The Cats on Hutton Roof
by Marilyn Edwards
Aims to study the issues raised by cohabiting with felines. This book tackles the problem of realising a dream only to find that the dream is not necessarily the perfection it was imagined to be. It discusses feline bereavement, reproduction, jealousy, passion, love, laughter, tenderness, wildlife, village life in Cumbria and, why cats matter.
The author is happily ensconced within the safe haven of Moon Cottage with her husband, his son and their three cats Fannie, Titus and Pushkin. But things happen to enable a dream to come true for Marilyn and her husband, Michael. A move to the country is on the horizon. However, the stuff that dreams are made of does not always suit the cats in one's life because, as all cat-lovers will recognise, cats hate change. As in the earlier books, the author combines humour, a little sadness and her own particular brand of enthusiasm while studying the issues raised by cohabiting with felines. In this book too, she tackles the problem of realising a dream only to find that the dream is not necessarily the perfection it was imagined to be. The subjects discussed include feline bereavement, reproduction, jealousy, passion, love, laughter, tenderness, wildlife in general, village life in Cumbria in particular and above all why cats matter.

In some ways this book stands comparison with Tarka the Otter. The tone of voice and the pace are different, but the observation and the empathy are of similar quality. -- Geoffrey Moorhouse
