Unleashed! Book Corner: The Cat Lover's Book of Days
This book by Peg Silloway (URSA Books, 2010) is for everyone who has ever loved and been loved (owned) by a cat, whether purebred or pound-found. Each page represents a day in the life of cats—the unique names we give them (or they choose for themselves), the famous people who have hosted them, and their place in history, myth, and magic. There are also many extras sprinkled like bits of catnip throughout this book to provide warmth, affection, and laughter.
A highlight in the book is a cat owner who said her favorite feline was “such a doll, such a cutie” and, therefore, named her Sucha. The historical stories provide interesting and compelling cat facts. The vivid pictures of the cats featured make the stories feel more familiar as you put a face to the names. The book is humorous, heartwarming, and unforgettable, and we at HealthyPet magazine highly recommend reading it.
