Memoirs of a Feral Cat
Memoirs of a Feral Cat
Soft, sweet, and precious. That’s how I entered this world… and that’s how we, the readers are introduced to the world of Molly, an independent feral feline. All she wants is to explore the world around her, but the world has other ideas. She clashes with two-leggers, falls under the spell of catnip, and refuses to lick the paws of a domesticated feline who wants to be the top cat of the cathood. In between rat fights she befriends Old Tom who introduces her to a mystic, a gatekeeper of one of the precious sites of Bastet, protectorate of all things feline. Is our molly destined to be a gatekeeper? Can she survive her tough, feral world including her own curiosity? I promise, it’ll be quite a tail.
If you’re looking for sure-footed adventure and a splendid, fast moving tail, this molly’s for you. … There’s something for everyone in this well crafted yarn that lures us into a an entrancing world of steadfast mollies, feckless toms, motherhood, catfights, love, loyalty, betrayal and transcendence. …
The author does such a wonderful job inserting the reader into the mind of a cat. Some of the characters could have given Charles Dickens a run for his money. Add a little mysticism–so well done it’s icing on the cake. Long story short: I loved it!
This collection of charming stories will appeal to cat lovers and even dedicated dog people like me! Jill White paints beautiful pictures with her poetic prose and will draw you into Molly’s tale (or is it tail?). A must-read for a rainy day!
I loved this book. I enjoyed following these brave felines on their adventures. The author was able to infuse each character with such vivid personalities. I am left hoping for a sequel. I was not ready to say goodbye.

Ms. White writes with emotion and intense description from the cat’s viewpoint. I loved the interactions between the cats with their various personalities. Perfect story for any cat lover. More, more!
