As a serious-minded student at The University of Chicago, Hartmut von Hentig became the unwilling caretaker of Poff-a gray, indistinctly striped alley cat-as part of a house sitting arrangement. I confess: I did not like cats before Poff was put into my care. And in the beginning Poff represented a duty, no more and no less. Poff proves to be more than a duty and a disruption; he is a teacher with an important lesson: that loving and caring for another is a way out of loneliness.

Cat lovers everywhere will wryly recognize their own lives in these whimsical vignettes. Worshipped since ancient times, cats are fickle, capricious and fiendishly clever. Oh, did we mention "vain," "elegant" and "charming"? Life has got to be on their terms or not at all. These willful creatures are masters of our homes, our wallets-and our hearts. By treating us with casual indifference our feline taskmasters keep us in our rightful place.

I have never forgiven this book for the false advertising of the title. In English class, talking animals sounded pretty offbeat and fun on their own.
English and Norwegian Bilingual Books. I have never forgiven this book for the false advertising of the title. I expected a story about animals enjoying life on a farm like the one I lived on. I first read this as a teenager, not really having heard of it before or knowing anything about the storyline. I was completely drawn in, it simply astounded me.
