Book Review: My Best Little Buddy

Hi everyone,

This time around we got to review a fantastic cat book by Tom Templeman.

The book in question? My Best Little Buddy 17 years of love & friendship with Tiger. And as you can see from the featured photo this goes perfectly hand in hand with today’s Tummy Rub Tuesday! 😀

From start to finish this book drew me into the world of Tiger, his sister Sundae and not to forget their human family. 🙂

From the author himself about the book:

My Best Little Buddy  is a heartwarming story of 17 years of love & friendship with a little grey tabby cat named Tiger, who we found as a kitten abandoned in a park and quickly became my best little buddy. During those 17 years he was my best pal, playmate, protector, comic relief, comforter, and laptime snuggler. Tiger was full of goofy personality; he was everything I could ever ask for in a pet. To many of my friends and family, including me, Tiger often appeared to be more of a little person disguised in grey striped pajamas than a cat, who viewed life like a perennial five year old! This book is written from the heart, as I share special stories of Tiger over the years that brought laughter, love, tears, joy, comfort, and many, many great memories.

Do we agree with his statement? Yes, YES AND YEEEEEEESS. You can really tell that the author has put his whole heart into writing this book. Each story highlights the relationship of Tiger with the rest of their family. I think my own favorite little story was when little Tiger decided to become protector for Tom – but you shall hear no spoilers from us as to what lead to this. 😉

We were astonished to read that he had started writing the book less than 3 weeks after Tiger passed away, if it had been one of ours I am not sure if we would have had the strength to start writing a book at that point!

So if you are looking for a new book to read that includes heart warming stories, the things life throws into your way and cats full of mischief accompanied by cute photos when look no further! 🙂

      :D. That makes two of us!!! It’s such an amazing book. I started reading it on a drive to my partners family and much to his annoyance had no time to keep him entertained driving ;). I was even like can we extent the drive… I need to finish reading this first ^^

    How sweet! I haven’t come across any other books like this and would love to read it. After my kitten-girl Jane passed away, I couldn’t do much else but cry for quite a while, so it is really inspiring that Tiger’s human, Tom, channeled his grief in such a positive way 🙂

    This does sound like a nice book. I’m sure there are many sweet and bittersweet stories. My own cat is 17 right now as well. She’s sitting on my lap as I type this, of course. Thanks for sharing your review with us!
