Author: Marilyn Edwards Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 13/11/2020

'A colourful series that celebrates the many ways animals enrich our relationships and our lives' Karin Slaughter Marilyn and husband Michael have known many happy years at Moon Cottage, with their cats Fannie, Titus and Pushkin. However, the time has come to make a dream come true, and for the family to move to beautiful Cumbria. However, as all cat-lovers will know, the feline companions in our lives do not always share our dreams, and getting Fannie, Titus and Pushkin on board with the change will be its very own challenge. . . Capturing the highs and the lows which come with living with cats, The Moon Cottage cat series is a testimony and a tribute to that unique and rewarding relationship which exists between humans and their feline companions in which cats, in their splendid complexity, remain among us, but not of us. **Fully illustrated throughout** Praise for the Moon Cottage cat series: 'My all-time favourite cat book' Jacqueline Wilson 'Cat lovers will adore this book . . . A tender story of love between the author and her cats' Celia Haddon 'All the many delights and a few of the heartaches of a life with cats are told with charm and wit.

'A colourful series that celebrates the many ways animals enrich our relationships and our lives' Karin Slaughter It's become obvious that the time has come to have Pushkin, the Russian Blue tom, and Titus, the ginger moggy queen, neutered. This was indeed the plan for Fannie, the tortoiseshell, but with her longed-for pregnancy well under way it must now be postponed. Fannie's due date for her kittens arrives and, in the time-honoured tradition of cats and the best laid plans, unexpected problems arise. Following this drama, the household finds itself in turmoil again with the arrival of a black Bengal kitten, called Gilly, who disrupts the peace of both cats and people resident in The Coach House. . . With a fine eye and ear for the world of natural history, Marilyn Edwards writes about rural living with charm and passion - but it is her observation of cats and their ways that make her books so utterly magical. **Fully illustrated throughout** Praise for the Moon Cottage books: 'My all-time favourite cat book' Jacqueline Wilson 'Cat lovers will adore this book . . . A tender story of love between the author and her cats' Celia Haddon 'All the many delights and a few of the heartaches of a life with cats are told with charm and wit.
