Item Details

A snowy January night. A cat that beat the odds. A man whose life would be forever changed.  This is the remarkable story of Toby Jug, the extraordinary cat who thought he was human. Paw Prints in the Moonlight is the truly special tale of one kind man and the cat that changed his life. Set in the rural splendor of Northumberland, England, this heartwarming and classic book will be cherished by people of all ages.  When Denis O'Connor rescues a three-week-old kitten from certain death during a snowstorm, little does he know how this tiny creature will change his life forever. Against all odds the kitten-whom he names Toby Jug-survives and turns out to be a wondrous Maine Coon Cat extraordinaire. Life with Toby is never dull, and Denis and Toby embark on a series of sometimes comical, sometimes poignant adventures that bring them ever closer together. From the massive invasion of bees at OwlCottage to the mysterious case of the disappearing tomatoes, Denis and Toby form an extraordinary bond, and the cat that no one thought would live through the night ends up altering the lives of everyone he meets.With spectacular watercolor illustrations depicting Toby's many hijinks, this timeless story about the power of pets will captivate readers of Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World, Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog, and Oogy: The Dog Only a Family Could Love.

Cat lovers will love this story about Toby Jug. I read it in one sitting -- just couldn't put it down. Starts out sadly, but tells the story of little Toby Jug who started out as a dying kitten, rescued by Denis O'Connor. Toby Jug lives to be a wonderful companion, and has a wonderful life, with O'Connor. My only complaint was the book was too short. Gentle story, well told about a remarkable cat. O'Connor wrote this story as a promise to Toby Jug that he would write his story someday. Wonderful read!

I absolutely hate it when a book makes me cry, but you'd have to be a bona fide psychopath not to feel strongly at moments while reading this. This cat is simply amazing, and the author a credit to his own race. Reflective, romantic, sometimes a bit mystical, and punctuated with plenty of adventure, peril, and even some humor and indignation, this is very well written and even more importantly written with sincerity that is blessedly bereft of ham-handedness.
