I love cats, but don't like cat books: the funny parts aren't that funny, the sentimental parts are way too sentimental, and the illustrations are often too cutesy for even the worst kind of children's book. I made an exception in the case of "Lost Cat," however, because: 1) it was recommended by...

This took about an hour to read and as a potential crazy cat lady myself, I'll admit, I laughed, I cried and nodded along emphatically to pretty much everything Caroline said. The story was a bit of fun, the drawings were cute and the actual photos of GPS map tracks and kittycam footage were pret...

This little book is the cat's meow!
CAUTION: If you are not a kitty person, this book may turn you into one! Catnip for humans! Even without the cat, I'm a sucker for tiny, quirky books and adorable pen and watercolor drawings. Around 175 pages, the book is a quick read yet just right. The reader...

If you love a cat, might love a cat someday, or just plain like cats you will enjoy this quick easy read. Whimsical illustrations are a bonus. There are laughs, there are tears.

Being a cat owner (or slave - same difference) from the past year, and having anxiety issues every time I leave my cat to go somewhere, I thought I would enjoy this book. I did, but not as much as I had hoped.
My cat, Loki, is an indoor-only cat. He came to us (my husband and me) when he was very...

I’m a cat lover. I’m currently wearing a necklace of a cat. I have owned dozens of cats in my life, and I’m only 30.It’s painful for me to think of the thousands of dollars I spent in the last couple of years on my now deceased geriatric feline. This book was an absolute perfect fit for me (I bet...
