As everyone is aware I love animals so when I saw the chance to review ”The Cat That God Sent” and “The Dog That Talked To God” by Jim Kraus I jumped. Look below for the reviews of both of these books and I know if you are animal lovers like I am you will love these books.
The Cat That God Sent Review
This was one of the cutest books I think I have ever read. I am a total cat person so from the moment I started this book I was hooked. I can totally see the parts where the cat is “talking” happening and I often wonder if my own cats don’t think the same things when they look and interact with me. You follow along with Jake during this book as he arrives at his new assignment and everything that goes on with him and Petey the cat. I don’t want to say much more because I don’t want to give anything away but this is heart warming story that I know everyone will love if you are an animal lover.
The Dog That Talked To God Review
I really enjoyed this book. In this book you are following along with Mary Fassler as she is dealing with the loss of her family. She adopts Rufus who is a Miniature Schnauzer. She gets him when she needs him the most and he talks to her and God. I really enjoyed this book but I did’t like it as much as the cat book but I know that is just because I am such a cat person and not a huge dog person. The dog helps her heal and “move on” with her life. I know that animals can help you heal just like Rufus helped Mary heal. If you love sweet stories and dogs I know this book is for you.

The Cat That God Sent
Meet Petey, your not-so-average cat-on a mission from God
Disillusioned young pastor, Jake Wilkerson, has just arrived at his new assignment in the small rural church of Coudersport, Pennsylvania. Also new on the scene is Petey, acat of unknown origins and breed-but of great perception.
As Jake sets about doing the business of ministry, Petey’s continued interference brings chaos to thecommunity of curiously off and eccentric people-residents like the faith-avoiding veterinarian Sally Grainger and Tassy, a young runaway with a secret. An expert at hiding his fears, Jake wonders if all this-and the cat to boot-is more than he can handle. What is Petey’s real “mission”? Perhaps something larger than Jake—or even Petey—can possibly know.
The Dog That Talked To God
Recently widowed Mary Fassler buys a Miniature Schnauzer, Rufus, and her world is turned sideways inthe midst of her grief. It seems that Rufus speaks. And not just to her. He also talks to God. When Rufus begins sharing advice that could result in major changes, Mary gets the feeling the pooch might not be steering her in the right direction. Or, is she just afraid to takethe leap and discover something she desperately needs? Only Rufus…and God…knows.
