bugmenot said: This story takes place in Venice, Italy, in the 1890s, and is based on an actual cat who became a famous resident of a coffee shop there. Little does Nonna Framboni know that when she decides to feed a stray white cat that Nini will bring fortune and fame to her and her humble caffe. It all begins when the famous composer Giuseppe Verdi sits down for a cup of coffee and is inspired by Nini's meowing. Soon people are dropping in for coffee and a look at the remarkable cat, whose behavior is interpreted to settle arguments and even to bless the Pope himself. At the end of the book the author tells us that most of the famous people in the book really did visit Nini. Amazing! Best of all, there's a photo of the actual coffee shop, which is still in existence today. Great story. A must-read for cat lovers! My recent post: SEO Revolution PLR Review Sent from
