Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover's Soul

Stories of Feline Affection, Mystery and Charm
By Jack Canfield

This collection of 90 short stories about cats is alternately funny and touching. There are many different felines in its pages: pampered pedigree cats, adored children's pets, tough alley cats, resourceful barn cats, healing therapy cats. The brief tales are written by lifelong cat lovers, and people who never had a cat before. They look at all kinds of roles that cats hold in our lives, traditional and unexpected. My favorite stories were of the cat who brought his mistress flowers, the cat who got his head stuck in a garbage disposal, the kitten who sat on a fax machine and answered phones, the black jellybean cats, the cat who had a pet lobster, and the duo who would not tolerate closed bathroom doors. I laughed a lot. Great light reading for any kitty lover.
