One winter morning the author discovered a cat, whom he would later find was homeless sitting outside his bedroom window, staring at him with big yellow eyes. Slowly but surely the cat worked itself into his life.
This award-winning writer who has a background in psychology could not stop himself from going deeper into the cat's inner life. Does she have a sense of humor? Is it possible to attach human feelings to her?
And the trickiest question of all: Is our little cat actually interested in our attachment to her? With humor and self-awareness, Nils describes how his existence changed after the cat moved into his house. The feelings she stirs up are a surprise to him and he quickly finds himself falling in love with this speckled grey-brown little lady.
"This little book is as adorable as a six-week old kitten...irresistible." Expressen*
The Old Man and The Cat is a story of how Nils Uddenberg, retired Professor of Psychology became a beloved cat-owner even though he had never wanted a pet of any kind.
