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.
