Showing of 7 next show all Oh I loved this so much!! I'm owned by five cats so obviously, cats are incredibly important to me and I loved this story about a young cat making her way in the world and finding how to tell her own story.
The writing is wonderful, the characters are well-drawn, and the cat herself is a precious and brave character. You can't help but root for her to find her own home and her own voice. Definitely recommend, especially to cat lovers!
ElleGato Sep 27, This proved to be a surprisingly charming short story. The artwork was positively gorgeous, and the writing quite flowery. It bordered on being a bit too poetic, but reeled itself in before it became overdone.
Altogether a touching tale.

L Mar 31, Well, in the space of a few hours I just read two stories by the same author. If I'd read the Ponies one first I'd never have tried anything else by this author and gone out of my way to ignore everything they've ever done in their writing career. Instead I read the cat one first, this one here.
I'm somewhat unable to spend money at the moment for various reasons. This short story was so interesting and good I almost just blindly bought some ebook novel or short story collection to continue reading this author.
I suppose I should be thankful that other story, Ponies, was on Tor. This story follows the point of view of a kitty, something of a coming of age story for cats. The kitty lived in a great walled garden like setting with many relatives and a ruined building.
Everything was fun and games. Then a fire rages through Tokyo. Confused and hurting the kitty begins a journey to try to find where a relatively distant relative came from. And so heads "North". She, the kitty, travels along a particular road that goes north, sometimes needing to dodge humans who have no idea what a cat is and think she is a demon, while sometimes finding friendly humans.
I wouldn't have written this much if not for reading Ponies after reading this story, and while that got me to write something, it is also distracting me from going any deeper in a review of this story. Ok, I will add this: Despite everything I've said, reading a five star story, then a one star story by the same author within a short period of time, the five star story is just that good that I'll probably attempt something else by this author.
Oh, and I suppose I should note that there wasn't anything particularly bad with the writing or anything on that level with the Ponies story.
I just disliked the story.Lyrics to "I'm Gonna Be ( Miles)" song by The Proclaimers: When I wake up, well, Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles To fall down at your door When I'm working, yes, I know I'm gonna be I'm gonna be the man who's working hard for you And when the money comes in for the work I do.
