The sparse use of words, the feeling and truth, and the growth of a lonely man, are equally compelling in this scrap of a book. The kitten (as small as my hand) is a sweet component of this love story. I highly recommend it.

This is a sweet little story - a little sparse on character development, and no one except the cat even has a name. It follows the growth of a lonely man who acquires a kitten and learns to love. It is a quick read and leaves you feeling content and happy.

The Bachelor's Cat has all the earmarks of a classic love story a holiday gift that will rival The Christmas Box and The Notebook. When a somewhat introverted and self-serving bachelor artist finds a stray kitten at his doorstep, he decides to take her in to see if he can, indeed, sustain a lasting and loving relationship with another living creature. His on-again, off-again romance with a sexy but shallow girlfriend has left him emotionally cynical, and in no time the cat becomes the central focus of his life. Through her, the man rediscovers the meaning of loyalty and affection.
Out one evening at his neighborhood bar, the man strikes up conversation with a woman. She's not his usual type a little older (closer to his age, in fact) and on the heavy side but after several minutes they are caught up in a kind of exciting conversation he never experienced with his old girlfriend. As their relationship unfolds and blossoms in new and rewardi! ng ways, the man wavers between the sincerity and depth of the woman versus the frivolous and surface sexuality of his girlfriend, and it is his trusty cat who illuminates the right path. The Bachelor's Cat is charming, emotional and rife with life's important lessons

in short : a beautiful story that is beautifully written. to be more expansive : this is a gorgeous tale of love and self discovery, told with lush prose and a sense of humor. the bachelor is sensitive, lost, wildly romantic, and secretly detached. in caring for an orphaned cat he learns the meaning of love, loyalty and friendship. the woman he doesn't dare love is kind, caring, available and Not His Type : overweight, older, direct. the girlfriend he can't forget is gorgeous, cunning and self-absorbed. the confusion that pulls him in two different directions is poignant and altogether. this is a sweet novel about separating the glitz from the gold. here is an unforgettable line from the book to whet your appetite :

"...it was as if she had taken her skills at navigating the human soul and signed aboard a pirate ship with them."

This is a very easy, cute book to read. A young man, finds a cold hungry kitten on his doorstoop.
He takes her in, out of the cold, and starts to feed and care for her.
She teaches him about true love, not the love that his manipulating girlfriend sems to think is love.
He calls this exquisite cat, Frankie. Frankie, follows him everywhere and loves him unconditionally.
The man meets a woman, that is not really hit "type" but he starts to fall in love with her like the cat.
The cat trusts this woman absolutely. Then comes the day the man has to make a decision, stay with the woman, or go aftger the girlfriend that is alluring but fickle.
He goes to meet the girlfriend one day and Frankie follows him out of a door that is not fully shut, and gets hit by a car. The man is devestated and learns that love is always pursuing you and you must pursue it in turn.
Frankie survives and the man, having come to his senses, leaves the bitchy girlfriend and loves the woman, totally.
