Publisher Description

Following on from Tom's life with six cats in UNDER THE PAW, he now picks up the story in TALK TO THE TAIL, updating readers on what has happened with his feline friends as well as looking back for more confessions about his animal-loving past.

Readers of Tom's previous book will be delighted to read what has happened to his six eccentric cats. Why does Janet keep bringing 1980s sweet wrappers into the house? Will 24-hour surveillance of The Bear, using a state-of-the-art cat GPS system, finally solve the mystery of his wanderlust? Tom also writes about his bumbling forays into the remainder of the animal kingdom. He attempts to overcome his crippling fear of horses with disastrous results, chase ostriches in Kenya, put his hand into a tiger's mouth for 0.9 seconds and he meets his 'alter-doggo' -- the spaniel Tom regularly walks who likes to roll around in dead animals. Where will it all end? Will he give in to temptation and get a dog, a goat or even more cats? With this soppy creature-obsessive, anything is possible.

A fantastic read!

As a middle aged, heterosexual male living a settled life on the south coast I often wondered whether I was unique in my fascination and deep attachment to cats. Certainly, I was surely the only male I knew who would cross the road to speak to a cat and I had even been known to creep up to strangers houses and ring the front door bell to aid entry for cats which had been ignored... The level of fussing I lavished upon my own cat, and the hard stares I would furnish upon friends who I felt were being negligent in their attention to cats, had to be unique. How fantastic it was to find I was not alone! Tom Cox's book made me laugh out loud as I recognised so many of my own experiences reflected in Toms book. If you love these funny little furry people you will love Toms book. If you are male, it may just change your life...
