There are a few stories where, for humor sake, the cats are described more in human terms than as cats, but it gets the point across. The authors still learned something from the cats.
Most stories include the close relationship with cats, the heartwarming moments, as well the lessons. Saved by a Stray clearly shows the saving grace of a cat's love, a love "cat people" will recognize even if they lived easier lives than the girl in that story.
Like other Chicken Soup for the Soul books, these are uplifting stories with a variety of emotions and themes -- a little something for every mood.
Any cat lover will love this book and recognize the attitudes and amusing behaviors of our purry friends.
"What I Learned form the Cat" is so great because it opens eyes to the humor and love that comes with owning a cat - something diehard dog devotees can struggle to see. This is a wonderful book to keep on hand and give as a gift. It's hard not to enjoy the diverse tales!
As animal enthusiast and pet expert Wendy Diamond mentioned in the opening of the book, cats encourage a laziness and calmness in daily life that can be desperately needed and greatly appreciated. We should all take note and learn to find a comfy spot in the sun and enjoy a nice catnap!
When awkward at birth, personality-quirky or just "an ordinary" cat, they all deserve love and a forever home.
The hardest stories are the ones where cats need to transition by going home to Heaven over Rainbow Bridge. The main thing is to remember that their spirit always will be with us.
Cat and all animals are one of God's greatest miracles.
My husband and I would be lost if we were not animal parents.
Review is dedicated to our loving son, Ozzie, who truly makes our lives more wonderful everyday and makes our home truly blessed. We love you Ozzie.
