The Cat That Wanders by Itself by Mrs. D. answers the question: what if your cat could speak to you? A calico cat who goes by the name of Nyda is the answer. As told in the first-person narrative, Nyda is the only female in a litter of kittens who navigates her way with the help of her mother and brothers. She certainly lives up to the title of the book, wandering into one adventure after another, which takes her away from the safety of her mother, while learning to be an independent and confident cat in the course of time. In each chapter, Nyda faces a new challenge as she seems to get into more mischief, something any cat owner can relate to. She faces indoor and outdoor confrontations with spiders, dust, frogs, and new people, until arriving at her new family home.
While reading The Cat That Wanders by Itself, I was reminded of my own feline friend of years gone by, C.C. the Cat, a rugged male tabby, who seemed to get into more trouble with each passing day yet would always come back home where purring and an occasional brush against your leg would be his way of saying, "Hello, I’m back." Nyda tells her story well, with the help of the author, Mrs. D, of course, and the illustrations by Saima Malik are marvelous. The Cat That Wanders by Itself is a delightful tale, suitable for children and cat lovers of any age.
