Purry Logic a Cat Lover’s Book Review
Yes, it is true…dogs have owners and cats have staff. Dogs are taken for walks by their owners, play fetch and usually come when they are called. Cats…well, I can tell you from experience that they don’t like leases and do not like to go on walks (it’s a long story and I’ll share it sometime soon). Cats also do not fetch – it is quite beneath them to act in such a way and the only time my cat, Duchess, comes when I call is because she feels like getting up to stretch. Still, I adore the little fur ball and would have it no other way.
Being that I am a cat lover, I threw my name in the hat to evaluate a new humorous cattitude book and was not disappointed. Jane Seabrook’s new addition to the popular Furry Logic books, Purry Logic, is filled with wry witticisms to perk up even the most finicky cat lovers. I shared my delight with Duchess, who obviously was a thrilled as me.
As I was reading through the pages, relating to several cattiudes Duchess exhibits, my husband was at a loss as to why I would find a “cat” book so interesting. You see, he is not too fond of cats, but has established a “don’t touch me and you can live here” policy with Duchess. I just know Duchess understands this and purposely goes out of her way to try to rub up against his pant leg. It’s hilarious to watch her saunter over, get into position to rub and he’ll move his leg causing her to almost fall over for which he’ll receive an indignant look.
The one rule that she does not break, at least when we aren’t home, is entering our room and sleeping on our bed. My husband has established that as his domain and Duchess is not to enter it. So when I read the page in Purry Logic that simply stated “Who’s in control of this bed?” I just started laughing.
One of my other favorites is…”If I like it, it’s mine. If I saw it first, it’s mine. If it’s in my paws, it’s mine. If it was already dead, it’s yours.”
Purry Logic is an adorable book for all ages (just ask my 10 yo son) with the pages coming to life with Jane Seabrook’s very talented paintings of 20 different types of cat breeds, which are listed in the back of the book as well. The original paintings are also available for sale at Purry Logic.com.
With the holiday season upon us, this would be a wonderful gift to someone wild about cats. Purry Logic retails for $9.95 at Ten Speed Press.
