The Best Gift Book for Cat Lovers
George Foster — Laugh out loud, a lot!
The best funny stuff, over and over. A great one-liner or an essay, whatever you’re in the mood for. I don’t normally laugh out loud reading a book so this is special.
Robert Edgeworth — More than a great gift.
I bought this as a gift, but when it arrived, I started to glance through it. I liked it so much that I decided to keep it for myself. Don’t blame me. They liked the salt lamp I gave them instead.
You don’t have to like cats to like the book. You only need to like humor. It is a thick book, full of all variety of humor about cats, and it goes way beyond the standard, “Dogs make us proud, and cats make us humble” stuff. That would get old, but this book doesn’t. I love it, and highly recommend.
Secret — A cat owner’s guide to survival.
As an owner of two cats I know firsthand the only way to survive their antics is to laugh. This book captures the laughs (and tears) of cats through a great chorus of voices. Our copy travels from the coffee table to the car to the kitchen counter (and, I dare say, the bathroom) . . . maybe it’s the cats? Or maybe we just can’t put it down. Highly recommended (by our cats and our family).
Linda Egenes — A perfect gift for cat lovers.
As this books says, ”As every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat.” So true, yet, we love our cats. The Pearson brothers have captured the wisdom and humor of being a cat lover, which makes this a great gift for anyone who is fortunate enough to own a cat. Contains laugh-out-loud anecdotes and quotes from Dave Barry, Ellen DeGeneres, the New Yorker, and much more. Loved the Twitter posts from ordinary folks too.

Very funny. Think I met every cat I ever knew in this collection. And all of those who couldn’t have cared less that I sought their acquaintance. Brilliant. Catnip for cat keepers.
Flying Tiger — Funny.
Totally hilarious book.
Brad Moses — For anyone who just wants to feel better.
First off – I’m allergic to cats. I am fascinated by them – from the cuddliest tiniest house cat to the the largest predatory tiger — but still, I am allergic to them. On the rare occasions when I’ve pet a cat and become lost in their affection, beauty, grace, purring and instant loving bonding, I’ve eventually had to leave this beautiful space and go wash my hands quickly before I unconsciously touch my eyes or rub my nose.
A friend gave me this book and I started skimming through it several days afterwards wondering how I’d find the time to read it. I soon found myself becoming lost in the fascinating stories and humorous quotes and poems from so many cat lovers and owners.
This is a must read for anyone who just wants to feel better. It’s not a real substitute for actually having a cat — but from my allergy imposed hands off perspective, it is a wonderful substitute. BUT – beware. If allergic, you may find yourself thinking about allergy medication and acquiring a cat as you read on. Good luck.
Jeffrey Moses — For cat lovers.
Being more of a dog person myself (having grown up with a rather imperious German Shepard in charge of our household), I wasn’t sure how I’d take to this book, which from the first page on is quite clearly dedicated to cat lovers. No worries, the book is clever, humorous, and even sincerely moving in sections. I cannot imagine anyone with a cat or two or three or more in the house not loving every page of this book.
