The Christmas Cat, by Melody Carlson, is the perfect book for any cat lover during the holiday season. Garrison Brown recently returned from missionary work in Uganda, but he did not take much time out of his busy schedule to visit his grandmother who raised him. When Garrison Brown’s grandmother passes away near the holidays, he has to return to her home and pack up her belongings. With those items are also six cats that need to be relocated to new homes. Although you would think this would be a relatively easy task, his grandmother left very specific instructions which made their placement a little difficult. Also, he was not going to be able to inherit his grandmother’s home until the cats find good homes.
Throughout the book, Garrison meets many interesting characters as he tries to place his grandmother’s cats. While the main focus of this book was not romance, I did enjoy the little bit of romance that was added. It made the book more than just a story about cats. Even though I don’t particularly like cats, I really did enjoy this book. I think many different people will enjoy reading The Christmas Cat during this holiday season.
