Celebrate the wonder of cats in The Little Big Book of Cats, Welcome’s newest addition to the award-winning Little Big Book series. Cats are our best friends, our cleanest roommates, and our constant companions. Who else in our lives could be so loving and then turn so insolent, be so attentive and then so indifferent, and still win our hearts? Through their own shifting personas and emotions, cats continue to teach us more about ourselves than we could ever imagine. Without them we’d be lost. Without us, well, they’d probably be just fine.
The Little Big Book of Cats is a delightful treasury of stories, poems, fun activities, recipes, advice, tips, fun, and humor to indulge all cat-lovers. With the turn of each page, readers learn how to better understand, train (well, sort of), and pamper their feline friends with fun activities and treats, while literary excerpts, writings, and poetry from the brightest of cat-loving minds share the joys, awe, and challenges of befriending a cat (or two, or three, or four…). This purr-fect book includes:
Literary Excerpts and Stories: Renowned writers who love or have been fascinated by the cat seem endless: Lewis Carroll, Colette, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Alice Adams, Emile Zola, and Rainer Maria Rilke, among others. Fiction or non-fiction, each selection is as enchanting as its subject.
Living with Cats: For those just starting out on their new journey with a furry friend, basic information is provided from cat breeds to general cat care (from bathing your cat to giving kitty a massage!).
Poetry: There are so many odes in honor of beloved feline friends. Cat-lovers know why. In these pages are the best from greats such as Emily Dickinson, T. S. Eliot, Pablo Neruda, and W. B. Yeats.
Training and Tricks: Is it possible? Clicker training cats has gained much popularity in the past years. Give it a try!
Fun and Games: Kibble Dribble, Macaroni Hockey, Stair Bounce . . . keep Kitty on her toes with fun and games sure to amuse all involved.
Kitty Treats: Sardine Sandies, Catnip Snaps, Cheesy Bites and more are guaranteed to elicit satisfied purrs.
Feline Funnies: The other side of our regal, mysterious, and elegant friend is pure silliness. Enjoy the loveable, funny side of cat with pages of jokes, humor, and feline shenanigans.
