Lyla is having the worst year of her life and then her Mum announces they are moving to a strange new town. The only silver lining is the signs that a cat has made itself home in the new house. Lyla quickly finds out though that Shimmer is no ordinary cat....
This was a heartwarming but sad tale and in all honesty, made me go and give both my cats big (unwanted on their part) hugs. One of my cats went missing last year and it was awful, and reading this tale, I like to think Jet acted the same way as Shimmer. Thankfully she came home after a couple of days.
I related to Lyla, who recently lost her dad and just wanted comfort from a cat. Side entrance Shimmer.
I had no idea what to expect from these 86 pages but I didn’t expect a story that I got. It was touching to see the loyalty and love of an animal. A refreshing way to help look at loss.
