Seven Cats and the Art of Living Reviews
My hardback was falling apart. Got this in paperback. A keeper!
As you can tell from my review title, I loved this book! I found it joyful and sweet. Each story has a true to life meaning that is not only true for the cat world, but for us humans as well. I enjoyed Jo's thoughtfulness and insight. I would definately recommend this book to others!
delivers and I highly recommend the book and any other books by jo coudert especially advice from a failure********excellenr
Simply read it and you'll understand the rating. What's good is what happens every day. And if you like this, read "Advice From a Failure" next.
This is a gentle book, an easy read. Cat lovers will recognize the endless antics, distinct personalities, and uncompromisingly self-seeking behavior of these always amusing companions. The author describes the often devious methods that her cats have used in insisting that they will live with her in spite of her protestations, and she focuses on the unique qualities of each animal.
A lovely tale of a life with animals and what they can teach us. I don't understand the one-star review; what I got from Poppy's story was that it was sad, not that the cat was to blame for seeing the world as she did. Yes, the author does write about cats "thinking," but who's to know that they don't? Some profound insights and inspiration for change.
The author likes only the cats that behave according to her 'rules'. She blames the cats if they develop normal behaviors in reaction to the way they are treated. She expects them to be logical and to be able to 'reason'. When one cat hides much of the time as a result of being mistreated, the author says the cat should be more trusting and willing to take risks because the bad treatment is in the past. This is ridiculous. If you love cats, I don't think you'll like this book.
