Learning the profound arts of purring, mousing, and, above all, washing. I was sent scurrying to a re-read of this following a chance post by a fellow blogger about fictional books with a cat-focus Interesting Literature. Although the protagonist is a little boy, this is by no means childishly written, nor does it just offer whimsicality about cats.

Hers was the call of the loneliness of the rejected, the outcast of the granite heart of the unheeding city. Peter Brown is a lonely rather privileged little boy — he has a Nanny and two successful, socialite parents who are too busy to give him much love and affection. Seeing a little kitten across a busy main road, Peter follows his tender instincts and runs, without doing his Green Cross, across the road. And is knocked down. Unexpectedly he finds he has become a white cat I know, I know, but stick with it, this is far from merely twee fantasy.

A typically charismatic and flirtatious Siamese also figures,, and is the source of some trouble and strife for our hero……. Gallico, a life long animal, and particularly cat-animal lover, absolutely takes the reader inside cat-dom.

Peter retains human consciousness, and has no idea how to circumnavigate his new world. Starving, chased away, stepped on by unaware people because he lacks the cat sense to get out of the way, Peter is almost killed by a ferocious territorial feral top cat.

Fortunately, he gets rescued by the eponymous Jennie, a sweet-faced, sweet-natured, intelligent and rather plain fellow stray cat. Jennie is a cat who now hates people, following her abandonment by the loving family who were everything to her.

And the reader too! Peter must learn the intricacies of being able to wash himself, the difference between the game of catching your breakfast mouse and killing a deadly rat, cat courtesy, the rules of cat conflict, how to open dustbins — and much more.

Although Peter comes to think as cat, he also retains his little boy ability to understand human language, and, rather importantly, to read. He has many exciting adventures with Jennie — including travelling, as the two stowaway and work passage on a Glasgow steamer. They have several instances of narrow escapes from various dangers which might befall a cat, and, as in all good books, grow, develop and change through their relationship with each other and external events. Peter and Jennie learn from each other and teach each other how to be more — soulful, whatever the shape of the body that encloses them.

Gallico leavens sadness with much fun and good humour, and all his characters, feline and human are quirky, recognisable and sharply delineated. This is a gorgeous book for a tender-hearted child, and a tender-hearted adult too. And with even more appeal if some of your tenderness is cat shaped. Happily now re-issued as a Modern Classic, it was originally published in December 10, at am.

Siamese cats! Love them! Lady Fancifull said:. December 10, at pm. What a fabulously descriptive and accurate description of a Siamese. There is a local one, a complete tart, who has a home but would dearly like to move in here — and probably many other places — but the native residents would sulk massively. He periodically comes to find me outside and blazes those sapphire eyes at me hypnotically. This sounds wonderful!

You must have a sneaky read before passing it to smaller hands. I will probably have to download Thomasina in memory of my earlier smaller hands. And, yes the gif. I found and used it once before for an earlier post on something or other, but this is the one it is perfectly designed for.
