Michael E Jones’s Cat Tales: Da Real Pussy features stories and observations made by the author about cats. Michael E Jones, through this book, brings vivid memories to mind. Memories of times when, as children, we would swap stories about our household pets or something we saw animals do in the neighborhood. These stories were told not for any reason except they were fun to listen to, they said something about human nature, fascinated us and left us pondering the deeper mysteries of life. These stories were a conduit to deeper thought and reverie. Michael E Jones accomplishes the same in Cat Tales: Da Real Pussy.
The writing is beautiful, skillful, it has a vibrancy and a personality that is enamoring. It is impossible to be bored reading anything Michael E Jones writes in these pages. Michael E Jones has a way of pulling you into his shoes, a way that largely goes unmatched elsewhere. In each story, the cats are the objects of interests and command a lot of the attention, but from a bird’s eye view, the people who play supporting roles in these stories morph into main interests. It is a whimsical trick, one that serves as a metaphor, intentionally or unintentionally, about how interconnected humans and animals are. Although Cat Tales: Da Real Pussy revolves around cats, it somehow manages to say a lot about humans, community and more. Through Cat Tales: Da Real Pussy, we are taken back to a far more innocent time when we saw things a little too brightly for our own good.
