Favorite nonfiction cat book?

Hi all,

I recently read Cat Sense by John Bradshaw, and I adored it. It was fascinating to learn the natural history of cats, and to find out why Reese has some of the behaviors she does.

What's your favorite book about cats? Also, are there any nonfiction cat books you'd recommend for young readers?

I recommend The Good, The Bad, and The Furry by Tom Cox. It's written about the author's life and his humorous cats. I enjoyed it a lot!

I recently read Cat Daddy by Jackson Galaxy. It was a decent read more about Jacksons journey in life to become the cat man he is. Also has cat tips through out the book. May not be suitable for younger readers since it contains information about Jacksons struggles with food and drug abuse.

Cats are awesome special friends my cats are Oliver Whizzer Bull and Tarot

That sounds great. Sounds like a book I could definitely get into. Thanks for letting me know about it!

I really liked (and recommend) Cat vs Cat by Pam Johnson Bennett, for people attempting to integrate and find peace in multi-cat households.

In terms of the nonfiction "feel good" cat stories (like what Marley and Me is to dogs), I highly recommend A Snowflake in My Hand by Samantha Mooney and Cleo by Helen Brown.

I loved "The Good the Bad and the Furry" as well. In part becasue it wasn't preachy ion tone which so many are.
