This is more a series of short stories/essays about more than one cat. The narrator and his wife are not cat people and slowly become so.
It is not particularly gripping, but it is a good cat story. So if you like cats, it is worth reading. Just be warned - pet death.
I also read Lucky Cat #1 for the 13 square. That is a very short story, 13 pages, about a stolen black cat. No pet death in that one. It was sweet.
