The Bachelor's Cat has all the earmarks of a classic love story a holiday gift that will rival The Christmas Box and The Notebook. When a somewhat introverted and self-serving bachelor artist finds a stray kitten at his doorstep, he decides to take her in to see if he can, indeed, sustain a lasting and loving relationship with another living creature. His on-again, off-again romance with a sexy but shallow girlfriend has left him emotionally cynical, and in no time the cat becomes the central focus of his life. Through her, the man rediscovers the meaning of loyalty and affection.

Out one evening at his neighborhood bar, the man strikes up conversation with a woman. She's not his usual type a little older (closer to his age, in fact) and on the heavy side but after several minutes they are caught up in a kind of exciting conversation he never experienced with his old girlfriend. As their relationship unfolds and blossoms in new and rewardi! ng ways, the man wavers between the sincerity and depth of the woman versus the frivolous and surface sexuality of his girlfriend, and it is his trusty cat who illuminates the right path. The Bachelor's Cat is charming, emotional and rife with life's important lessons.
