Boris by Cynthia Rylant

Boris is a book of poems about a big grey cat and his owner.  As a cat lover I was drawn in by descriptions of Boris and the catty things he did.  As a somewhat extreme cat owner I was unhappy with Boris being let outside and lyrical descriptions of how much he was living life even if he disappeared one day.  Pleasant, some laugh out loud moments, but probably more appreciated by adults who are cat nuts than teens.
