Virtual Book Tour Dates: 10/27/14 – 11/24/14

Genres: Memoir, Humor


Catnap often. Don’t be a stalker unless food is involved. Despite the
rumor, it is okay to be curious! A Cat Taught Me That is filled with
humorous advice and the wisdom of elder cats that includes information
on how to get more out of life, and how to avoid common pitfalls along
the way. Cat lovers will enjoy the adorable photographs and cute
illustrations throughout.

Celebrity cat ‘Awesome Louie’ provides insight with his gritty cat
interviews, as well as sage advice with his “Mewsings” column. Short
essays from the cat-lady author will bring smiles to the faces of
readers who have learned that “Not All That Glitters is Gold” and “To Be
Kissed By a Cat” can have unintended consequences.


“A Little Indulgence is Okay”

I’m Louie and I’ve been told I have a problem with cat treats. Of
course, a problem is in the eye of the beholder. In my eyes, loving cat
treats isn’t a problem unless I run out of them.

After I was rescued, I learned three things about my caregiver and
new best friend. First, food was readily available day or night; I would
never be hungry again. Second, I was now living in a house that was
warm and cozy; freezing outside in the winter was highly unlikely.
Third, I learned about this tasty food called “snacks”. I would come to
love it when my caregiver announced the magical words with enthusiasm –
“Kitty treats!”

When I was first introduced to this fabulous dining experience, the
flavors included turkey, beef and chicken. Eventually catnip and
dairy-flavored treats entered the scene. Once I tasted those little
nuggets of goodness, I was hooked.

I perfected the sad kitty face, which is subtle and very effective
when done properly. The trick is to look longingly at your target and
try not to blink. Raise a paw in a slightly pathetic manner towards the
treat container as the caregiver opens it – a classic move.

While my owner swears that she may check me into a clinic for cats
with food addictions, she is more purr than hiss. I know that the next
time she comes home from the pet store with kitty snacks, she’ll rattle
the bag because she knows I’m listening. I’ll come racing into the
kitchen like a furry, 16 pound bowling ball on steroids, and she’ll love
me for it. And give me treats.

Take it from me, you can never be too furry or have too many treats!
