I was delighted to read The Red Claw

Xander is a special agent working for an organization known as Catomondo. As a Purrtector, he is called to action whenever the need arises, and his exploits are legendary. Inhibited only by the restraints of his humans and their boat, he is only able to travel where they go. That makes his job more difficult when he's summoned to investigate a catnapping in Jamaica. He has to put all his feline skills to the test to reach his destination and get to the bottom of Esmeralda's disappearance.

I loved the addition of cat lingo in the story (purrtectors, whispurring, purrsonal, etc). The author has done a fantastic job of portraying the feline mindset as well as describing his feline quirks and movements. His disdain for dogs brought amusement to the story, and his sidekick Sharkey was a great addition. Both characters have led interesting lives, and they are presented in a well-rounded fashion.

It was loads of fun to read the emails between the cats. If you've ever wondered what cats might message to each other, this is certainly the book for you! My favorite scene had to be the "fish cleaning". It had me grinning ear to ear. An excellent story, and highly recommended for anyone who would like to experience the world through the eyes of a cat.

My mommy read me this purrfect story. I may only be a six month old kitten but I know a good book when I hear one. The way level of purrfection Jeanne makes me wonder if Jeanne is really a human or if she is a kitty herself. Everyone, humans and furbabies alike must read!!!!

OMG. This book was PUUURRFECT. I Puraise the author for being like minded with a cat. The wording through out tickled me and the ending tossed me through a "tail spin". I have not read a cat book this interesting since the Warrior series. I hope there are many many more from this series. I already went and follwed the author or Amazon so I don't miss any. Now I am off to look at adopting a simease cat. LOL

A purrfect read for animal lovers, particularly those more inclined towards our feline friends. A great book for all ages. My cat Willis has asked me to write, that this book is like a mouse, one you just want to sink your teeth into and never let go.

It was great reading this lovely cat-based story. You can almost see Xander getting wet, trying to get all the slobber off his fur, climbing the various trees, jumping into that truck filled with stinking fish, etc. It is as if the author, obviously being a tremendous cat-lover, has been able to physically put herself into his coat. What started off as a detective changed to something I did not expect! Loved that twist to the story, which also has several messages for the reader to ponder over afterwards. The book cover is absolutely beautiful and shows the very strong Siamese, which Xander is!

I am so happy I got to read this arc with my 9 and 11 year old as well as fur babies (though Miss Livie Lou Who said there where to many cats and not enough dogs...what can I say chihuahua's) The rest of us enjoyed reading about Xander's travel to save Esmerelda and since reading the kids have been asking to know more about Jamaica. They want to sail their one day like Xander did. They are really looking forward to reading book number two of the series and have been following the authors blog for sneak peaks...
Thank you, Jeanne, for writing a family friendly story for thous of us in mixed human and furry families. There are few books both kids agree on and this one made the top of their lists. In fact my oldest is doing her book report on it.
