Bob Tarte had his first encounter with a cat when he was two and a half years old. He should have learned his lesson then, from Fluffy. But as he says, "I listened to my heart instead, and that always leads to trouble." In this tell-all of how the Tarte household grew from one recalcitrant cat to six - including a hard-to-manage stray named Frannie - Tarte confesses to allowing these interlopers to shape his and his wife's life, from their dining habits to their sleeping arrangements to the placement and furriness of their furniture. But more than that, Bob begins seeing Frannie and the other cats as unlikely instructors in the art of achieving contentment, even in the face of illness and injury. Bewitched by the unknowable nature of domesticated cats, he realizes that sometimes wildness and mystery are exactly what he needs.

Bob Tarte is an admirable story teller. He and his animal loving wife care for around fifty animals including the six cats that the story focuses on. They are very kind and compassionate people who do everything in their power to keep all six cats happy. The protagonist the one Bob really loves, is skittish and unpredictable, but he never gives up hope that one day she will fall in love with him. The six cats all have very different personalities resulting in difficulties with the pecking order, occasional aggression and tempting them back inside. The logistics and organisation involved for this unusual household is quite remarkable. Kitty Cornered is a candid, funny and heartening story.
