This is a mini story about a family pet, one most people will recognize if they have furry friends of their own. I guess the content comes from many of our experiences and the front cover represents our first family cat as a kitten Bonny born in 1990.


Review it!


about the author

I was born in the East End of London in an area that was still covered by wartime debris, where we lived in an old house supported by three wooden buttresses. It was small and very cold in winter, heated by a coal fire and a paraffin stove where Mum worked endlessly shopping, cooking and cleaning everything manually.

What a change to the life we live now surrounded with technology at our fingertips, yet, personally I feel I have been privileged to have experienced that time, to have had a foot in each camp, be it modern or out dated, because even though push button A/B telephones and black and white TV doesn’t sound terribly interesting to the young, the community and determination of the people of those days continually pull so many of my emotional cords.

Michael found it hard growing up he was often in trouble and adults were always moaning at him.
Michael found a very unexpected helpmate to give him a new interest and help to keep Michael out of trouble. It was not only Michael who fell for the charms of this new visitor in their lives!!
Welcome puddles and the wonders of love and magic that many of us are privileged to find in a fury friend no matter whether we are young or old.
