"The Cat that God Sent" by Jim Kraus

Jake Wilkerson is a pastor who has just been called to a church in Coudersport, Pennsylvania. This small town has much in store for Jake, especially Petey, a cat who always seems to be around. What can Jake learn from a cat? How can Petey help the town?

Jake suffered the loss of many things in his life when he questioned his faith. Now, he has a new church in a small town where he hopes to realize a renewal of spirit and faith. He is met by a cat with a wounded paw. The vet takes care of the paw and Jake has a friend for life. Petey wants to be everywhere Jake is, including church, which intrigues the congregants and brings more of them to church. Is Petey just what is necessary to bring life back to the church and to Jake? Come meet Petey, the Cat that God sent.

This is a wonderful story that shows the way that pets help us overcome difficulties. They don't judge and just want to be with us. But they can talk to us as well, and sometimes it seems that they are telling us to get our act together. If you enjoy stories about cats, or know someone who is discouraged and could use a lift, this book is for you. I am happily part of the Litfuse blog tour!

About The Cat That God Sent: 

Meet Petey, your not-so-average cat-on a mission from God

Disillusioned young pastor, Jake Wilkerson, has just arrived at his new assignment in the small rural church of Coudersport, Pennsylvania. Also new on the scene is Petey, a cat of unknown origins and breed-but of great perception.

As Jake sets about doing the business of ministry, Petey's continued interference brings chaos to the community of curiously off and eccentric people-residents like the faith-avoiding veterinarian Sally Grainger and Tassy, a young runaway with a secret. An expert at hiding his fears, Jake wonders if all this-and the cat to boot-is more than he can handle. What is Petey's real "mission"? Perhaps something larger than Jake---or even Petey---can possibly know.
