Kit Kat and Lucy by Lonnie Hull DuPont is one of the most enjoyable kitty books I've gotten to read in a while It is hard to find well-written, entertaining books about animals, period. Books that aren't tear-jerkers, that are well-written and sort of capture the reader. I read Kit Kat and Lucy from beginning to end in one night.
Lonnie Hull DuPont is a good writer. Her story of how she, an insecure city girl with panic-anxiety and some other hangups, finds herself in an old farm house in VERY rural Michigan. When she and her husband leave their vibrant life in San Francisco to live in an old house, out in the middle of rural Michigan, Lonnie thinks she has "fallen off the earth".
This book is the story of how Kit Kat and Lucy quite literally find her and give her entire life a new meaning. Just reading about how Kit Kat managed to make it to Lonnie's home is a riveting tale. And just wait until Lucy shows up! Read this book and find yourself laughing over the antics of these two girls. Soon Lonnie is no longer lonely. She and her husband work on the old farmhouse, all the while being entertained by the two kitties who "chose" them. Life in rural Michigan wouldn't be my choice of location, but with the help of ones kitties, one can learn to not only be happy, but also content. And every day with these two girls offers something new!
A story of how two stray cats make their way into the hearts of their humans (all done on "little cat feet") is heartwarming, humorous, entertaining and well-written and will not disappoint. I got mine used on Amazon, but it should be available in the library, used books stores and possibly on Kindle. Happy reading!
LFFAC adventures, stories and maybe even a cute cat video every now & then.
