Cat Who Liked Potato Soup by Farish Terry
There was an old man, an ol' Texas boy, country raised, don't you know. He lived on Chatterpie Road, just him and an uppity old cat - a cat who'd rather eat the old man's potato soup than catch blackbirds. A cat who liked to go fishing with the old man and sit on the bow of his boat, her face into the wind, like she was an ornament on the bonnet of a car. A cat the old man loved dearly - but not so's you'd notice! Terry Farish and Barry Root have created a perfect pair of curmudgeons in this wry, unconventional love story.
