Adult coloring books have been quite the rage for some time, and it’s a trend I can really get behind. Coloring is more than just a fun way to pass the time. Studies show that the structured, rhythmic motion of coloring eases you into a meditative state, which allows you to push negative thoughts and worries out of your mind, and which induces a profound sense of relaxation. Coloring is also a great way to explore your creativity. Spending 15 minutes coloring an image can give you a sense of having accomplished something beautiful, and that can carry over into other parts of your life.
I don’t spend nearly enough time coloring, but of all the coloring books I’ve tried, Color Cats by Margaret Gates Root, the founder of the Feline Nutrition Foundation, has remained my favorite. Earlier this year, Margaret published Color Cats Book Two: Kitty Tales, featuring twenty-five fun new drawings of cats. The drawings are presented as single-sided images in landscape view, with the binding at the top of the images, so they’re suitable for right or left-handed colorists, and there’s no binding to get in the way.
So break out your gel pens or color pencils, and start coloring. And if your kitties are anything like Allegra and Ruby, they’ll want to get in on the action.
Color Cats Book Two: KItty Tales is available from Amazon.
