Kimba the cat and her sister, Hiro, were kittens and near death when their soon-to-be-owners found them on the street. The owners brought them to their house and nursed them back to health. Now fully grown, Kimba has a great life with her owners. She has everything she needs: food, toys, and a loving family. She thinks she has it all, but there is a nagging feeling that she should be free! When a weird cat from outer space named Regalusย contacts Kimba through the bathroom mirror, Kimba is given a mission – to spy on her owners! Kimba accepts and doesn’t think much of it. Soon Kimba learns her true identity and the plot of the cats she agreed to help. The cats from another planet plan to take over Earth via FACEBOOK!!!

This was a fun book. The story was simple and straightforward, but a good read. It also proves my greatest fear – cats are EVIL (yes, Cupcake, you were right!) – just kidding cats are cute (well, not mountain lions. Those are scary. *shiver*). ๐Ÿ™‚ The story is written very well and is appropriate for all ages. Ms. Dendler does a great job of getting the reader into the cat’s minds. The book has a great plot idea, but no twists or subplots so it was a bit predictable in places. Kimba was a good main character. She was a curious cat, but, fortunately, it didn’t kill her. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย There are some black and white photos, but only of Kimba, Hiro, and Daddy (the male owner) and another cat in the book. I would’ve liked to have seen Regalus the space cat though. I don’t think you have to be a cat lover to enjoy this story. It is a fun read that anyone can get into. ย Just remember – don’t let your cat get on Facebook – bad things happen…

  1. Now you see what I’m talking about, E. Cats! Yikes! And now I’ll be afraid of the bathroom mirror, too! GAH!

    Love and licks,

  2. Cat lovers will love this story. Sounds like a fun book. Love the cover and the story.

  3. I love the name Kimba for a cat. Now I will never trust Monkey (My cat) near the computer. I always thought she was up to something! Cute idea for a book.

  4. Our cat is the Queen of the Bathroom. She sometimes sleeps in the sink. I think she may be using the mirror quite often. I don’t think she’s discovered Facebook thought because we don’t have a computer in the bathroom. Maybe I should read this book and see if I can learn more. hmmmm.

  5. I am sure this will be a big hit with cat lovers everywhere. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sounds fun!

  6. I’ve long been suspicious of CATS! Ever since they danced on Broadway. That’s just not natural ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Erik, your humor is getting so much better. I love the curious cat not killed. And thanks for the shout out and the link. Now just get your people to visit and I’ll be a happy cat lover. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I had a cat that also liked to sit in the bathroom sink. Hm. I wonder if cats acting like they don’t recognize anything in the mirror is a decoy. I do agree, Facebook is not a place for your pet. Not even dogs. Great review. Love your writing.

  8. Not much of a cat person, but I can understand the appeal. This looks like a cute story, Erik. Thanks for sharing it.
