BODACIOUS: THE SHEPHERD CAT is a heart-warming and charming tale in
which Bodacious tells us about life as The Shepherd Cat on Black
Sheep Farm. `I am Bodacious, The Shepherd Cat , and this is my
story. I wasn't always called Bodacious. I must have been called
something else in my kitten-hood in the nearby city of Kilkenny,
but it's all a bit of a mystery to My Human. As far as she's
concerned, I appeared one day and have never left. It's a secret I
plan to keep.' Written from the perspective of Bodacious the cat,
this is a beautifully written memoir of Bodacious's life on the
farm and everything that entails - early mornings, frosty starts,
beautiful sunrises, adventurous rare-breed Zwartbles sheep, hard
work, entertaining animals, mouth-watering food, kind people and
idyllic country living with its highs and lows. The Shepherd often
tells Bodacious her favourite story of how she went out to buy red
ribbon to wrap a gift for her friend, but instead came home with a
gift for herself: a daring, assertive, ambitious cat looking for a
home. But soon The Shepherd realises she needs Bodacious as much as
he needs her. As soon as he arrives, Bodacious saunters around the
farm like he owns the place and immediately establishes himself as
Top Cat. But Bodacious isn't content to pad round the house and
curl up by the Aga, and soon he befriends a farm cat called Oscar
who trains him in the ways of the farm. As well as Oscar, Bodacious
gets to know all the other animals on the farm - cats Miss Marley
and Ovenmitt, the scruffy border collie/fox terrier-cross called
Pepper, and The Big Fellow, to name a few. With wonderful
characterisation, humour, sharp observation, and a plucky attitude,
Bodacious shows us the ropes of Black Sheep Farm. As we soak in the
atmosphere of the house, the orchards and the fields, we also learn
how this Top Cat Shepherd got his name - by being 'Big, bold,
beautiful, bolshie', as his Shepherd always says...
