The Cat That God Sent

About The Book:  Meet Petey, your not-so-average cat-on a mission from God  Disillusioned young pastor, Jake Wilkerson, has just arrived at his new assignment in the small rural church of Coudersport, Pennsylvania. Also new on the scene is Petey, a cat of unknown origins and breed-but of great perception.  As Jake sets about doing the business of ministry, Petey's continued interference brings chaos to the community of curiously off and eccentric people-residents like the faith-avoiding veterinarian Sally Grainger and Tassy, a young runaway with a secret. An expert at hiding his fears, Jake wonders if all this-and the cat to boot-is more than he can handle. What is Petey's real "mission"? Perhaps something larger than Jake---or even Petey---can possibly know.  Want to purchase a copy then click on this link.

About The Author:  Jim Kraus grew up in Western Pennsylvania and has spent the last twenty years as a vice president of a major Christian publishing house. He has written more than twenty books and novels, including the best-selling The Dog That Talked to God. He and his family live outside of Chicago with a sweet miniature Schnauzer and an ill-tempered Siberian cat named (of course) Petey.

My Thoughts About The Book:  This novel had me right from the beginning...I have always believed that cats could communicate and it was obvious in the meow sounds, looks, and expressions of Petey.  They truly are an independent breed, with a great deal of personality.  I am  a dog person who lives with a family of cat people. I love the fact that this book was written in third person. This story is so much deeper than I thought it was when I first began reading. It is an amazing story, with Petey bringing out truths. As the wife of someone who was called into the ministry later in life I find that when I read books like this one , I am pushed to look at my own thoughts, intentions and precepts of life, and use the stories to grow.  This is one of those stories.  I took away a great deal of thoughts from this book.
