Scrapbooking has gone to the cats! It’s a Cat’s Life is an interactive book that chronicles the life of your cat, from personality to behavior, background to medical history, memories of special times, and everything in between.
This beautifully designed book is organized in a three-ring binder, which includes pages to write about your personal journey with your cat. There are places to insert photos of your cat, list favorite foods and activities, and more. There are sections for cat sitters and veterinarians. The cover features a slot to place a favorite photo of your special cat. Think baby book, but for cats.
The book is narrated by Howie, The World’s Greatest Kitty (although I’m sure any of us would argue that our cats are the world’s greatest!), who found the human behind the book, L’Ann Bingham, when he was just 5 weeks old. They spent the next 13 years together. L’Ann wanted to create something that honored her special bond with Howie, and that would allow others to do the same for their cats.
One thing that struck me as I was leafing through some of the sections about favorite activities and unique behaviors was how quickly we tend to forget these things. After my first cat, Feebee, died twelve years ago, I spent a lot of time writing down every single thing I could remember about him. A decade later, I’m glad I did, because reading through what I wrote then brings a lot of smiles now at some of the quirky things he did that I had forgotten. This book would be a great way to record these special moments in your cat’s life as they happen.
In an age of digital photography, this charmingly illustrated keepsake is a lovely way to capture memories in a more tangible way.
