What a fun celebration of life with housecats. Gorgeous, unusual and dynamic photographs accompanied by whimsical text document the daily interactions between housecats and their people. The author has focused on his cats, but they are so like my cats that he has truly struck a universal chord. From eating to sleeping to playing to sunning themselves, this book celebrates our favorite things about our feline friends. A delightful gift for cat lovers.
Every kitten should come equiped with this book. If you don't like it, you ought to consult a physician. A no-BS, colorful, I-wanna-kittie book, we loved every page. But then...ours is a multi cat home with house cats, barn cats, in-the-studio cats and even yard cats. So maybe I'm a bit too subjective, waddya think?It's not brain surgery, it is just plain cute. Right now I am ordering six more copies to send to friends and family. No kidding.
When I first read The Cat's House by Bob Walker, which I found marvellous, I though no other book could be made in a similar manner. When I recently read his second book, Cats into Everything, I simply found it so close to everyone who has got cats and really love them, that I even got touched by some of the narrative. Under my point of view, the book is a personal tribute to their beloved cats, specially to TomCat who really touched me deeply without knowing him personally. Great book that keeps very much its presentation and pictures which show the everyday live of home cats. I do not regret having read it.
What a joyful experience! I just picked up a copy yesterday and have read it twice and I'm sure I will do so again and again! Having had cats all my life AND being an artist, i not only appreciated and related to the wonderful antics of their cats but was visually treated to the wonderful color and collecion in their home. These cats live in heaven, I hope they know it! I have had many including El Gaton, Miss Genesis Claire Littlecat, Mazeltov, Meshuginah and Sir Basil. Now my life is shared with Princess Persephone and Countess Cassandra, two little special treasures. I have vaulted ceilings and louvred doors in open top closets. They scale these doors, run across the beams and jump onto my bed. They would surely think your home was the cat amusement park of all time.!Thank you for sharing your story with the rest of the world!
I found this book extremely fun to read. I think anyone with a cat can relate to the stories and pictures. The clever photography gives insight into many aspects of the our pets and while each cat has an individual personality they do share some common traits which this book illustrates wonderfully. I particularly liked the series of photos showing how the cats' sleeping arrangements change throughout the night. I was also very touched by the sections mentioning cats who had passed away. I only have 3 cats, but this book certainly helped me appreciate them even more for the special creatures they are. Bob and Frances' cats are very lucky to live in such a wonderful environment! I hope there is another book in the future.
This is another book by the authors of the Cat House. This is their story of how they live with the felines who run their home. It's both funny, touching, silly and amazing to what lengths they go to keep their furry brood happy. I can only say that they've exceeded my efforts, but only just. Best wishes to them and to the felines blessed to share their 9 lives with them.
It is the most accurate collection of photos of cats I've ever seen. Very cool house too!
Awesome book. Bob Walker has the best house and the coolest cats!! He is a very generous person taking care of sooo many cats!! I recommend this book to anyone who has ever owned a cat!!
