Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1994

Stories culled from the works of veterinarian James Herriot show the way cats wander into people's lives, often having an unexpected impact. A few stories are humorous, such as the tale of Oscar's stops in town, while most are touching, sometimes bittersweet. Cat lovers will empathize with Herriot as he recalls how he struggled to bond with Ollie--a stray who took to his wife, Helen, but was wary of him--only to lose the cat shortly after making progress. Christopher Timothy, who played Herriot on the BBC, makes the stories his own, reading as if he were recalling his own experiences. At three hours, this short visit to the Yorkshire Dales will whet your appetite for more of Herriot's stories. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
