Smashwords (all eBook formats)
The tribe has been alone on the farm for many seasons, struggling to survive by their wits and will, unaided by the humans who abandoned them there years ago. Few members of the tribe outside of Tia, the eldest, and her fiercely loyal companion Bella, remember a time when two-legs--the cats' name for humans--lived in the farmhouse. Suddenly, the tribe's territory is invaded by a young two-legs couple, and the frightened cats ask themselves why have two-legs come to live there after so many seasons and what will happen to the tribe at the hands of these often cruel creatures?
What they're saying about it:
"This is a quick read and a joy, a real page turner. Very original, and most entertaining, it gives voice to those that are often the silent part of the tale, in this case, cats. I loved their tribe-chemistry and their diverse and charming personalities. Their clever, witty and banter-y sort of way of managing whatever happens strikes me as a really good take on cats, in general.
I can totally visualize their conversations going as McCarty Griffin portrays them.
The ‘two-legs’ were almost as endearing as the cats. Almost :D
Another proof of McCarty Griffin‘s talent to bring together humor and unique, original perspectives on things, this little darling of a read had me giggling pretty much all the way through.
(And, I just have to say, the cover is completely adorable!)
I highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys a short, light hearted, fun and entertaining read, and animal lovers such as myself will surely enjoy it thoroughly."--Smashwords Reviewer
