How to Think Like a Cat Reviews
This book is a collection of quotes and very short essays that illuminate cat behaviors as a way of guiding humans toward better behaviors. Several dozen feline attributes are explored, for example in areas of confidence, serenity and self-care. It’s light, with lots of white space on the pages. But it’s not silly or as *slight* in content as I’d expected. The best part is the “cat quotient” quiz at the end, where readers learn whether they’re at the kitten or mature-cat stage ... or in such need of a role model that they should adopt a cat!
This book is an easy read, and it is well written. I found it a bit interesting to see a comparison of 'human care' done the way cats would do it, but overall by the second half of the book, I felt that I was wasting my time.
I got this book for the cat lover in my life but ended up reading it myself.
You don't need to be a cat lover to appreciate the insights in this book, but it's lovely if you are! Stephane Garnier integrates the life patterns and behaviors of Ziggy (and other cats) into reminders of Living Life. It has a touch of humor and some real reminders of caring for the self. E.g., In the chapter "Your Cat Knows How to Take the Time to Live : Taking the time to live means knowing how to fully take advantage of life, and not seeking to accumulate everything you 'should' does/visit in a minutely minute schedule.... Copy your cat and take the time to live" ; in another " Choose , as your cat does... Stop putting up with morons, choose your company, choose your friends". I adored the way he describes living life as a cat, taking those lessons and reminders of appreciating the world and your life. I got this book from Goodreads for an honest open review.
Sounds crazy, but I think she's got something here.
This is a delightfully charming little book that only takes about an hour to read. I'd love to see this made into a decorative hardcover because it would be a lovely little gift. There is some wisdom, a bit of cat humor and a lot of areas where any reader who is stressed, overworked, tired or simply lacking in self compassion will recognize along with tips and small tidbits of attitude and orientation gleaned from living with a feline.
I'm so excited tat someone wrote a book to go with the vague thoughts I've often had while watching our cat.
This book was full of simple but useful advice. It also had an fantastic format that made it easy to read and kept it interesting. It had short chapters and little food for thought and quotes spread throughout. I enjoyed reading it and I will keep it in our office's visitor area so others can enjoy it too.
