A fun and (partly) autobiographical illustrated book about growing up in a house full of malevolent cats.
Sam grew up in a big house with parents who would rather work than be with him. One day a cat turns up in the garden. Sam is happy; he has finally gotten some
company! But the joy of having a cat in the house is short-lived. His parents become obsessed, and the house gradually fills up with more and more cats, until it
is finally completely overrun with felines. Is there really any room left for Sam?
A cat’s life is based on the author’s own childhood. At one point Max Estes lived with 35 cats, most of them wild and malevolent.
