Book Review-Avalon by Vanessa Morgan

Avalon by Vanessa Morgan is one of the most moving books I have read. It centers on the author and her cat and the immeasurable bond they shared. Ms. Morgan found the stray Turkish Van cat and the love was instant.

Avalon was the kind of cat who needed an exclusive relationship with his human and repaid that respect with unending love. Ms. Morgan gave Avalon everything he required, even when it may have seemed unusual. He was the center of her world, and she, his. With her, Avalon was affectionate and loyal while other people only saw his insecurities expressed as destructive behavior.

While reading Avalon's story, the emotion between them was palpable. Maybe it was because I was reading it on the anniversary of losing my heart cat, but I connected with Ms. Morgan and her love for Avalon instantly. It made me feel like the relationship I had with Sebastian wasn't so different. Someone else had that with their cat as well.

I shed some tears as I read Avalon, but they were so worth it to get a glimpse of this special cat and his immense ability to love his human. It is well written and I would happily read Ms. Morgan's other books. I would highly recommend this book to all cat lovers. In fact, I'm going to suggest it as a book for my Twitter book club, ReadPawty.
