Holidays with Sundae: Conversations with My Cat invites you to experience the delight of conversations with a cat. Pet owners understand that their furry companions have the power of communication, but Sundae actually speaks with her "owner". Through the conversations between Sundae and James, this cat becomes as real a character as any person we know. As a thinker and critic of the human condition, Sundae's feline perspective might surprise you. Sundae becomes a mirror in which we can examine ourselves.
James T. Baker brings us into the conversation with Sundae using holidays as the springboard for their dialogue. Each holiday, thoroughly familiar to all of us, is introduced in a completely different perspective as Sundae questions why humans participate in such activities. Sundae leaves us to wonder why we did not already think of each holiday in the fresh-eyed and reverent way a cat might view our festive and reflective times. On April Fool's Day, for example, James plays a horrid prank on his companion by telling Sundae there is no more cat food in the house. Sundae decides she will positively die with hunger should she go a few hours without her food bowl full. As James reveals his prank on the unsuspecting cat, Sundae quickly turns the tables on her "owner" by pulling off an April Fool's joke of her own. Needless to say, cat "owners" will instantly identify with Sundae's particular wit and wisdom as her and James converse throughout the year.
Pet owners have long known that our animals are as much a part of our family as any human members. Holidays with Sundae: Conversations with My Cat will remind you of that seemingly simple concept should you have ever forgotten.
