A Cat Called Birmingham

The exploits of a hapless cat for whom nine lives are not nearly enough In the long history of mankind's relationship with felines, one cat stands head and shoulders below the rest. Highly inflammable, the glass-jawed Birmingham lurches from one catastrophe to the next. Through encounters with washing machine spin cycles to his lovelorn pursuit of the aggressively uninterested Sammy, Chris Pascoe's hilarious book paints an intimate portrait of the author's calamitous relationship with a cat wholly unsuited to being feline. Persistently molested by an irate sparrow, physically incapable of negotiating the intricacies of the cat-flap and with a near-fatal appreciation of the effects of gravity, Brum nevertheless remains steadfast in his subconscious pursuit of oblivion. Worryingly, these stories are true. Will nine lives be enough?

About the Author

Chris Pascoe lives in High Wycombe with his wife, daughter and two cats (at the last count).


'An original comic voice - wry, assured, sometimes whimsical and sometimes surreal but throughout refreshingly uncynical ... the best kind of humour' -- Julian Dutton, writer, Alistair MacGowan Show 'Charming' -- Free Press 'This eccentric memoir has very little to do with the West Midland's favourite conurbation. Instead, it's the rather charming story of Mr Pascoe's own pet, a madcap moggy who can't help but cause mayhem ... ' -- Birmingham Sunday Mercury 'Anyone who loves or knows cats will be able to relate to Chris Pascoe's hilarious and affectionate account of the hapless Birmingham's adventures. I literally cried with laughter.' -- Jo Rothery (Editor, Cat World Magazine) 'I read this with tears of laughter rolling down my cheeks.' -- Eila Reid, Editor of My Weekly
