By Celia Haddon

  • Paperback
  • £3.99

Purrfect ways to understand the meaning of your inner kittenhood and humans, ­ the dysfunctional species that stifle your inner kitten joy.

Purrfect ways to understand the meaning of your inner kittenhood and humans, ­ the dysfunctional species that stifle your inner kitten joy.

Finding your inner kitten is about finding serenity and peace. It's never too late, at any age, to have a happy kittenhood. The secret of this lies in your ability to integrate and transform your experiences with an inferior species, humans.

Stop relying on humans to fulfill your physical, emotional and inner-kitten needs. You must take responsibility for your own welfare.

Humans are emotionally inadequate. They cannot understand the purradigm of the cat-human partnership. Humans expect lifelong loyalty and love, failing to understand that this is the human part of the relationship. Their inevitable disappointment warps the relationship.

Bowls of food are no substitute for proper hunting. The hard wired instinct to eye, stalk, pounce, tear off feathers and eat prey is unused and the inner kitten is unfulfilled.

Catnip mice are no substitute for real mice. Humans enjoy playing with them. We cats do not recognise them as mice though we will occasionally join in this silly human game ­ out of sheer good manners.

Don't miss Celia Haddon's new book, 100 Ways to Be More Like Your Cat, a guide on how to improve your life by learning from your cat.

What Your Cat Is Thinking

Bo Söderström
Authors:
Bo Söderström

How perceptive are cats to the good (or bad) behaviour of humans? How do they differ from breed to breed? Are some left handed and some right-handed? How can you tell if your pet is lonely? And just how similar is your cat to a tiger? In WHAT YOUR CAT IS THINKING the researcher, biologist and author Bo Söderström weaves together fascinating facts we're only just learning about man's best friends, with highly practical tips to help us better understand and care for the animals in our life. Research on cat and dog behaviour, and the complicated psychology which influences their responses and needs has formally exploded in the 21st century, with fascinating new knowledge gained every day. Bo Söderström has an iron grip on all the cutting edge research to match the most determined cat's hold on his favourite catnip toy, and here he presents the most interesting results in an easy-to-understand way. Learn about the interaction between man and pet, understand your cat's mysterious signals, immerse yourself in those earliest moments, and gain the ability to stare into your animal's eyes and think 'I get you'.

'The slackers guide to staying in, the antidote to peak frazzle and spending too much time out on the razzle. It's time to tune in to being cosy, because tucking up inside with the ones you love is all that matters.' Laura Weir There seems to be a lot to worry about in the world right now, with Brexit looming, social media draining our time and anxiety on the rise, the public are seeking out value in the small things which are close to home that can bring us maximum simple joy in our daily lives. In this hug of a book, Laura Weir celebrates the very best of our cool and quirky traditions and habits and rituals with a big dose of comfort - think warm cups of tea, toasty open fires and windswept walks that will blow away the cobwebs. Cosy gives readers permission to batten down the hatches and switch off - it is an ode to tucking in, hunkering down and softening life's edges when we need it most.Includes illustrations by Rose Electra Harris, as well as cosy contributions from the likes of Dolly Alderton, Alice Temperley and Christoper Kane. 'A warm, generous, blanket of a book, to reach for whenever you need a dose of comfort.' Sophie Dahl'As someone who has spent the majority of their adult life hunkered down in a big jumper, dodging reasons to leave the house, Cosy is the official justification for not going out.' Alice Levine

Zachary Auburn
Authors:
Zachary Auburn

Long gone are the good old days when a cat's biggest worries were mean dogs or a bath. Modern cats must confront satanists, online predators, the possibility of needing to survive in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, and countless other threats to their nine lives.For over four decades, the American Association of Patriots have stood at the vanguard of our country's defense by helping to prepare our nation's cat owners for the difficult conversations they dread having with their pets. Written in a simple Q&A format, HOW TO TALK TO YOUR CAT ABOUT GUN SAFETY answers crucial questions such as, 'What is the right age to talk to my cat about the proper use of firearms?' and 'What are the benefits of my cat living a lifestyle of abstinence?' and especially 'Why does my cat need to use the internet? Can't he just play with yarn like cats used to do?'America - and our cats - stand at a precipice. It will take courage, and it will take hard work, but armed with the knowledge within these pages, we can make our cats - and America - great again!
