A Helping Paw

Modern day life observed through the eyes of two cats and an Englishman

Allan Gilmour
Fiction

Our modern, hectic lifestyles have helped create dissatisfaction, illness and disassociation with our true selves.
Although they are often puzzled by the human races actions and therefore, are incapable of knowing everything about the human world, through intense observations, Mr Midnight and Sir Winston thought it apt to lend a helping paw to perhaps put the modern individual back on track.
They attempt to open the eyes of the modern individual to the important things in life; namely, to not take oneself too seriously and to enjoy what life has to offer that much more.

Mr Midnight and Sir Winston are very much aware of how much the human race loves cats. They also feel that, just like cats themselves, humans are also rather vain but inquisitive creatures who love adventure, exploration and self-discovery. These cats have a message to send the world. Their wisdom knows no bounds. They’ve been watching us for a while, observing our ways and evaluating our lives. They don’t always like what they see, but they’re quick to offer friendly advice.

The messages of their short vignettes are enriching, enlightening, challenging and life affirming in equal measure. They deal with facing fears, embracing diversity, finding your own truths, getting back in touch with yourself and taking control of your destiny. Ultimately, the most important message they bring is one of love and hope.

An inspirational journey down the fascinating path of life, A Helping Paw is a series of interconnected short stories which take the reader on an entertaining, often humorous journey through modern life as observed through the eyes of two cats and an Englishman.
