Cat Speak

Cat Speak by Rich Grimes

The text and the colorful illustrations contained in Cat Speak accentuate and celebrate the wonderful world of our beloved felines. Simulating language based on what author Rich Grimes believes cats might be thinking, we come to know and appreciate the minds and hearts of our furry friends. As one might expect, there are (9) stories in all. The cats’ words are laced with humor, sarcasm, and at times, melancholy.

Cat (and dog) lovers will undoubtedly smile and laugh for they will personally relate to the events and behaviors described. Background information and author commentary provide foundation and foreshadowing for the tales spun by both domesticated and feral cats. The author blends beautifully fact and fiction and augments the stories with several uniquely creative elements including vignettes, Simba’s farewell, a cinema tribute, and cat testimonials. A fun, imaginative, entertaining read, Cat Speak will speak to you.
