They say every cat has nine lives, and Jim the dysfunctional cat is no exception. Steven Appleby's new book tells the story of one very challenged cat and of the trials and tribulations of living with him. Based on many years spent observing and despairing at the real Jim, the book concentrates on each of Jim's lives in nine gruesome chapters. It also explores the unfathomable nature of cats in general and the trauma of sharing your life with them. Cat lovers will be charmed. Cat haters will have all their suspicions confirmed. WARNING! Jim is not a cat for the squeamish or those of a weak constitution.
