The Zen of Max is a memoir of an ordinary cat with extraordinary wisdom, love, and compassion as well as a few quirks. The Zen of Max will: * touch your heart * make you laugh * and offer many valuable lessons along the way

We finks u should get a copy of dis book (and not just cause it looks like ma butt on da cover...MOL)

Homer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned about Love and Life with a Blind Wonder CatHomer's Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, or How I Learned about Love and Life with a Blind Wonder Cat 

Everyone warned that Homer would always be an "underachiever," never as playful or independent as other cats. But the kitten nobody believed in quickly grew into a three-pound dynamo, a tiny daredevil with a giant heart who eagerly made friends with every human who crossed his path. Homer scaled seven-foot bookcases with ease and leapt five feet into the air to catch flies in mid-buzz. He survived being trapped alone for days after 9/11 in an apartment near the World Trade Center, and even saved Gwen’s life when he chased off an intruder who broke into their home in the middle of the night.

But it was Homer’s unswerving loyalty, his infinite capacity for love, and his joy in the face of all obstacles that inspired Gwen daily and transformed her life. And by the time she met the man she would marry, she realized Homer had taught her the most important lesson of all: Love isn’t something you see with your eyes.

Homer’s Odyssey is the once-in-a-lifetime story of an extraordinary cat and his human companion. It celebrates the refusal to accept limits—on love, ability, or hope against overwhelming odds. By turns jubilant and moving, it’s a memoir for anybody who’s ever fallen completely and helplessly in love with a pet.

We lubbed dis book and now we lub Homer and u will too!

Dear Sparkle: Cat-to-Cat Advice from the world's foremost feline columnist
Dear Sparkle: Cat-to-Cat Advice from the world's foremost feline columnist

Sage advice straight from the mouth of the world's most pointed puss!
• My human is moving in with her boyfriend, so we'll have to leave our apartment and my perfect birdwatching perch. I need to know how to get rid of him!
• Our pet sitter smells weird. Is there any way to make her less stinky?
• My humans like to sleep when it's obviously the best time to play! Have any ideas for how to wake them up?

Face it, felines, your humans can't help you untangle your problems — especially when they're usually the ones driving you crazy! Never fear, the world's foremost feline authority Sparkle the Cat is here to solve all of your kitty conundrums. Sparkle can relate to you and your furry friends and offers insight laced with tough love.

With 70 Q&As, "Sparkle Says" sidebars, and full-color photos throughout, this guide is definitely NOT your usual human-written cat book.

Whether you're a confused kitty who doesn't understand why you're supposed to stay off the couch, a cat who's furious because the new puppy ate your catnip stash, or a freaked-out feral who wants to return to the wild, Sparkle has the wise — and often hilarious — answers for your woes.
To be honest I not read dis yet but it in da queue. But Sparkle's ma pal and we sure it gonna be great.

While people will buy this book because it’s so darn cute, smart cats know that it’s chock full of must-know information to make their lives even more pleasant than it already is. That’s because Quasi—a white-furred Tom who’s 18 punchin’ pounds of fabulous feline—reveals special secrets to his fellow couch clawers: how to look irresistibly cute, successfully get food anytime, hide when they don’t feel like coming in, and wake up their peacefully sleeping humans very early in the morning. There’s even a list of great places to…umm “get rid” of those annoying hairballs. That sound you hear? It’s paws applauding!
OMC dis iz a pawsum handbook fur kittehs and ur humanz will find it funny too.

This book presents a kitten's memoirs about a family of cats learning to earn their own money to buy their own food. The story is suitable for children and adults.

Da piksures and story in dis book r wunnerful. Iffen u r friends wif @CheshireK (and even iffen ur not) u will want to get dis book.

The World Is Still Your Litter Box

The World Is Still Your Litter Box

Another cute cat book, you say? Look closer. In fact, The World Is STILL Your Litter Box is a how-to manual FOR cats, written by one of their own (Quasi), and loaded with information to help make a cat's life even more pleasant, entertaining and enjoyable. Like Quasi's first book, The World Is Your Litter Box, The World Is STILL Your Litter Box is edgy, laugh-out-loud funny, loaded with cat attitude, and underscored by the combative, yet loving relationship between Quasi and his human, Steve. The World Is STILL Your Litter Box is a must-have for all cats and the humans who love them.

Excerpt: One night, as my aging dogs, Tink and Sixx, smugly watched me clean out their litter box, I swore to the good Lord that once they passed, I would no longer have house dogs. Maybe a small dog? It was storming outside, and just as I made my claim, there was a bright flash of lightning accompanied by a deafening crack of thunderĂ¢€¦which was followed by a sweet meow coming from outside my back screen door. Really. Funny. Callie joined our family that day and has followed me around like a puppy ever since! When I feel overwhelmed, Callie comforts me and reminds me that I was there for her during the storm; I will be rescued someday, too. I will never be without dogs: Thanks for the reminder! -Kat Talamantes
