DOUGAL'S DIARY - David Greagg

Dougal is an ordinary cat, living an ordinary life as a household pet. His diary tells the story of his life, beginning as a newborn kitten and ending as a happy household cat. Along the way he has several visits to the pound and shares adventures with fellow adoptee Shadow. You discover what Dougal thinks of all the things that happen to him and exactly how he sees the people and other creatures he interacts with.

I think this is a very good book. I love how the cats don’t play when human are around, and then play for hours when they are gone. It’s interesting to read how cats describe man-made machines, but it can be confusing to begin, whilst you work out what they are talking about. However, I really enjoyed reading how a cat might see things and how they feel. I recommend this book to animal lovers and people who likes to read different viewpoints.
