This the second book in a series about a bad, but adorable cat and his long suffering girlfriend Katie O’Brien. And not forgetting his also long-suffering ‘mother’, the author! From Reilly the cat’s viewpoint, the world is a fascinating place and he is the most fascinating part of it. Reilly is a chauvinist to the worst degree, and yet he still manages to ingratiate himself with many of the people he comes in contact with, providing he leaves his claws sheathed! However, Reilly is more than content to make enemies of most cats – except his girlfriend Katie O’Brien. Even then, she is not exempt from Reilly’s bullying ways, although she does have a few subtle methods of getting around Reilly! Despite Reilly’s chauvinism and general bad behaviour, he can also be an adorable cat, but most of the problems incurred along the way are all due to Reilly…
