Purrs of Wisdom: Conscious Living, Feline Style
By Ingrid King
Wisdom comes by being teachable. This makes author Ingrid King a very wise woman indeed because not only has she learned lots from us kitties — she shares her lessons with other humans! If you read her book, Buckley’s Story, or follow her blog, The Conscious Cat, you already have benefitted from the lessons Ms. King’s cats have taught her. Now, with Purrs of Wisdom, she has gathered some of the most valuable feline lessons and offered them to human readers in need of our vast stores of knowledge. Are you working too hard? Not getting enough sleep? Feeling anxious? You know a kitty would never let that happen to herself, and here you will find tips on how to cope. Don’t worry — the advice is not too feline-centric to be useful for humans (the chapter on purging, for example, is about clearing out clutter, not hairballs). But even though these lessons are translated for biped use (cats don’t need to be reminded to breathe or enjoy some fresh air; humans do), Ms. King gives us cats props in many different ways. She features her cats, past and present, throughout the book and explains how living with kitties can help humans de-stress, stay healthy and relax. Want to live an authentic life? Watch your own cat and learn — and give this book a read.
