Behind the Story
From the moment Jake came into her life, he made his feelings about cats perfectly clear – they were best served on a plate, with a side order of fries! This was very disheartening to author Christine Davis, because she wanted to adopt a kitty and bring some magical feline energy into her home. Jake, however, wasn’t going to make this easy.
In May of 1998, the author looked out her window and saw Jake with his ears up and his head cocked sideways, staring at the ground.
Sitting by his feet was a tiny kitten. It had badly infected eyes, and probably couldn’t see the big dog drooling over it. Chris ran outside, hoping to prevent the cat attack she felt sure was coming. But Jake just stared at the helpless creature, then looked up at her and then turned back to the kitten. Perhaps it was because he remembered a time when he, too, had needed a home – we will never know. But in that one moment, Jake opened his heart to the tabby kitten, and little Pippen become part of the family.
More meowing told them that Pippen was not an only child. Indeed, she had a brother who was hiding under the deck. With a little bit of food as encouragement, the black kitten with the bent tail crawled out, and that is how Dickens found his place in the household. Later that night, the mama cat left three more kittens on the front porch. Molly, a black and white tuxedo cat, and Star and Gracie, her sleek, black sisters, were brought in from the cold, and Jake’s kittens were finally safe and the family was complete.
Jake brooded over his feline family, licking the formula off their faces and nosing them back if they wandered too far. He allowed the kittens to swarm over him, snuggling into his thick, warm fur.
Although Gracie was destined to make her home with some good friends, Dickens, Pippen, Molly and Star immediately settled in and took over the house. Jake’s days became very busy, what with four active charges to take care of.
But it was the author whose life was changed forever. She hadn’t realized there had been four empty places in her heart that only these little furballs could fill. She hadn’t realized she had needed a feline fairy Godmother, a role that Pippen was meant to fill. She hadn’t realized life could be so much more fun if you looked at the world through the eyes of a kitten.
For Every Cat An Angel was written to welcome Dickens, Pippen, Molly and Star into the Davis household.
Although Dickens, Pippen and Star are now flying through the heavens with all my angel dogs, I still feel their magical presence in my heart and home. May they watch over me until we can all be together again.
From the Author
“For as long as I can remember I was connected to fur, but that fur was always connected to a dog! It was not until later in my life that I was blessed with a litter of three-week old kittens, discovered in the yard by my dog, Jake. The kitties quickly took over Jake’s bed and both of our hearts. It was not long before I realized I was in awe of those cat creatures. They cast a spell over me that I knew could never be broken. For those of you who have been enchanted by cat magic, too, I offer this little book.” – Chris Davis
“A charming story and illustrations.”

“I recently lost my cat Misti quite suddenly. Val (Heart) sent me a copy of your book For Every Cat An Angel after Misti died. I read it aloud with Rocki – Misti’s grandmother – purring on my lap. It is a beautiful book and Rocki and I both enjoyed it. I think everyone who loves animals – and of course loses them – needs to know about you and your books.”

“When my forever kitty Eca died, a friend gave me “For Every Cat an Angel.” Brokenhearted, I read this magical little book again and again. The angelic wisdom guiding this book revealed a continuing story which eased the raw grief I was feeling. Chris Davis knew my wound and I knew a kindred spirit. For Every Cat (and Dog) an Angel is the story behind life and beyond death and I give it to all my friends. And oh yes, now I have Thunder – a gift from Eca beyond my wildest dreams. ”
