Pounce Cat and Friends

March 19, 2012

Hi, everyone. The Song Of Pounce is a book I wrote about a cat and his friends. He is played in real life by Spackle, a black and white spotted shelter rescue who lives with me along with his brother Speckle and two other cats.

The Song Of Pounce is the story of a thrown away city cat who must learn to become a farm cat. It is written for 8 years old and up and I’ve happily discovered that many adult cat lovers are reading it to their children and grandchildren now as it holds the interest of adults very well.

Life for the Pounce cat is fearful, adventuresome, and wonderful as he learns to face cows, horses, cougars, cats and other creatures everyday. He discovers that making tough decisions in the face of trouble can cement true friendship and that singing about everything is a good way to get through the day intact and learn something too. Yes, he sings, much like small children do, and he makes up tunes and poem/songs for anything new he is trying to learn.

There is a reference section in the back of the book for youngsters to go online and research more information about any of the farm animals mentioned and also to encourage them to consider preparing their lives for careers in agriculture, animal care, etc. Various organizations are listed that provide wonderful education opportunities for young people.

The Song Of Pounce came out last fall from publisher Outskirts Press and is available for order from the publisher or any bookseller. The second story about Pounce and his adventures is written, being edited and will be out this year also.

There you have it, my first attempt to tell the world on such a site about my writing. Are there cat lovers out there or readers interested in heritage farm animals? The rare Randall cattle is featured in these books as well as Morgan horses, and rough collies. In the second book about Pounce, other wonderful farm animals are part of the story as well.

Hope to hear from you. Nita Berquist
