T-13: Books


Bully Bully
Click on image to bigify.

I like to read about cats and other animals so we have a number of animal related books in our house. I usually have to have Bean help me look at them because they are very big books and hard to handle with my paws.

Here are 13 of them:

1. The Silent Miaow translated from the feline by Paul Gallico with pictures by Suzanne Szasz. This is a classic, every cat should read this book.

2. The Complete Encyclopedia of Cats by Esther J.J. Verhoef-Verhallen.

3. The Complete Encyclopedia of Horses and Ponies by Tamsin Pickeral. Because you never know when a Shetland might follow me home and want to stay.

4. The Legacy of the Cat by Gloria Stephens.

5. The Legacy of the Dog by Tetsu Yamazaki.

6. Cats, An Owner's Guide by Carla Atkins. Despite the title, it really a very good book.

7. Tiger! by Simon Barnes

8. Great Cats - Majestic Creatures of the Wild. Dr. John Seidensticker and Dr. Susan Lumpkin Consulting Editors.

9. The Complete Book of the Cat by Angela Sayer.

10. The art of being a Wolf by Anne Menatory.

11. The Book of the Bulldog by Joan McDonald Brearley.

12: CatCalendar Cats by B. Kliban.

And finally....

The Book of the Cute Cat

13. The best selling Book of the Cute Cat, by ME!

We read The Silent Miaow. I agree, a classic!

I think I like that last book best. ;)

Sunny's Mommy said...

The last one is definitely the best one!

i'd recommend the memoir, 'waiting for my cats to die,' by stacy horn. very well written, insightful, sad and funny.

Ana said...

You have got a great collection of books! You must be a very smart cat after reading all of them!

Gretchen said...

Your site is looking pretty good.
My house is filled with a lot of books about animals, too, and some of them are about cats.
