Heartbreaking story of a mother's love for her children. How does she get inside these characters and imbue them with their very own species-specific, but very humanly recognizable emotions? I am blown away by this story. It does not so much anthropomorphize Magtwilla as get at her essence as a cat.

A good cat-perspective story, effectively putting me in the shoes of a domesticated cat. What I found surprising was how emotion-provoking it was. Definitely good at hooking the reader.
