Book Description

15 Oct 2010
When Denis O’Connor rescues a three-week-old kitten from certain death during a snowstorm, little does he know how this tiny creature will change his life forever. Against all odds the kitten – who he names Toby Jug – survives and forms an unusually strong bond with his rescuer. Set against the rural splendour of Northumberland, Paw Tracks in the Moonlight charmingly chronicles the adventures of one man and his Maine Coone cat. From an invasion of bees at Owl Cottage to the case of the disappearing tomatoes, life with Toby Jug – who believes himself to be human – is never dull. Nevertheless, it is only when Denis and Toby Jug embark on a summer camping trip on horseback in the Cheviot Hills that a new world opens up for them both.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purrfect 24 Oct 2006
Format:Paperback
I won this book in a competition (in a cat magazine). I loved this book (well, it was about a cat) & have lent it to several fellow cat lovers! I thoroughly enjoyed this book, as I fell in love with Toby Jug & laughed at his adventures & totally understood how he had changed his "owner" life forever! The illustrations were also good (I couldn't quite imagine the jug with cotton wool). My cats were lying in bed with me as I finished the book - I was stroking them, happy to have them with me, but at the same time I was crying my eyes out, as heartbroken as the author was.

A must read for cat lovers!

5.0 out of 5 stars EMOTION, 18 Nov 2009
Format:Paperback
From when I received this wonderful book I was smitten, it is absolutely fantastic. Its funny, emotional, caring, warm and has a feel better factor. Everything came to life, I could see all that was happening and to see TOBY JUG sitting on his masters shoulder was wonderful and histerical. One of the best books I have ever read. I ordered this book after reading a short piece shown in the Mail Newspaper. I didn't need to know anything else I immediately ordered it. I have had dealings with a Norwegian Forest Cat, which is very similar one to the Maine Coone and I absolutely enjoyed every bit of the book. I just want the cat now.

An excellent story of how a man's kind act towards a kitten (Toby Jug) develops into a strong bond.As the story unfolds it becomes obvious that Toby Jug has human characteristics.A truly heartwarming story with a combination of humurous and sad events.
I would thoroughly recommend this book to any cat lovers, or altenativley it would make a welcome present for any other cat lovers that you may know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply wonderful 31 Oct 2007
By Zoe
Format:Paperback
I'm not usually a fan of real life stories but this book had me gripped from the start. I fell for Toby Jug just as the author did and although I knew the inevitable conclusion to the story was coming I was hoping that it would be put off just a little longer, so great were the feelings for this little cat that the author had managed to conjure. I was in tears by the end of the book, saddened for the author's loss but also thankful that he shared this story with us.

This book is a must read, whether you're a cat lover or not. If you aren't a cat lover, I feel confident in saying you will love Toby Jug by the end of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars paw tracks in the moonlight 7 Nov 2009
By M. Reay
Format:Paperback
Denis O'Connor's Paw Tracks in the Moonlight is a must he has written a year in the life of 'Toby Jug' his best friend. I laughed and cried and held my own Persian cats Jasmin and Suki whilst reading If you have feelings for our feline companions of any size or breed, please, please, - 'read this book'.

It will be undone from Christmas wrapping on the 25th December morning by a number of my my Cat Lover Friends, "Barbara" in particular who befriended 'Katie' who was considered beyond help too.

This was not illness, but she was deemed to be out of control having had two owners too many, becoming very spiteful and anti social. Three years later she is now a stunning black long haired she cat who adores her quiet life with a once lonely lady. I hope she will be inspired by Denis's book to maybe write about her experiences with her best friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a beautiful, uplifting book!! 27 July 2010
By corben
Format:Paperback
At first glance, the books cover did make me think it could be aimed more to the younger generation......how wrong could I have been.
I was glued to the book from start to finish! It made me laugh, cry and be in awe of the beautiful relationship between the author and this amazing cat.....Toby Jug.
I recommend this book to anyone who has a love of cats....but also anyone who needs to be uplifted and given a warm tingly feeling inside.
