5.0 out of 5 stars The secret life of a cat
A quaint story about two children grieving for their cat. They hear the mewing of cats in the garden of their house to find that they are mourning the passing of the children's cat.

1.0 out of 5 stars What a shame for you!
Someone hadn't looked in the first book I was sent. There were only two pages which were not stuck to the next one. It was unreadable. That is why I gave it one star. It was the most expensive book and maked as used, not unusable as it was.
When I was sent a replacement I was very pleased with it and you would have got four stars if you had sent the second one first

5.0 out of 5 stars The secret life of a cat, 1 Jun 2000
By A Customer
A quaint story about two children grieving for their cat. They hear the mewing of cats in the garden of their house to find that they are mourning the passing of the children's cat. Fred had a secret life other than the one the children saw: he was a pop singer. Fred's secret life was well known amongst the neighbourhood pets. The children join the cats in their wake for Fred. I'm not sure whether this is a book for children or adults, but I think that you will enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic childrens (adult!) book, 22 Jun 2008
By 
Mrs. E. M. Hudson (UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
I read this book over ten years ago, and the memories of it have remained fresh ever since. Only this afternoon, my friend and I were reminising about reading it in our local library and simultaneously broke into song to sing the funeral song...."Meaow meaow, meoooo, oh waily waily woooo...."
I recommend this to anyone with children, or anyone who has cats, or basically just anyone. Just read and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for children of all ages, 23 Oct 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My son is nearly eight and has just discovered this book in the. Its a great book for gently introducing a child to the fact that their pets will pass away, but that there's nothing wrong in celebrating all that they were in life as well as mourning their death.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for children who have suffered a loss, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fred (Paperback)
Very good for children who have lost a pet or even a friend / relative recently (sadly we lost both within two weeks of each other). Our 6 year old and 3 year old loved it. Helped them understand about funerals and grieving. They were a bit disappointed we hadn't had a bigger funeral for the cat though.
