Possibly the next Marley and Me (Good Housekeeping)
Cat-lovers will be charmed and amused by Brown's lively description of the imperious way in which Cleo reconfigured a distraught household. And her generous and . . . admirably unsentimental account of Cleo's long life is a salutary reminder of the gratitude we humans owe to our companion animals. (Daily Mail)
From the publisher of Marley & Me and Dewey, this is the uplifting and affecting tale of Cleo the kitten, who helps heal a family after a terrible tragedy.See all Product description

The pleasure of the book starts with the cover and the gorgeous photo of "Cleo" the subject of the story. Inside before the strory commences there are some nice photos of the family.
Author, Helen Brown, writes this true account of life with "Cleo" in a very interesting and beautiful way. The reader is taken through the experiences of the family from life just before "Cleo" through to getting her, a family tragedy, marital problems, working and living in another country, additions to the family, growing up, a new relationship and all the ups and downs that any ordinary family experience. All of which include "Cleo" - this little bundle of soft fur that loves and gives strength to her humans and who will always leave her mark.
It is a gorgeous book and one that will please even those who are not strictly 'cat people' - just don't read it to the dog!! It is also a story of bravery - the bravery of the family to get through the downs.
Can thoroughly recommend and it would make a nice little gift for your cat loving friends too.
I could not put my kindle shut from the beginning to end !
I have a pet dog, so like this author, I really believe in the healing power of animals.
I can't wait for Helen Brown's next book!
It is a very sad and funny book and a cannot put me down book. A must read. I am recommending this to all my friends. I would have had to read this book as I too have the same name! It will take a pride place on my coffee table for many years to come.
