Spike & the Blue Chair

The writer tells the story of her family and their transition through grief and bereavement. However, the story is told through the eyes of Spike the Cat, who joins them at the start of their crisis and takes on the role of observer, protector and helper.

Spike is curious about many things, but he is especially curious about the blue chair. One day, he discovers its magic and begins to see how he can help his family by gently leading them onto its seat. He is a cat with purpose, helping his family through the ‘rubbish days’ that slowly change into new hope and fresh beginnings. He watches as they become a new blended family and learns what it means to move on with courage and love.


“For cats know what you’re thinking, they know just how you feel;

They soak up all your sadness and purr with steadfast zeal.”
