'Twas the night before Christmas when a bedraggled stray white feline entered the home, and heart, of Cleveland Amory. At first the relationship seemed a clash of two stubborn wills, but despite the battles, Polar Bear did finally recognize his new name, while he settled into a comfortable friendship. A delightful true tale for anyone who has ever been owned by a cat or any pet.

About the Author:

Cleveland Amory founded The Fund for Animals in 1967, an organisation which campaigns against all forms of cruelty to animals throughout the world. He was a distinguished American journalist, satirist and novelist. Cleveland died aged 81 in 1998, and was buried next to his beloved cat, Polar Bear.

From AudioFile:

Cleveland Amory is renowned for his lifetime work in support of animal welfare, and he has written many books on the subject. A popular one is recorded here--Amory's life and musings on a rescued alley cat ultimately dubbed "Polar Bear." It could be that on the page this is a witty and amusing tale, but read by Alan Sklar with overbearing and mawkish good humor, its appeal is compromised. Amory is a fair humorist and can certainly provide enough pathos for any animal lover, but Sklar so overplays it that only the most sentimental listener will enjoy this. Comedy, admittedly, is the most difficult genre to play, and the director should have detected the problems herein. D.J.B. AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright AudioFile, Portland, Maine
