This was a somewhat charming, light read about a curmudgeon who adopts a kitten from the December snows. Cat lovers will enjoy this, others might look elsewhere.

Talk about warm fuzzes. Polar bear reminded me so of our dear white angora cat Monet. We were blessed to enjoy her antics for over 19 yrs. If you are a cat lover or enjoy stories about cats "The Cat Who Came to for Christmas" should be on your must read list.

I was a little disappointed in this book actually. I was looking for a book with lots of his cat experiences and stories about his cat. There were a few of those, but you have to wade through alot of cat history and never ending history on naming cats to find them.

I think that the problem for many people is that this is one of the first cat-person novel written in this way, and a lot of us got burned out by the cutesy copies that have gone on ad nauseum. But as the seminal one, it wasn't so bad.

From the book cover: "It was, of all things, a white Christmas Eve, when Cleveland Amory, self-confessed curmudgeon and confirmed dog-owner, found himself standing in a deserted alley trying to rescue a dirty, injured, starving, decidedly unfriendly cat...With glimpses of Amory's cat's memorable meetings with notables such as George C. Scott and Cary Grant, and fascinating tidbits about the history of cats, this is an irresistible book for cat-lovers and non-cat-lovers alike."

"You will smile all year... Cleveland Amory has writen a book of delights about a Manhattan 'odd couple'-- a bachelor writer who was set in his ways and a stray cat with a domestic policy of his own."

"Told by a storyteller of masterful charm...The perfect Christmas book at any cat person's house. Or at the house of anyone you think should be."
