Mitten the craziest of cats nearly drove the whole family nuts. How crazy? I had to extract him from two major appliances he would roll in dirt and change color he would actually hide from us outside he would play detective and turn into “stealth Mitten ” and if things weren’t going quite his way a chomp on a human finger was in order. It was not hard to figure why someone abandoned Mitten as a kitten he was just so nutty.
The kids said he needed someone just as nutty to care for him he needed me.
The chapter titles on Mitten’s web site www.citizenmitten.com give a flavor for how silly we all were. This book is mostly fun but it has its sadness. We have lost many pets some deaths being chronicled in the pages. But we owe our pets a death with dignity. There’s a chapter devoted to cancer in dogs which is so common today.
But it’s mostly good stuff fun stuff Mitten stuff. It features both cats and dogs.
