Cat Tales: True Stories of Kindness and Companionship with Kitties Review
Cat Tales: True Stories is a small book that is made to be easy to handle. It is 160 pages long, but at least half those pages are purrfect pictures of pussycats. The layout is one that cat lovers everywhere can appreciate. Cats are sorted into groups such as “Awesome”, “Caring”, “Adventurous”, “Hardworking” and “Curious”. It’s definitely a book that appreciates the awesomeness of our resident felines. You will also find some of these cats mentioned in 125 Pet Rescues.
One of the sections involved is “Just for Fun” which includes some information I’d never heard about and that did, indeed, make me grin. Such as cat mail! Another is “Ask an Expert” and the questions they chose to ask and answer were definitely interesting. It is also filled with tips and tricks on being a good owner. (Includes things like recognizing what a cat’s body language is saying, and providing them the stimulation or lack of that they need.) Cat Tales: True Stories is cute and informative!
The piece on celebrity cats will contain some very familiar faces. However, this book isn’t all about the widely famous cats, but instead about the cats that stand out in other ways. Some are super travelers, some are life savers, and some are just plain awesome in other ways.
This is a book that both kids and adults can enjoy. I loved looking through it. The person it was truly a hit with, though, was my child. She has read the book at least 4 times since we received it. Every time through, she giggles and points out her favorite cats and reads what she thinks are the coolest parts out loud to me. At this point, the book is an old friend for her that she’ll never get rid of.
Cat Tales: True Stories of Kindness and Companionship with Kitties is a great book.
