The sweetest short story I ever read

Firstly I have to say that I was sent this book for free, and I am leaving my review entirely voluntarily.
This was such a cute, heart-felt story, that if you are a cat, dog, or chimpanzee person, it will make you smile all the same. Please take time to listen all the way through to the end as there is also an authors note

The Mission to find the perfect Human

Story:
Cecilia's mother is expecting. The new litter will need the parent's full attention and they will take up so much room, no space is left for Cecilia.
It's time for our young cat to find her own home. Alone out on the streets she is scared, as her mother taught her, finding the right human to live with, is a difficult task for any cat. Humans are very tricky to train.
But, of course, it's possible, her siblings have shown it can be done and what other use is there for humans, than to be trained by a cat?
Will Cecilia find the perfect home?

Narration:
Fiona Thraille does a marvellous job. I truly enjoyed her heartfelt and cheerful narration.

Overall:
You don't need to be a cat lover to fall in love with Cecilia's Tale. It's a cute wee story about finding the right place to call home, where you are loved and cherished, and it's suitable for every age group.

Sweet little tale

Such a cute little late about how Cecilia set of to find her own human to “train”. I enjoyed the author’s personal note at the end with the tie to her own life.

This story was well written by Debbie Manber Kupfer and narrated by Fiona Thraille.

Super sweet kitten story

This is a super sweet short story about a kitten finding her way. It’s only 11 minutes long, but still worth a listen.

Cute story in memory of her cat

This is the fourth book I have read/listened to by this author and I would listen to another. This is a standalone story in memory of the authors own cat——-

This is the second book I have listened to by this narrator ( Fiona Thraille ) and I would listen to another. She has a very pleasant voice and has appropriate expression and narration speed for this child appropriate book. ——-

There are no explicit sex scenes, excessive violence, or swearing. ——-

Awww

I love cats, and have a soft spot for the homeless ones myself. I've been adopted by many furbabies in my life, and it will always be so.
