by Suzy Becker.
First of all I have to put my hand up to receiving a review copy of this book.
“All I Needed to Know I Learned From My Cat (And Then Some)” is an updated and extended edition of a best seller ( 2 million copies sold no less!)
This is a small but cute book. A cat book, but not one that you reference if you want advice on grooming your feline or to find out just how many hairballs a cat can cough up.
It also is not a book full of fabulous photos of prize winning Persians and best of breed Siamese.
This is a book that you can turn to when you need cheering up. It is packed full of wit and wisdom as dispensed by a cat.
The cat in question is Binky a rather self satisfied looking white cat.
Binky, the cat character, is based on Suzy Becker's first cat (1986-2005) who she adopted from the Boston Animal Rescue League.
The cartoons throughout this book are simply drawn but the cat character is full of wicked expression. . . and wickedly witty wisdom!
“Challenge Yourself!” Says Binky as she performs acrobatics to drink from the toilet. “Feel No Guilt” Exclaims the cat sitting amidst the aftermath of the havoc she's caused. “Wake Up Before The Alarm Clock” Binky makes sure that everyone else does too!
Not a book to produce belly laughs but many, many chuckles.
Would a cat lover enjoy receiving All I Needed to Know I Learned From My Cat (And Then Some) as a gift? You bet they would.
Anyone who has ever shared their life with a cat will relate to Binky from the word go.
Even if a cat lover has the original edition of this book (simply called All I Needed to Know I Learned From My Cat ) they will still be as pleased as punch to receive this new extended version
The new edition has 48 new pages, including a neat Are You a Cat Person? Quiz. With the quiz you get to find out if you are indeed a Cat Person or a out and out Cat Fanatic by answering questions like - “You Don't Notice The Cat Hairs on Your Clothes” and selecting from the answers, Sometimes, Always, Never.
I honestly don't know how a cat person could fail to love this little book, unless the cat has run off with their funny bone! You really can learn all you need to know from your cat, and then some.
