After weeks of waiting, i have finally received my copy of the book "Mr. Pusskins". I could not find it in any local bookstores, and it was on backorder at Amazon.
You can listen to a wonderful narration by NPR here. Catching this on my radio one day prompted me to put in an order for this amazing gem of a book.
I have now read it and i am deeply touched by this lovely little children's book. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll go hug your cat.
