As those of you who’ve been following me for a while know, reading is as essential as breathing to me. When I read a book that I find educational, inspirational, helpful, moving, interesting, or just plain fun, I want to share it with everyone. I thought it might be fun to periodically introduce and review some of my favorites here.
Today’s book is The Feline Mystique: On the Mysterious Connection Between Women and Cats by Clea Simon.
This is one of my favorite cat books. It’s a book for cat lovers. It’s a book for women who love their cats. And it’s a book for men who love women who love their cats.
Author Clea Simon examines the bond between cats and women from all angles – from history and mythology to interviews with cat women from all walks of life, the book is a compelling mix of facts about cats and the women who love them. It’s also a memoir of the seventeen years Simon spent with Cyrus, the kitten she adopted as a young single woman.
This is a joyful book, celebrating the role cats play in womens’ lives. If you are a woman who loves cats, or if you want to better understand a woman who loves cats, you will enjoy this book.
