Yes, there really is a "What I learned from the cat" book despite the fact that this book cover site shows the cover for "What I learned from the dog." I have not read the whole book, but what I have read makes me want to read more. Many don't think of cats as teachers, but clearly there are lessons to be learned from all animals.
There are a few stories where, for humor sake, the cats are described more in human terms than as cats, but it gets the point across. The authors still learned something from the cats.
Most stories include the close relationship with cats, the heartwarming moments, as well the lessons. Saved by a Stray clearly shows the saving grace of a cat's love, a love "cat people" will recognize even if they lived easier lives than the girl in that story.
Like other Chicken Soup for the Soul books, these are uplifting stories with a variety of emotions and themes -- a little something for every mood.
Any cat lover will love this book and recognize the attitudes and amusing behaviors of our purry friends.
