I went straight from where I was born and grew up to my now house. Mommy and Poppy came over next door to visit me from when I was just little, so I didn't have the problems like Destiny and her children had. That's why I loved this book: It really took me into a life I've never experienced and helped me feel how lucky cats are who have humans who take care of them no matter how mixed-up human life might get. I'm too young to go through menopaws like Destiny, but now I know a little bit about what a cat can expect. Thank you, Destiny, for sharing your thoughts and feelings to Fern; and thank you, Fern, for sharing them with kitties like me and humans like Mommy. My rating: Dewclaws up!

DESTINY'S CHILDREN tells the story of the upset and turmoil shared by a cat when the cat's people have trouble in their lives. I know how that feels, because I was abandoned by a pond in the winter and had three homes that I remember before Momma rescued me. Destiny's meowmoir really touched those feelings in me of distress mixed with hope, with hope winning. My rating: Dewclaws up!
This is a book about cats and kittens, written by a cat. That’s right. A cat. You didn’t misread that or fall into a fugue state where everything is upside down in your world. Destiny’s Children is a sequel to the charming They Call Me Destiny that introduced the rescue cat and the woman who gave her a home. As I said in my review of that first book, you don’t have to be a cat lover to enjoy the anecdotes about the life of this special cat and her special owners. Or should I say the people Destiny owns.
-- DESTINY'S CHILDREN: A CAT MEOWMOIR takes up where book one left off, taking Destiny through her brief arranged tryst with a handsome boy cat, her first (and only) litter, her Big Girl Operation and subsequent menopaws, and the ... well ... destinies of her children. Meanwhile, Destiny's couple, Fern and Konny, go through turbulent times, repeatedly upsetting the lives of Destiny and her kittens.
I am always happy when I have the opportunity to reacquaint myself with an old friend, especially when that friend is a cat! I first met Destiny back in 2015 when I read and reviewed her book, They Call Me Destiny, a Meowmoir, which takes place over the span of several months in 1963. Now Destiny has returned, in Destiny’s Children, a Cat Meowmoir, the second book in a trilogy.
