Your Favorite Cat Books

As a cat lover and avid reader, I'm always on the lookout for great cat books I don't know yet. So which are your all-time favorites?

I enjoy the Cat Who mystery series by Lilian Jackson Braun, a series of books about a gentleman and his two siamese cats. If you are not familiar with them and wish to try them, by all means read them in order. The earlier ones are the best of the series.

Cat Stories by James Herriot stands out. There are others, perhaps I'll post tomorrow.

I just finished a new book called "Hiss And Tell: From the Files Of A Cat Shrink" by Pam Johnson-Bennett (author or Think Like A Cat). It was a great read and had me laughing hysterically!

I have a ton of cat books and I find them all good in their own ways. Some are purely educational and others are just fun to read. One of my favorite educational ones is Food Pets Die For by Ann N. Martin. It's a shocking look into the pet food industry and kind of makes you cringe once you read the ingredients in well-known pet foods.

When I was younger I read a fantastic children's book called 'Blitzcat', I'm gonna try and find it so I can read it again...it was about a cat in WWII.

I love "A Cat Named Darwin" -- about a man who wasn't much of a cat person but grew to love and respect a stray that moved into his home.

I also REALLY enjoyed "The Cat Who Went to Paris" about a man and his little silver tabby Scottish Fold who went everywhere with him, restaurants, five star hotels, summer homes, and eventually Paris...he became more of a star than his famous owner who was an author. It's a true story and very entertaining. The sequel, "A Cat Abroad" is good too, but I'd say it's less about the cat and more like a travel log of where to go and eat in Europe.
