I was really hoping for more of the same with Paw Tracks at Owl Cottage and to a degree this was what I got. However, while there are a number of amusing anecdotes, quite a few of these still recount the days of Toby Jug, despite the fact that by the end of this book, O'Conor has four more cats to write about! There are also times when the book lapses into quite prolonged descriptions of each cat's appearance and character which to the reader who has not known any of them, can seem to drag a little.
That said, it is a nice light-hearted read which I think most cat lovers would enjoy, if few others. There's a definite cosy contentment with life that comes across strongly in O'Conor's memoir and that in itself makes for a pleasant and relaxing reading experience. What's more, it is clear that if there is one thing that the author loves almost as much as cats (apart from maybe his wife and his two time home Owl Cottage) it is words and relishing using them. This comes across strongly in many of the lovely descriptive sections and I suspect that the opportunity to express himself in this way really underlies this book as much as the wish to continue and round off the story of Owl Cottage and the cats that have lived and apparently still live there.
cried a couple of times but it was so sensitive and detailed-passed it to my two daughters to read aged 14 and 11-they enjoyed the first one so much.Shirley Ambler

A wonderful tale about the love between man and cat that had me in tears.
I would recommend it to all lovers of cat's.
Having read, Paw Tracks in the Moonlight, I was keen to read Paw Tracks at Owl Cottage. When Toby Jug died, I cried for 2 nights; I read mostly in bed, you see. Read morePublished 3 months ago by strange love
