Apparently picking up a cat to give it a cuddle is a form of animal abuse......You learn something new every day. Suffice to say, unless you want to spend a few hours shouting "oh for GOODNESS sake!" at a book (and frightening your cat in the process) I suggest you give this one a swerve. This is a book about a woman living in a £2,000,000 house who is lucky enough to have a lifestyle that means she can rescue animals. Yet all she does is preach and whine. You see - I am getting annoyed all over again!
