Alice's Diary

The Memoirs of a Cat

Alice's Diary has, for 25 years, been Britain's bestselling hardback cat book. It is now available, for the first time, as an e-book. And it is, therefore, available for the first time for readers outside the UK. The book tells the story of a year in the life of a tortoiseshell cat called Alice who shares her life with Thomasina, a mackerel tabby, and two ‘Uprights'. Alice records the year's events and disasters with great humour and insight and at long last gives a glimpse of what it is really like to be a cat. Alice's Diary is delightfully illustrated throughout by the author and is a must for animal and cat lovers everywhere. Alice was helped to write this book by international bestselling author Vernon Coleman. (And yes, Alice really did exist.)

A must for cat lovers.
