F is for Fester Cat

DSCF1011Hi everyone! Today for the A-Z Challenge, we have Fester Cat. Lucy reviewed his book back in January 2015. We loved it then and we still do. It is a very sweet story of how a cat adopts 2 men and they become a family. The actual title is The Story of Fester Cat by Paul Magrs.

Mom said I have to give you all a Brody update. He comes downstairs every night and meows at Dad. If Mom even wiggles a finger he goes flying back upstairs. He keeps trying to get near me and I hiss at him. So does Prancie and Snowball. We just want to set some limits.


I got to see my Grammie Monday and Wednesday. I love her so very, very much.

Mom says someone purchased the kitty puzzle box yesterday – anonymously thank you.

Sammy went on a Quest with The Cat Scouts. QUEST4SAMMYP Doesn’t he look cute all dressed up?  Thank you to Sammy K’s Mom for taking the photo.

I was supposed to start a giveaway, but Mom was too lazy busy to do the photo shoot so she said we could start it tomorrow for G ( Giveaway). She will still have a G book to recommend too.


The Story of Fester Cat

Happy Friday everyone! Today is book day and Lucy and I are both recommending The Story of Fester Cat by Paul Magrs. I finally got the book from the library, but I liked it so much that I am going to order my own copy.


As you know, I don’t like books that make me cry. I will let you know I cried briefly, but the book is so uplifting that one cry was worth the rest of it. Fester is 12 years old when he decides to move in with Jeremy and Paul. Prior to that, he is basically on his own because the other families that he has lived with don’t really take good care of him. The 3 of them become a family and Fester tells us how it all came to be from his days on the street to life with Paul and Jeremy.

This book really hit home with me because it reminded me of our Spooky. He lived with 2 other families on our street until last year when he decided to move in with us. Spooky doesn’t try to get out, but if he did, I would stop him. Fester is allowed to go out, but always returns to his friends. This is a wonderful story about the power of love and friendship. It shows that our true families are those we choose to be with ( even if they are furry). I think every cat lover will enjoy it.
