The Guest Cat

Descriptively and poetically written. I thought the novel beautifully captures the essence of the relationship between Chibi and her humans, and humans and cats in general.

“Little by little, through the crack in the partially opened window, her tendency to visit subtly developed; her appearances were repeated until, as if a silken opening in a fabric had been continuously moistened and stretched, Chibi had entered our lives.”

And as some of us would know, once a cat has entered your life, things aren’t ever the same 🙂
