Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Cat's Life...Review & Giveaway!

I am an animal person.  Although, we currently only have fish as pets, I grew up with dogs, hamsters and even the occasional bird.  My mother is allergic to cats so we were never able to keep one of our own but I always enjoyed the purrs from my Nana's cats (Mittens especially!).  So, despite never owning a cat myself (my husband is allergic which makes a cat out of the question now too) I still consider myself a cat lover which is why I thoroughly enjoyed Chicken Soup for the Soul:  My Cat's Life.  Here is the scoop....


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.

 This book is heartwarming read for everyone.  The stories about cats from teeny, tiny kittens to cats in their final years will make you laugh and cry and remember the furry friends in your life.  I really loved how so many of the stories focused on the cat/human relationship.  The stories included really honored the special friendships forged between cats and their human companions. As with all Chicken Soup books, I really enjoy the short essays which make it perfect for reading in the amount of time you have.  This book would make a wonderful read for all cat lovers and all the better if they are fortunate enough to have a cat curled in their lap or at their feet.  You can pick up your copy today on Amazon...
