Publisher's Summary

Brian Blessed has a lifelong love of animals and over the years has rescued cats and dogs, horses and ponies, and even a very ungrateful fighting cock. All were characters in their own right, such as Jessie, a dog left languishing for a year at the local RSPCA, who ruled the entire household with a rod of iron, when she wasn't out harassing the local vicar. Then there was Bodger, an abused terrier cross breed nursed back to health by Brian and his wife; and Peppone, a stray cat and notorious thief, was responsible for a crime epidemic in the Bagshot area. Most of all there was Misty, a soul mate and the first Jack Russell Brian met who didn't take an instant dislike to him.

Over the years Brian has encountered more exotic animals, too, from Kali the black panther who had free run of his kitchen and the gentle boa constrictor Bo Bo who went for walks with him in Richmond Park to the female gorillas who found him incredibly attractive. Written with all of Brian's ebullience, The Panther in My Kitchen is a laugh-out-loud, life-affirming audiobook about the joy animals bring and why we should care for them.

    "You know what you're getting"

    Assuming you've listened to (why on Earth would you 'read' it when you've got Brian narrating it?!) 'Absolute Pandemonium', you know what you're getting with Brian's new book.

    It's witty and funny of course and there's at least one 'GORDON'S ALIVE!!!' but although this tome jumps around a little more than his full autobiography and is more of a collection of roughly chronological animal-related stories, there are some real heart-touching tales too.

    I must say, as well as it being an animal-related memoir, it also uses the animals, both pets and wild ones, as a vehicle to explore more of Brian's richly colourful life, which is what I was hoping it would be too. A must for any Blessed fan and I'll be looking forward to the next one.

    "An excellent book!"

    Brian Blessed really involves the reader in the story. I laughed out loud, shed a tear and got angry!

    Thank you Brian and Hildegard!

    Story
    "Blessed by the Blessed again!"

    Brian does it again with another exceptional listen! Beautifully written and superbly read by the man himself.

    A little bit of an emotional rollercoaster ( for me anyway) a few tears here and there at the sad bits and more than a few more at the many, many funny bits. Glad I bought the audio version as the pages would be soaked through!!

    I love Brian, his blunt and to the point attitude with appropriately placed expletives highlights nothing more than his honesty and total love for almost anything with a pulse!
    A true hero and gentleman, if I were a dog, I'd wag my tail too!

    Thank You Brian xx
