Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Cat's Life ~Book Review & Giveaway~

Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Cat's Life
101 Stories about All the Ages and Stages of Our Feline Family Members

By: Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hanson and Jennifer Quasha
Foreword by: Wendy Diamond


From kittenhood through the twilight years, our feline companions continually bring joy, love, and laughter to the lives of their "staff." This collection of 101 new stories captures the experience of living through the natural life cycle with our cats — from the laugh-out-loud antics of kittens and tear-your-hair-out escapades of teenage cats to the more mature adult years and final stages of life. Stories cover each age and stage with all the fun, frustrations, special bonds and routines involved. The book also holds a special chapter about grieving and recovery when our feline friends leave us.

I love these Chicken Soup for the Soul Books!! They are so great to read, with all the inspirational stories. I love that you can sit down and read a few pages or the entire book depending on how much time you have. This book is great for cat lovers as it is a reminder of the joy and companionship our cats provide. This shares the love, laughs and one of a kind stories about our feline friends. In this book you will find adventures with your exuberant kitten, living through your cat's amusing and challenging "teenage" years and settling down with your senior cat.

This book may be purchased through Amazon.

Stop by Chicken Soup for the Soul's website and check out all their great books. They make Great Gifts!!

Hi, you would just love my little Pandora! She is the tiniest of my seven fur children and is systematically dominating all the bigger cats! She is dressed like a super-hero. She has a bandit mask with a black smudge on her nose (her name used to *BE* Smudge)and a black cape with a white chin and belly. She is jealous of the bigger cats who can jump up on the windowsill in the bathroom, but they are also jealous of her, because she can hide in places they have no hope of entering. If you are ever in Roswell, NM, you could come and visit. Little Kitty will greet you at the door, then Xena Princess Warrior will jump up on your shoulder and Margarita will show you the white spots on her belly~ no touching~ and Panda will climb up on your lap and purr you. Soopa will jump on the back of your chair and then leap onto your stomach and give you tender kisses. Ozzie will hide during your entire visit. He's pretty bashful due to an abusive former owner. All of my cats are rescues. Rescues are my favorite kind of cat. Over the years, I have rescued many cats and find the rescues to be loving and loyal. Too bad people aren't as loving and loyal as my kitties.

I have an indoor only beauty named Spooky and have two outdoor feral kitties that I trapped, had neutered and released. They come by daily for food. They are Casey (aka K.C. for Kitty Cat) - the mom of FIVE kittens that I caught, tamed and rehomed to indoor homes, and Spike, the dad (you can tell by looking at kittens that he's the dad)
