‘Kit Kat and Lucy: The Country Cats Who Changed a City Girl’s World’ by Lonnie Hull Dupont

kkal-lhdpSTORY: The True Story of How Two Quirky Stray Cats Changed Their Adopted Human Forever

After years of loving the vibrant city life in San Francisco, Lonnie Hull DuPont reluctantly trades her three-room apartment on foggy, lively Telegraph Hill for a farmhouse on a quiet plain in Michigan. She immediately misses the rhythm and the pace of the city, and the isolation country living brings has her longing for something more.

Enter Kit Kat and Lucy–stray cats who arrive at the farmhouse a year apart and each ask to move in. The antics and oddities of these two strong personalities wrapped in fur bring a new light to the farmhouse and DuPont’s life. Kit Kat, an obsessive-compulsive tortoiseshell, can purr her new human into a happier state of mind. Lucy, the playful, leaping Russian Blue who can nail a bat right out of the air, makes her laugh.

From the hysterical process of getting two strange cats to like each other, to the exciting years of watching those cats thrive–and inspire DuPont in the process–this book is an energetic tale of cat and human foibles. Animals enrich our lives, and the heartwarming story of how Kit Kat and Lucy changed one woman’s world will leave readers enchanted.

REVIEW: Lonnie lived for many years in San Francisco and loved the history, hills, weather, and views. Living in the heart of the city for so long, she realizes she missed the rural lifestyle and animals where she had grownup.

She and her husband, Joe, decided to move to Michigan. They bought a very old house that was quite large and they loved it. Joe, being allergic to cats, they decided not to adopt any, but one day, a stray cat latched onto Joe. Surprisingly, his allergies were not bothered by the kitty. They named her Kit Kat and she was a tortoiseshell. Joe quickly taught the kitty how to use the litterbox and a scratching post. They grew to love her so much as they learned her many quirky ways.

Lonnie has always been a worrier, but she discovered that being around animals calms her.

One day, a beautiful Russian blue kitten showed up at their door. Not knowing how Kit Kat would react, they knew they had to keep this beautiful little girl. They named her Lucy and after some time, Lucy and Kit Kat became good friends.

The story follows the lives of Lonnie and Joe as their loving kitties become total family to them offering so much love.

This is a delightful story of how kitties become so close to us and are like family members. The love they give us is unconditional and everlasting. It made me laugh and, yes, it made me cry. I hope readers will take the time to read this book. It’s like a balm for the soul.
