustrations by Caroline's partner.

Any kitty lover can appreciate Caroline Paul's humor, devotion and manic-depressive curiosity when it comes to ascertaining her feline's whereabouts. (Warning: If you don't like animal memoirs where a pet dies, skip a couple of the middle chapters. In this case it is not the title character, but it's still touching and emotional.)

For an added bonus, visit the website www.lostcatbook.com where you can find some of the artwork, learn tips about how to track your cat, and submit your own "lost cat" story for lostcatbook on Tumblr.

Sweet, funny little story of a missing kitty and the two women who love him and wonder where on earth he goes when he leaves home, only to return looking like he'd spent time at a spa. We had a cat like that once and we wondered, too!

Full of charming illustrations, this is a wonderful (and quick) read about a woman doing everything she can think of to try to figure out where her cat has been after he suddenly reappears 5 weeks after going missing. I smiled, laughed, and I’m not ashamed to say that I also cried like a baby.

I loved both the charming illustrations and the story in this sweet little book about a woman who is bed-ridden, and so has the time to wonder - where does the cat disappear to all day?

This is a super fast read, but a perfect, amusing, sweet and laugh out loud funny book to read when you have a spare hour here or there. The illustrations are hilarious and the writing quick and quirky. For anyone who has wondered about the secret thoughts and lives of their pets, this funny little book is a gift.
