When We Were Kittens

The continuing adventures of Dougal the Giant Kitten and his foster-sister Shadow.

The gentleman cat’s account of his wonderful and challenging life follows his bestselling first book, Dougal’s Diary.

Dougal and Shadow are still living with Man, Woman and Belladonna – the Senior Cat and boss of the house – but the pair are now, mostly, all grown up.

And life is seldom boring as Dougal tackles new escapades and things to figure out; like how his sister has been taking Assertiveness Training from Belladonna.

The young cats make a truce with the wattle-birds and Crows! in their garden; but find the dogs in the street are noisy and stupid.

As Dougal negotiates his position in the adult world, emotional reassurance, revelations and even help comes from a surprising source. But then – woe! – Man goes away for a Long Time and the poor boy is just sad and lonely.

Will Man come home? Does Shadow still love him, even though she still eats his food? And even if Man does come home again, will they all still go for walks at night?

What Dougal's Readers think ...

WOW - another episode in Dougal's Life.  Can't wait!

Mum said we should say what we though about the books. They are lovely books and Dougal is a very nice cat, although it is a bit sad that the girl cats are mostly snooty or naughty. Our girl cat, Esmeralda Pussy Princess (Anna named her it's a bit wet) isn't naughty and she is only snooty when you wake her up. She is pretty brave and very good at chasing rats, although she is a bit scared of our sheep which Dad thinks is probably not a bad thing. The books really made us understand that our cat is thinking about us, just like we think about her all the time.

... an enjoyable read and allows us to spend more time with our feline friends, and my children were keen to hear a little more each night and enjoyed the ‘interviews’ with the cats, at the end of the book.
