Ever wondered what it would be like to be a cat? Author Louise Hudson did, and wrote a novel about it.
Set in the grounds of Shugborough and the surrounding villages, I Am A Cat is the story of a girl who is re-born as a kitten after a charity bungee jump goes wrong, but keeps her human mind.
After living in various places and sleeping rough, she joins a narrow boat crew and falls in love.
Author Louise said the book explains why some of our pets understand every word we say, and how they try to communicate with us.
Featured in the current issue of Your Cat magazine, I Am A Cat has won praise from best-selling thriller writer Terence Strong, who described it as ‘slightly spooky, brilliantly observed, and a very clever insight into the life of a cat. If you love cats and their relationships with humans, you won’t be disappointed here.”
Louise Hudson, from Hopton, has lived in Staffordshire for several years.
She will be at Lichfield’s Oxfam store on July 10, signing copies of the book, then at the Waterstone’s Guildhall branch on July 11.
