A heartwarming and cathartic book for anyone who has ever loved, and lost, a cat. This is the story of a cat, told by the little girl who loved him best. From his first plaintive mew to his last loving purr, Desser was an essential member of the family. And for the little girl, especially, he was a constant companion.

Smith (Dear Daisy, Get Well Soon, 2000, et. handles the cat's decline with a delicate honesty. The expressive illustrations deftly convey the emotional tenor of the tale. When Desser does die, readers and the narrator are prepared, though sorrowful. What follows is a burial, "with most of his toys and plenty of treats for the long journey up to Cat Heaven," and the eventual arrival of a new kitten. Smith's renderings of Desser's antics capture the many facets of cathood-from regal aloofness to downright silliness. Every drawing is a salute to the deep bonds between child and pet, filled with typical activities and lots of details.

MY FRIEND AND NEIGHBOR HAD 2 OF HER CATS DIE A COUPLE OF MONTHS APART-JAN 20, 2015 AND EASTER NIGHT 2015 AND NOW HER 15 YEAR OLD BLACK LAB/BEAGLE MIX IS VERY SICK WITH 5 CANCEROUS TUMORS AND MAY NOT LIVE MUCH LONGER. I HAVE 3 CATS MYSELF, ONE OF WHICH IS A MALE, BLACK AND WHITE TUXEDO CAT, OREO, MY INSPIRATION FOR GETTING THIS BOOK. THE OTHER WAS I HAD READ SOME GRADE SCHOOL CHILDREN'S PET LOSS BOOKS ON DOGS AND WAS LOOKING FOR SOME ON CATS, SINCE I DON'T HAVE A DOG, YET. THIS WAS A BEAUTIFUL, SAD, LITTLE STORY, BUT DEFINETELY WELL WORTH IT, ALONG WITH "THE DAY TIGER ROSE SAID GOOD-BYE," "I REMEMBER (LET'S TALK ABOUT IT! BOOKS," AND "THE RAINBOW BRIDGE: A VISIT TO PET PARADISE."THESE BOOKS ARE SOME OF THE VERY BEST YOU'LL EVER READ IF YOU'RE AN ANIMAL LOVER!!!!!!

I couldn't figure out what to tell my toddler when our sick family cat left for the vet and never returned. ASPCA and other sites told me that a 3-year-old will not be afraid of the concept of death, but they will be afraid of the concept of a pet disappearing and no one ever talking about it or responding when they ask where the pet went. So I took the experts' advice and got this book, and answered "the cat died and went to cat heaven" when asked. (The Pope recently announced that dogs go to heaven, so I have it on good authority that this is the case.) We read the book together and I replaced some of the details with information more relevant to our situation. I totally cried the entire time I was reading it and the kiddo asked me to read it three times. In the end, the questions about where the cat went kind of trickled off and now we read the book occasionally and I read it verbatim rather than replacing the name and details. It was a difficult situation for everyone and the book helped.

for the death of our 14 year old cat. This book fits our situation near exactly. An unmarried young man didnt know who the kitten at his door belonged to, so he took him in. The cat was very playful, zooming all over the house. The man then gets married, and Desser the cat likes his new house. Then kids come along. He doesnt like the children at first, but grows fond of them. He gets old, and slows down. When he dies, they have a ceremony, and eventually, "because they are cat people," they get a new cat from an animal shelter. Our 5 yr old daughter tells many people that our cat's "kidneys are broken, and he'll be going to kitty heaven pretty soon. We'll get a new kitty because we are cat people." She even asked if she could help bury him, like the kids in the Desser book did. When reading the book to her, she likes to put in our cats name instead, every time it says "Desser." The pictures are very good too. OUTSTANDING BOOK, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!

I recommend this book for anyone who loves cats. While recovering from the loss of my cat, I've read books for adults and for children. The ones that have helped me the most are those that are written very simply, in plain language and with a tender heart. "Desser" certainly belongs in this group. The illustrations are excellent. They show Desser at all stages of his life. I was especially touched by the drawings of Desser as he aged.
