Mum read this book to me and as you can see from the above pic I enjoyed it so much that I dozed off. That's me after the book ended. I didn't sleep through Mum's reading, if that's what you think! As you know, cats are always listening in even when we appear to be sleeping.
I loved Timba, the sweet little black cat, immediately. He is a great little character, strong and resilient, loving and forgiving, and his purpose in life is to be a healing support cat for a young troubled boy called Leroy and a nice kindhearted lady called Angie. He also has to help his brother Vati, a sensitive and mystical cat, and quite a different character to Timba. But they need each other and together they are a strong force.
When the two brothers are abandoned as kittens, they become separated but luckily fate brings them together again in order to help the people they love.
There is a lot of love and healing in this book. And it sensitively portrays the amazing bond between a cat and his humans. Parts of it brought tears to my mum's eyes, and I of course offered her my own healing purrs to soothe her as she stopped reading to kiss me on my forehead and hug me close.
Mum sometimes says that it's me and her against the world, and in this book it seems that it's Timba and Vati against the world too as they are twin souls (like me and mum!).
I don't want to give too much of the plot away, but if you enjoy books from the perspective of a cat, warmly told and with a touch of spirituality, then this book is for you! It also makes a great heartwarming Christmas gift for any cat lover.
