To understand a cat is like trying to understand the opposite sex. It’s almost impossible. However, that said, there is more to a cat than what is perceived and the authors of “The Ultimate Cat Lover” are out to prove it. The book, a compilation of incredible experiential stories from contributors, gives us an inside look into the lives of a cat. The stories are touching and heart-felt. They bring joy to a cat lover and give a deeper understanding to someone reluctant to like a cat.
But, there is more. “The Ultimate Cat Lover” is part of a series and gives the reader many “must-know” answers. Compiled from years of questions, the authors talk about things like picking out a perfect cat, activities that enrich, redirection of inappropriate scratching, and also a glimpse into a cat’s body language. Even if you don’t have a cat, the part on body language will capture your interest.
The bottom line about “The Ultimate Cat Lover” is that it’s a great book. I highly suggest purchasing a copy, one for yourself and one for a friend that admires cats. You will both receive a gift that will touch you.
