New Release ~ The Cattery by K.A. Merikan

Cover by: Natasha Snow

--- Role-playing a cat for six months? You said you’re paying how much? ---

Goran’s mouth has no filter, and it’s losing him job after job. Desperate and a week away from being homeless, he finds an offer online that sounds too good to be true. Spending six months in a mansion by the beach in return for a hundred thousand dollars as long as he sticks to the house rules. 

This might be the one job where his unruly mouth doesn’t get in the way. After all, saying the wrong thing is impossible… when you’re role-playing a cat.

Meeting all the other guys at the cattery seems to be the icing on the cake, but the inconvenient truth he dishes out turns out to be too much. Goran makes everyone his enemy, but worst of all, Ollie, the prettiest cat of the bunch, the one who’s been in the cattery the longest, and the one who makes Goran’s heart skip a beat. 

Ollie’s big blue eyes hold secrets Goran is intent on cracking, but to do so, he will need to learn to bite his tongue and listen. Too bad the pretty blond ice prince is set on getting Goran kicked out of the cattery for good.

I know you're going to see this and be like 'how strange'. would be, but it isn't, per se. 

I thought the light that shone on Luis was great, he wasn't creepy at all. Just a man trying to look for affection the way
he would be comfortable with. The way he treated the guys or his "cats" was super sweet. They all seemed to generally get a long and it was pretty hot.

Goran was excellent. He was man enough to try and fix his mistakes with his family and make his own way. I liked that he kind of just said what was on his mind, even if it got him in trouble. I think that made him a great candidate to be in The Cattery, as cats just kind of do what they want anyways. The story itself though isn't just about the Cattery
but the comradery and relationships that bloom within it. I didn't quite understand Cin's game, as it wasn't really a competition, but I think it helped Ollie into pushing him into a decision. 

I thought this story was sweet and a bit emotional and just plain fun. I liked all the guys, except Cin, of course. But I think my favorite was Clove :) I also kind of want to be a cat myself now. My heart broke a few times, especially for Goran towards the end there. To give up so much for someone to think they aren't going to return it. I will say it has a pretty sweet ending. 

I do wonder about Luis and if he will always keep up the roleplaying or will he one day find that one person for him. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Review by

I was a little apprehensive going into this book because I didn’t think that pet play was going to be for me.  I have seen documentaries on some various pet play and it kinda freaked me out…pony play anyone? Anyway, I now want to be a cat, not just any old cat but one of Louis’s cats. He really was a very sweet and loving master to his kitties.

Goran can’t hold his tongue to save his soul and I absolutely loved him for it. He was in a hard place in his life, and when he joined the cattery he thought all of his problems would be solved. I just don’t think he thought he was going to come up against one of his biggest problems yet….love.

Ollie’s story broke my heart. I feel like he was such a lost boy, all he really wanted was love. He just thought that the love he wanted was from Louis, not another cat.
I loved the dynamic between all the cats in the cattery. And I would really like to read more about them. Well except for Cin, he was a massive

I really hope you let the pet play behind this story scare you, because at the end of it all it’s about love.
