Almost ten years ago, a family acquaintance told us (my mom and I) that her cat Nina had given birth to some kittens, and she asked us if we wanted one. Until the day we picked the kitten, we had only had dogs. We were a dog family, but I always loved felines so I was supper excited to finally have a cat that would cuddle with me.

I still remember when we picked her up. I was wearing a sweeter and she hid on my pocket. She was tiny, then again she never did grow up to be a big cat. Thank goodness, or I would have some problems. Right this moment, I’m writing this review in my living room, with a cat sleeping on my lap.

Nala Link dos Reis, that’s the name we gave her. Nala because we love The Lion King. Link because of The Legend of Zelda, I never played the game, but at that time, when we thought she was a he, that sounded like a fun name. And dos Reis, which is my last name. Mom says she’s my baby, so it made sense to also give her a last name. I do use her full name when she’s being a meany, and she gets what I’m saying, or at least she feels the tension and that I’m mad.

You may be wondering why I’m writing this instead of just write the review. Well, I wanted for you to understand why I enjoyed the book with some background into my life. The life of a 26 year old woman that has a cuddling cat in her life.

My Review

When I saw the title of this book I got excited. I’m the kind of person that absolutely loved to learn more about animals and this book taught some things I had no idea, as well as giving me the reasons behind certain things cat do. As someone that loves feline with was a fun book to read.

In this book we are taking into the depth of cat’s behavior. A book that is definitely a conversation that you can read anytime and anyplace, in the same way one would read an article on a magazine or a academic paper.

The structure of the book is very well thought. Divided into chapters and “Cat Chats”. Both parts give us the insight of knowledge people in the topic, and facts. With cute photos of pretty cats and their guardians. And there is also the quotes at the beginning of each chapter that already open our minds, and the summary at the end with some key points in that chapter.

From bonding with cats to communication. From claws and scratching to training and grooming. From emotions and energy to therapy. Overall, I love it! It was very informative and fun.
