The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'What The Cat Knows':

Reviewer Joan Lewis wrote:
What the Cat Knows By Brent R. Schofield Review by Joan Moore Lewis, author of southern fiction Perfect Gift for first-time cat owner Have you ever noticed the strange actions of a cat? I have noticed how friends� cats would entertain me for a while by running, jumping, attacking the drapes, and wrestling with an invisible opponent on the floor before slinking off to another room. Upon their return, they would act calm, cool and collected. Now I understand why. When Andy and Carol take the abandoned Cupcake into their home, they are in for a number of surprises. It is fun to see Cupcake, the playful kitten, get tangled in wallpaper and glue while �helping� Andy decorate the new baby�s room. After she gets established in her new home, Cupcake becomes friendly with Thomas, an outside cat. Even though Cupcake is growing up, she is still unsure of herself and her actions. Through windowsill conversations, Thomas is instrumental in helping Cupcake overcome fear and develop courage. Pets have a way of becoming part of the family, and Thomas is no exception. He had once been a part of a family he missed terribly. At the end of �What the Cat Knows,� Thomas was leaving to go back to his family. Does Brent Schofield know what happened to Thomas, and if so, will he tell us in a sequel? I certainly hope so. This is more than a children�s book; I recommend it to anyone who has ever owned or observed a cat.

When a small kitten (Cupcake) is brought home, her new owners (Andy and Carol) don�t quite know what to make of her strange behavior. Since Andy and Carol have never had a cat, they didn�t realize that all cats behave this way. As it turns out, there�s more going on in the home than Andy and Carol can see. Horrible germ creatures are lurking about, trying to make people sick. Only cats can see them and it�s Cupcake�s job to make sure she keeps these creatures from getting her family sick. The kitten attacks the germ creatures, even though she is very afraid of them. Another cat (Thomas) tries to help Cupcake find her courage. Thomas also helps Cupcake understand her feelings about the new baby that has just arrived in the home. Just as Cupcake is about to conquer her fear, an evil germ creature has come into the home and it�s after the new baby.
