Close Encounters of the Furred Kind is the follow-up to the Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller The Good, The Bad, and the Furry . Like The Good, The Bad, and the Furry, it tells the story of Tom Cox's life with his charismatic cats--The Bear, Shipley, Ralph, and recent recruit Roscoe.

Close Encounters of the Furred Kind begins with a long, emotional goodbye to Norfolk, and continues with another amazing new lease on life for The Bear, the Benjamin Button of the cat world, among the bluebells and verdant hedgerows of Devon. Readers who became attached to The Bear's magical, owlish persona during his previous adventures will become more so here as he proves, once again, that he's a cat with endless secrets and significantly more than nine lives.

Thoroughly enjoyable read if you are a cat lover and especially if you are also an Anglophile. Tom and his four cats have many adventures moving households around England. If any of you cat lovers have moved with your cat you know only too well what all this entails. lol. I encourage you to read this book after a day of bad news on the telly and relax and laugh out loud.
