Read full description of the books Compleat Cat:Cleveland Amory's three classic cat stories have been compiled for the first time into one edition, The Compleat Cat, an enchanting, moving, and humorous collection. A self-confessed curmudgeon and dog lover firmly established in his ways, Cleveland Amory never anticipated how one dirty and scrawny alley cat could affect his life so dramatically. Underneath the New York grime of this hungry stray hid a shimmering white coat and an endearing pair of green eyes; Amory was smitten, and Polar Bear moved right in.
In The Cat Who Came for Christmas, Amory crafts a charming narrative between cat and owner. Polar Bear converses through the swish of his tail, a look in his eye, and the tone of his meow. A humorous battle of wits ensues between the headstrong owner and the even more stubborn cat.
Amory's second book, The Cat and the Curmudgeon, draws us deeper still into the lives of Polar Bear and Amory, as cat and human face fame, romance, and everyday domestic crises. Now rather famous, Polar Bear is uneasy about his new celebrity status, interested only in eating his fan mail.
Amory's final Polar Bear book, The Best Cat Ever, takes a more serious twist: both cat and owner fall ill with arthritis and old-age complications. Amory takes Polar Bear on the cat's final trip--a jaunt back to his college days, where we learn more about Amory's fascinating past.
The Compleat Cat is an exceptional invitation into the very special world of Amory and Polar Bear.
