My Friend, the Cat traces the ten year relationship between its author and a very adventursome feline named Chesterson, following the pair through their first apartment, a crappy East Village monstrosity with sloping floors and cockroaches, where, during hot summers, kitty was placed in the refrigerator to keep cool, to wintertime road trips where we learn that cats can, indeed, drive a station wagon, straight through to the furry ones cold-blooded attacks upon sleeping, bare feet. My Friend, the Cat debuted off-Broadway in February 2007 at The Laurie Beechman Theatre.
Poignant and laugh out loud funny Clever wit and a flare for silliness and human kindness.
John Hoglund, Theatrescene.net
The funny, entertaining and very touching story of a boy who becomes a man while spending less than a dozen years with a very wise (and clever) feline partner.
Stu Hamstra, Cabaret Hotline Online
Anyone who has ever loved a pet or cherished a friend will recognize something in the relationship between Bond and Chesterson Bonds anecdotes about his ten years with Chesterson are sweet, funny and endearing.
