Buckley's Story is a touching story, and a look at life between a cat and its master. The author first met Buckley, a tortoiseshell cat who walked with a gimp, while she was managing a Veterinary clinic. She soon fell in love with him. Originally the office greeter-cat, but when Ingrid left her job at the clinic to start her own business, Buckley came home to live with her, and her other tortoise shell cat Amber. After an initial orientation period, the two cats established their own ground rules and got a long well.
After just two years in his new home Buckley was diagnosed with heart disease. What follows in this memoir, is somewhat of a chronicle from initial diagnosis, treatment, and finally, the realization by Ingrid, of knowing when it was time to let Buckley go.
MY THOUGHTS - Buckley's Story is short but moving story about the joys of living and loving a cat. The story reaffirms how cats can influence and improve the quality of our lives, and how a special animal like Buckley can improve our outlook on life, as well as our overall happiness. This book is a must-read for cat lovers or those who may be grieving the loss of a pet. RECOMMENDED - 4.5/5 stars
