After the first book about Dewey, Dewey's mom, Vicki Myron started to hear from all over abuot some other Amazing Cats!

In this book she narrates just nine of the incredible stories she was told and also includes some more details about Dewey that didn't make the first book. Vicki took time to interview everyone involved with these cats to find out just how special these cats were and that like Dewey had a strong perseverance and capacity for love. The stories range from a cat found drowning on Christmas Eve to a Ninja kitty and more.


This is an enjoyable book especially for cat enthusiasts who understand that cats are the bosses and mere humans are their pets.

Each of these stories will touch your hearts or tickle your funny bone, sometimes both.

Each chapter is an entirely new story with Dewey's compassion interwoven seamlessly throughout. The stories are truly inspirational and remarkably different. Any pet lover knows the unconditional love affair between a pet and their human and included in this book of just 9 stories when there could have been hundreds. I don't think this will be the last we will here from these authors or Dewey.

Oh, and if you think you are not a cat lover, stop by any humane society and cuddle with one or two, it could change your life.

Dewey's Nine Lives is not a sequel about the library cat of Spencer, Iowa. This volume contains nine stories which Vicki Myron (along with Brit Witter) found amidst the fans reaching out after Dewey. Although Dewey Readmore Books only prominently appears in one story, sprinkles of 'Dewey Magic' are found in these charming short stories which are a testament to the power and unconditional love which can exist between humans and felines.
