Urban Tigers: Tales of a Cat Vet Reviews
Heart warming stories of the cat patients in a cat only hospital as related by Dr. Emily McBride in her first year of practice. The cats have unique personalities and so do their owners.
Lots of fun and funny. A novel about a woman vet who returns to her native Nova Scotia to work in a local veterinarian practice. Way better than I thought it would be!
You know I'm a softie for books about animals, and this novel (that reads like a memoir) was a great read. I read most of it with Annabelle on my lap and Mozart curled by my side. (They're my two cats.) it's a collection of stories based on the author's experience in working alongside her husband, a veterinarian, in one of Canada's few feline-only practices. I laughed, I cried, I related with the owners who worried about their pets and would do anything for them. The author is a gifted writer, with an enviable talent at turning a descriptive phrase. In addition to the book I bought for myself, I also bought two copies as Christmas gifts for friends. Ms. Chisholm is at work on Urban Tigers Two, and I eagerly anticipate its release in the fall. Her website, www.kathychisholm.ca, is also worthy of some of your time.
I just loved this book, funny, heartwarming and eye opening, the author uses turns of phrase that leave me chuckling and full of admiration. A vets working life must indeed be full of challenges. A light and very enjoyable read. On to book two!
Like James Herriot books, but set in Halifax. Good and very amusing.
Delightful, Well WrittenThe entertaining clever writer describes a cat only veterinary practice in Nova Scotia. The book really is a pleasure to read
This was a good book, reminded me of the James Herriott series.
A delightful book for cat lovers. Set in Halifax.
