A Thousand Purring Cats: is this not the best book title ever? Imagine how amazing that would sound! And imagine how amazing you would feel if you could hear a thousand cats purring!

A Thousand Purring Cats is a beautifully illustrated children’s book that embraces the healing power of positive relationships. It’s a book about emotional healing and compassion.

The author had the idea for the book during a period of deep loss in her life when she came across research that shows that the cat’s purr has healing properties and can actually heal bones, muscles and tendons. And of course, we already know from St Francis that “a cat in your lap purring is more healing than any drug in the world, as the vibrations you are receiving are of pure love and contentment.” So if one cat can do all that, imagine what a thousand cats could do!


“…They’ll purr you full of love, love and purr you all night through, and mend unhappy parts that are deep inside of you.”

This book is a breath of fresh air in a time when there’s so much negativity all around us. I found myself smiling as I was turning the pages, remembering all the times just being around my cats made me feel better.


Even though the book is aimed at children of kindergarten age, it will be just as enjoyable for adult readers.

A Thousand Purring Cats is available from Amazon.

  1. I think we will sneak on the puter and order this for Dad. We give him lots of purrs that keep him on an even keep but a thousand Me-Wow

  2. Dear Ingrid,
    Sending gracious thanks for the splendid and thoughtful review! It is always such a pleasure to hear the reflections of other’s about this book, as it has been a labor of love for several years to write and illustrate.

  3. I just saw a horrible video on cyber bullying, the quote made me think that we all need purring cats to get through it but also how great it would be if we could be like purring cats for other people who need it.

  4. Thanks for the review! I have a nephew who loves animals, so I may get this for him as a gift. 🙂
