Summary
The friendship between a curmudgeonly old man and his uppity old cat, both of whom like potato soup, is strained after he goes fishing without her and they both learn that even the most cantankerous love can inspire acts of heroic proportions.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: With down-home language that’s a joy to read aloud, Terry Farish tells a wry, unconventional love story about an unlikely pair of curmudgeons - brought to life in glowing illustrations by Barry Root.

The cat was fond of the man’s potato soup,
which made him love her a breath more,
but not so’s you’d notice.

There was an old man, an ol’ Texas boy, who lived on a road called Chatterpie with an uppity old cat - a cat who’d rather eat potato soup than catch blackbirds. A cat who liked to go fishing and sit on the bow of the old man’s boat, her face into the wind, like she was a hood ornament. "Fool cat," the old man would say. "You ain’t nobody’s prize." Then one day something unexpected happens, and they both learn that even the most cantankerous love can inspire acts of heroic proportions - but not, of course, so’s you’d notice.
