Book Review: The Story of Fester Cat

The Story of Fester Cat: How One Remarkable Cat Changed Two Men's Lives
Published by The Penguin Group, November 2014
ISBN 978-0-425-27504-7


A seasoned off-and-on again street cat decides he wants a permanent home, and he chose Paul and Jeremy to be his humans.  The three guys learn a lot about each other...and this sweet story by Paul Magrs, as told by Fester himself.  With only one-and-a-half teeth, Fester's crooked grin brings a family together, as they sit in the backyard enjoying the pond, or typing feverishly in front of the computer.  With wonderful wry humor, Fester, Paul and Jeremy redefine rules to make their own oasis of love, with the help or non-help of neighbors, relatives, friends, and a parade of community cats.

P.S. Ungow is Fester's version of 'meow'.
