Smokey the Very Loud Purring Cat
Meet Smokey. An official international cat celebrity - as recognised by the Guniness World Records - due to her incredible loud purr. Smokey has appeared on American ABC News, NBC News, BBC World Service, Daybreak and in all the UK National newspapers.
Through no fault of her own Smokey was passed through several homes before finalling settling with the Adams family.
Through volunteering to help promote welfare messages for her local branch of Cats Protection, her loud purring talent was discovered by the media and led to her entry in the 2011 Guinness Book of World Records.
Now Smokey tells the story of her rise to fame in her own words, with the help of owner Ruth Adams of course. Touching and light hearted, if you're not a cat lover already, you're guaranteed to be one after reading this extraordinary tale.
The foreword is written by the RSPCA and there is a review of the book by Larry the Number 10 Downing Street Cat!
About the Human Author
Ruth Adams was born in a village in Derbyshire, and studied art at Aberystwyth and the Bournemouth and Poole College of Art and Design. Ruth and her family share their farm home with many animals, including ponies, goats, hens, bullocks, dogs, cats & fish
Smokey is a bit woolly on the details of her previous seven homes, so the story is part fact and part fiction. The two big facts are: Smokey is officially the world record holder for Loudest Purring Cat and the home would not be the same without Smokey.
