The Life and Adventures of Jonathan Cat
By Betty L. Killebrew
Jonathan Cat, a barn cat born during the Depression era, leaves his farm home early in life and begins to travel around the country, enjoying a variety of adventures and living with various human friends along the way.
Told by Jonathan himself, this heart-warming tale chronicles Jonathan’s adventures with each of his best friends—Peggy, a little farm girl who has to be reminded to give him water; Boxcar Joe, a hobo who rides the rails; Boozer, a reformed alcoholic; Stripes, another cat with whom he develops a kinship; and Sharon the great human love of his life.
Seen through a cat’s eyes, the actions of the human characters in the book range from humorous to heroic. From living with his friends, Jonathan learns important lessons about life and love.
The author was inspired by several cats she has “owned” and by the classic animal stories about Black Beauty and Lassie. Her writing is clear and straight forward, making for easy reading; but this book is not primarily for children. It has appeal for readers over a broad spectrum. It will not only engross children, it will also fascinate cat owners and offer several hours of enjoyment to anyone who simply enjoys a good story.
Early readers have said that they laughed out loud in some places and cried at the end. If you read this book, please post your review both at Amazon and in the comment section for this posting.
