Review: Cat Girl's Day Off by Kimberly Pauley

Never listen to a cat. That will only get you in trouble.

Actually, scratch that. Listening to cats is one thing, but really I should never listen to my best friend Oscar. It's completely his fault (okay, and my aspiring actress friend Melly's too) that I got caught up in this crazy celebrity-kidnapping mess.

If you had asked me, I would have thought it would be one of my super-Talented sisters who'd get caught up in crime fighting. I definitely never thought it would be me and my Talent trying to save the day. Usually, all you get out of conversations with cats is requests for tummy rubs and tuna.

Wait . . . I go back to what I said first: Never listen to a cat. Because when the trouble starts and the kitty litter hits the fan, trust me, you don't want to be in the middle of it.

I'm not sure exactly why I chose to request this book, but I'm glad I did.

Cat Girl's Day Off is about Natalie Ng, a teenager with the ability to talk to cats. It seems like a useless Talent, but after stumbling into a kidnapping plot, her ability could very well save her.

This book is sort of Nancy Drew meets Sky High. Nat, along with her friends Oscar and Melly, sets out to find out who is behind the kidnapping of a famous blogger. I wouldn't say it was the best mystery I've ever read, but it was a pretty interesting plot and it did keep me guessing.

Nat is an interesting character, but I found her friends a little bit annoying sometimes. Her love interest Ian, though, is a charming guy.

My favorite characters in the book aren't the people, though. I like the cats. Rufus and Meep are hilarious. If you like cats, this is a definite must-read.

Thanks to NetGalley and Tu Books for the e-ARC.

  1. Creative story.
  2. It's a fun, almost campy read.
  3. The cats are funny.
  1. There are some cliche parts.
I am Purr Daddy. You can call me PD. The humans here call me Pebbles.

  2. You are curious what cats might be thinking.
