Publisher's Summary

Pilar is a six-toed Abyssinian cat whose forebears lived with Ernest Hemingway at his house in Key West. When she and her owner, Ryan, move up north, they both have a hard time getting accustomed to the cold weather until Ryan starts to get pointers from his lovely coworker, Lisa.

In true feline fashion, Pilar can't resist sticking her six-toed paw into the budding romance between Ryan and Lisa with charming and sometimes surprising results in the first two stories in this collection.

In "The Temple of Lights," efficiency expert Robert Lehmann discovers just how much havoc a woman can bring to his life while the funny-naive heroine of "You're Pretty When You Smile, Ima Jean" goes out in search of her life and finds something she wasn't looking for.

And in the final story, "The Cat Who Ran Away," the sleek, regal Rajah leads Susan to figure out that perhaps you really can go home again.

Men and women meet, fall in love, and stumble over obstacles in the five charming stories included here from award-winning romance author Neil S. Plakcy, but the ending is always a happy one.

Purrre romance!

I'll start off by saying I love cats, and that I agreed to leave a review in exchange for a copy of the book.

I gobbled it up in a day, the multiple-story format was great and all stories were cute and uplifting. Also, the stories had cats but were not -about- cats, you see? This way, even if you're not a huge cat fan you can still enjoy them!

Cute and original

I found this book to be an easy listen. I really enjoyed the narrators voice and thought he brought some emotion to the stories. The story of Pillar was my favorite of this set. The author was new to me, but I have heard the narrator previously. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and or publisher.

Nice Short Story

Nice short story on audiobook about Pilar that's a six toes Abyssinian cat that lives in a house in Key West with her owner, Ryan. They both move up north and have a hard time adapting to the cold weather and gets pointers from his lovely coworker, Lisa. Pilar gets between Ryan and Lisa's romance at times.

Awesome!!!

I loved the cat stories & wished there was more. Some stories left you hanging & wondering what happened? Otherwise, very good. I received this book for free from the author for a honest review.

Love the stories!!!

What did you love best about The Cat Who Got Married and Other Purr-fectly Romantic Stories?

"I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."
I think that the stories were spunky and different. Any cat lover can identify with them...
I was not however taken by the performance when the lead character was a woman. The performance came out somewhat flat. Not all the stories are about cats, but they all are about romance...

What did you like best about this story?

The romantic nature of them, even if not all truly credible

Would you listen to another book narrated by Kelly Libatique?

Only for male characters

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh for sure, but also think...

Any additional comments?

Looking forward to discover more books by this author

Heartwarming Cat Tails :)

One does not have to be a "cat purrrson" to enjoy this playful temperamental cat!

Coincidentally, three years ago, I wasn't happy when Kitten found a home with us. (Why name cats? They don't come when you call them. Only if they hear food, right?)
And I really wasn't a happy camper when I worked a 19 hour day ... and drove home with a baby kitten who hissed at anyone who came near her and beat up her brothers and sisters until I walked by and she clawed her way up my legs and jumped into my shirt! (The mom found sheltor for her kittens in a store during a hailstorm.)

Anyone can imagine my three year old Kitten thought this newbie was a 'snack' when we walked into the door.
A few minutes later, “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author."

I took it as a sign from the Cat Goddess. So this will be Little Cat's forever home, also.

Great. Just when my younger son had worked a year after high school and was about to move out and I was counting the big money I'd have for myself, I'll still use those funds for vet bills, food, and replacing furniture....

This book made me smile and keep in mind. Cats are amazing.

Listen or read this FABULOUS "feel good" book!

Cute Collection of Short Stories

This is a cute collection of short stories. The first and second stories are about native Floridian Ryan and his Abyssinian cat Pilar, and native Georgian Lisa, all three transplanted to Philadelphia and trying to stay warm. In the third story, socially awkward loner Robert finds his orderly world changed when he meets the one woman he feels comfortable with. In the fourth story, simple naive Ima Jean loses her aunt and is left adrift until she decides to make her own way. The last story is about Susan returning home for a visit, meeting a hot new neighbor, and helping to look for a lost cat.

Being short stories these aren't typical romances, but there is time in each for character development. I particularly liked Robert and can identify with dodging neighbors because making meaningless conversation is difficult! Neil Plakcy is obviously a cat lover, he put so much detail into the Abyssinian cat Pilar's personality.

The narrator was good, he pulled me into the story. He didn't attempt female voices for female speakers, and everything was narrated smoothly with no jarring notes. I was provided a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

The Cat Who Got Married

The Cat Who Got Married and Other Purr-fectly Romantic Stories
: Neil S. Plakcy

This is a fun collection of short romance stories some featuring cats. A quick and light listen for a boring day.




The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed by Kelly Libatique.

A Good Collection of Short Stories

The Cat Who Got Married and Other Purr-fectly Romantic Stories was a good listen. It was a collection of short stories mostly involvong cats. They were well written and enjoyable. My favorite was the first one with Pilar, the Hemmingway cat but they were all good.

This is the first time I've listened to anything written by Neil S. Plakcy and after listening to this one and seeing his other audiobooks are based on animals, I'll listen to more by him.

Kelly Libatique's narration was very good. It sounded like there were long sentences, which I love, and they came across very well through audio. This was a good combination of author/reader.
