My Book Review:
In her second memoir, Something Furry Underfoot, author Amy L. Peterson weaves a humorous and touching account of her family's adoption and growing menagerie of pets, and helpful tips for the pet lover/owner. This enchanting story is written in a witty style, the author's love for animals is clearly evident in her true life account of living and caring for a variety of animals that her husband and stepkids added to their family.
As an animal lover and pet owner of four fur babies (1 Brown Lab, 2 Bichon Frise, and 1 Poodle), I can relate to Amy's menagerie of animals. Growing up I raised rabbits, had parakeets, dogs and the occasional hermit crab, and the feelings of love and care for each of my animals is filled with wonderful memories and humorous trials and tribulations that are locked in my heart forever.
I thought that Something Furry Underfoot was a wonderful story. It is filled with snippets of humor that will keep you in stitches, and the inspirational love for animals will have fellow pet owners nodding their head in agreement and admiration. Animal lovers and pet owners will learn a lot from Amy's helpful pet tips, it's a must read for anyone who already has an animal, or wants to add an animal to their family.
Animals have a way of touching a person's heart and life with an unconditional love that is like no other.
Kudos to Amy for writing a truly heartwarming and enjoyable story that all animal lovers will adore.
RATING: 4 STARS ****
About The Author
In the mid 1990s, I fell for a guy with four kids, ages 3,5, 13 and 15 and since I didn't have a clue what I was doing, I documented my experience. That was the basis for From Zero to Four Kids in Thirty Seconds, my humorous, touching memoir about becoming a stepmom. It's filled with tips, most of which are about stepmoms, some of which are universal to pretty much all relationships.
While I was getting used to being a stepmom, my husband was bringing one pet after another into our house. Frogs and iguanas came and went and then the pets came to stay: ferrets, hedgehogs, dogs, a cat, rabbits, a domestic duck, mynah birds and countless numbers of small rodents. Something Furry Underfoot is my humorous, touching memoir about helping to raise all those pets and making their lives as good as possible. This book has 50 tips about pets and the people who love pets.
