After a few days of lots of heat and running around to do chores and errands, I wanted to choose a very light reading choice for my book review. Years ago a beautiful black cat who I named Inky walked into my life and changed it forever, inspiring my choice of “A Taste of Chicken Soup for the Cat Lover’s Soul”.
This little book is just 75 pages long and features an even dozen stories about cats. Two of the cats are heroes in one way or another where others feature cats with behaviors that could classify them as bothersome for at least some of the story.
The stories for the most part are upbeat, which I love in my light reading, and even those that end sadly have many happy moments throughout. It is clear that the authors truly love their cats and vice versa.
Unlike other Chicken Soup books I’ve read the last stories are as good as the first and I’d reread or perhaps even read to our baby someday almost all of them. The few I would not seemed a bit too long winded, yet that did not bring the whole book down a lot.
Rating – four baby booties out of five
