Leonard (my life as a cat)

Image of item
Book

First US edition.

While no cat can be called ordinary, Leonard is definitely no ordinary cat. In fact, he is an alien, sent on an earthly sabbatical and mistakenly given the body of a rather scruffy stray. Rescued by animal lover Olive, Leonard does his best to study the humans he hoped to join while contending with the indignities of hair balls, kitty litter, and a compulsion to shred the curtains. And as he collects experiences - shared cheese sandwiches, jokes, and confidences with kind, lonely Olive - Leonard finds himself unexpectedly caught up in one of the most human emotions of all: love. The trouble? He needs to get to his pickup spot two thousand miles away by the end of the month or he will be stuck on Earth as a cat forever. Full of funny observations and the warmth of friendship, this is a tender meditation on what it means to be human.
