I cried so much with this book, it was a truly beautiful story of courage loyalty, friendship, life and death. I don't even have words to express it, I feel changed having read this book.

From amazon:

A book that “speak[s] volumes about our need for connection—human, feline or otherwise” (The San Francisco Chronicle), The Travelling Cat Chronicles is a life-affirming anthem to kindness and self-sacrifice that shows how the smallest things can provide the greatest joy—the perfect gift for cat lovers and travellers!

We take journeys to explore exotic new places and to return to the comforts of home, to visit old acquaintances and to make new friends. But the most important journey is the one that shows us how to follow our hearts...

An instant international bestseller and indie bestseller, The Travelling Cat Chronicles has charmed readers around the world. With simple yet descriptive prose, this novel gives voice to Nana the cat and his owner, Satoru, as they take to the road on a journey with no other purpose than to visit three of Satoru's longtime friends. Or so Nana is led to believe...

With his crooked tail—a sign of good fortune—and adventurous spirit, Nana is the perfect companion for the man who took him in as a stray. And as they travel in a silver van across Japan, with its ever-changing scenery and seasons, they will learn the true meaning of courage and gratitude, of loyalty and love.

I don't have words to adequately express how much I loved this beautiful beautiful book. I only loved it the teensiest bit less than the predecessor, The Traveling Cat Chronicles. Two of these stories cover the human and cat characters from that book.

From amazon:
Against the backdrop of changing seasons in Japan, we meet Spin, a kitten rescued from the recycling bin, whose playful nature and simple needs teach an anxious father how to parent his own human baby; a colony of wild cats on a popular holiday island show a young boy not to stand in nature’s way; a family is perplexed by their cat’s undying devotion to their charismatic but uncaring father; a woman curses how her cat will not stop visiting her at night; and an elderly cat hatches a plan to pass into the next world as a spirit so that he and his owner may be in each other’s lives forever.

Bursting with love and warmth, The Goodbye Cat exquisitely explores the cycle of life, from birth to death—as each of the seven stories explores how, in different ways, the steadiness and devotion of a well-loved cat never lets us down. A huge bestseller in Japan, this magical book is a joyous celebration of the wondrousness of cats and why we choose to share our lives with them.

I read the Traveling Cat Chronicles and was very excited to read the Goodbye Cat as a result. This wasn’t what I expected. I was expecting a novella rather than a series of shorter stories, but I loved the book regardless.

The only part that gave me pause was when I realized the final story in the book was retelling the Traveling Cat Chronicles. I was a little disappointed at first that the author chose to recycle material in a previous work, but the author told parts of the story that weren’t in the original book. I thought this was very clever as it kept me interested, and I was happy to hear more from the first story I loved so much.

The author has such a great way of capturing the essence of a cat, I couldn’t help but smile throughout the book. Although sometimes bittersweet and sad, this book is mostly filled will good feels and warm fuzzies. It was a very lovely way to spend an afternoon.
