Product description


"Another charming and irresistible book from a master cat lover." ―Feathered Quill Book Reviews

"Cox’s prose about his furry family are what makes his memoir more endearing than a mere repackaging of his cats’ best Twitter material, even to a dog person like me." ―Maris Kreizman, the Los Angeles Times

"Poignant, funny, and thoughtful, reading Cox is like receiving a letter from your best overseas friend, just the right blend of amusing anecdote and personal update. His latest, Close Encounters Of The Furred Kind, is just as indelibly charming as the rest of his output, a mix between All Creatures Great And Small and David Sedaris." ―The A.V. Club

"This delightful book will make you smile and often laugh out loud, and you’ll probably recognize yourself and some of the cats who have shared your life in the pages." ―The Conscious Cat

“Made me laugh out loud.” ―David Sedaris

“Certain to have you in stitches.” ―The Daily Mail

“Tom Cox loves cats and he's not afraid to show it.” ―Vicky Halls, author of Cat Confidential

“Tom Cox is a very funny cat addict. I laughed out loud.” ―Celia Haddon author of Cats Behaving Badly
