'Twas the night before Christmas when a bedraggled white feline enters the heart--and home--of Cleveland Amory. To say it is a friendly takeover is an understatement. For the cat who came for Christmas is clearly of the Independent Type, and Cleveland Amory, curmudgeon or not, is, where animals are concerned, a pushover.Toe to toe they stand--Amory at six feet three, the cat at six inches--and eyeball to eyeball with each other on every issue: whether or not to come when called; to recognize one's name; to take a trip, a pill, a bath, or a walk on a leash; to be civil to New People; or even in an age when Thin Is In, why anyone in his right mind would want to be the Last Fat Cat. We will not spoil The Cat Who Came For Christmas by telling you who blinks first. Suffice it to say that in this hilarious battle, nine times out of ten, it is not the cat.… (mere)

On a snowy Christmas eve, Amory was contacted by a friend who had been trying to gain the trust of a stray cat who had been hanging about in a nearby alley. Ruth was sure that with the two of them working together they’d be able to capture the skittish feline. Against his better judgment, Amory went out in the snow and eventually they succeeded. But now where to take the cat? Thus this (eventually discovered to be white) cat came into Amory’s life, and they developed a close relationship (or as close as anyone can get to a cat). Polar Bear filled a hole in Amory’s life, and the animal advocate certainly ensured that Polar Bear not only survived, but thrived.

This book is a memoir of their first year together and the ways in which man and beast became a team.

I’m not much of an animal lover, but I found this reasonably interesting and entertaining. There were some quite humorous episodes (the first “bath”). Amory was a dedicated animal advocate and he uses this story to expound on many of his efforts, including stopping the slaughter of baby seals. I thought many of these sidelines detracted from the central story of a Cat and His Man.

Despite the title, there was nothing particularly “Christmassy” about the book. ( )

If you don't like cats and have no sense of humor, don't bother with this book. ( )

A book that most cat lovers will enjoy. Enjoyed it a lot. ( )

This a a great classic Cat Tale, featuring curmudgeon Cleveland Amory and his now famous rescue cat, Polar Bear.

It is wonderful funny reading with often enlightening episodes in Amory's amazing quest for worldwide rights for animals.

My only reason for not keeping it to read again next Christmas is the inclusion of horrifying examples of animal cruelty. ( )

This book was not what I thought it was, nor what, I suspect, the person who gave it to me thought it was. Still, it was a pleasant surprise.

It's a memoir of how the author came to have a particular cat in his life, & how they changed each other for the better.

If you've ever lived with a cat, all of these tales will ring true for you. There's humor, truth, & a lot of poignancy, particularly in light of the fact that both the human & the cat in this story are curmudgeons.

A great gift idea for the cat - or animal - lover in your life. ( )
