If you loved David Michie’s The Dalai Lama’s Cat, then you will surely enjoy the sequel- The Dalai Lama’s Cat and The Art of Purring. As the title suggests, in this novel HHC (His Holiness’s Cat) concerns herself with the finding of something humans also desire- the true cause of happiness. Left at home whilst HH goes on tour, she entertains herself by becoming involved in the lives of her human friends in the little Himalayan town of McLeod Ganj. Through her eyes we follow the twists and turns of their pursuit of this often elusive goal. It is a delightful, uplifting tale, full of simple wisdom to enrich the heart and mind, and, of course, plenty of saucers of milk (lactose-free, naturally)!
