Why do we love cats? That question is posted in the cover of the beautifully illustrated book, For the Love of Cats From A to Z.
Written by Sandy Robins and illustrated and designed by mark Anderson, the book takes the readers from A to Z, and everything in-between.
The cover says Cats are funny, curious, independent and beautiful. They amaze and entertain us. Their soothing purr and loving touch calm us.
For the Love of Cats celebrates these wonderful creatures and our special relationship with them using an alphabet full of fun verses, information, and colorful illustrations. F is for finicky, but why do cats turn their noses up at their food. There’s a biological reason for this. T is for tail, and there’s a whole mode of communication through the tail.
Published in 2011 by Triumph Books, the book is a quick read, but not one that you’ll want to read and put away. It should remain out for view as a coffee table book to be shared with cat lovers over and over again. Sandy Robins generously donated a copy of the book to everyone that attended the 2011 Cat Writers Association’s Annual Conference.
In her introduction, Robins writes cats are t e best companions in the world. “So why do we love cats…what’s not to love.” And she is absolutely right. The only thing to love more than one cat, is to have two.
For those not familiar with Robins, she is an award-winning multimedia pet lifestyle expert and author of Fabulous Felines: Health and Beauty Secrets for the Pampered cat. She is a popular TV and radio guest and her work appears regularly on MSNBC.com, as well as in various magazines.
