Today I’m reviewing the book Avalon by Vanessa Morgan. You probably know Vanessa from her popular blog Traveling Cats which features pictures of cats taken during her travels around the world.
The book is based on the true love story of Vanessa and her beloved Turkish Van cat named Avalon. The Turkish Van cat is a nasty boy, and I mean nasty. He’s a possessive animal and he won’t let any animal or person come between him and his owner. Some of his traits remind me of my own cat, Mister Cat, who likes to terrify my nephews and scare away my guests. So, I can totally understand why she decided to keep him.
This book tells this heartwarming story of the immeasurable bond between a human and her cat. They shared a love many humans strive for but fall short. They accepted and loved each other for who they were with no other expectations.
What I also enjoyed about the book was the way the author blended and melded her life with her cat. Throughout the book we follow her personal life and her struggle to become a full time writer, while leaning on Avalon to pick up the pieces whenever tragedy ensued.
I also loved the funny memories of Avalon, like when he used to throw up on the Guinea Pig’s head or would terrify her boyfriend.
Overall this book is a great read for everyone who has ever deeply loved a pet!
The way the author blended and melded her life with her cat.
