What first drew me to this book was that the cover boasted, “Answers your cat food questions.” Unfortunately, it didn’t answer my cat food questions, which were, “Why don’t they make mouse-flavored cat food?” and “How come no one has packaged crunchy cricket cat treats?”
Don’t expect everything to be neatly tied up at the end of the “Power of Three” series. It leaves you asking almost as many questions as it answers.
Multitasking is bad — but then there’s multi-catting, which is very good, if a human knows what he or she is doing. This book is a great instruction manual for humans living with multiple cats, whether that means 3 or 13.
Fate dropped Dewey Readmore Books in a library’s return book slot, but it was up to Dewey himself to make the most of his situation.
I loved the title to this book but felt the content left a little to be desired.
Here is another book by that human, Bob Lovka, who apparently believes that he can speak for us cats (and occasionally dogs, too).
The fifth book in the Warriors “Power of Three” series finally makes up for the lack of drama that plagued a good portion of the previous four. This one is jam-packed with intrigue, danger and mystery.
After spending a lot of time observing her cats (always a fine activity for humans), the author has come to the conclusion that there is a lot to learn from her feline friends. Well duh, I could have told her that.
Overall, The Power of Three series of Warriors has been slow to get moving. Once Firestar’s grandchildren were established as the protagonists of this series, each book has been based around one major adventure as the plot thickens.
If you are not familiar with Windrusher (I wasn’t before this book), he is a cat who visits with ancient feline ancestors and gods in his dreams, and like most of us, has a psychic connection with other cats and with his humans.
Sometimes the real life cat stories I read are sad because the cat dies at the end, so I liked this one right away because the cat featured here does not die, but survives after being diagnosed with breast cancer and going through chemotherapy.
So far, the Warriors “Power of Three” series has been only mildly eventful mdash; there’s been a little fighting, lives have been in peril, but as of now there are no major deaths and no cliffhangers.
I’m not sure how my human ran across this book, since seems to be published by an exceedingly small imprint. But I’m glad she found it because it has quite a bit of excellent advice about cat behavior.
I was a little surprised to discover that this book is not about me!
I’m glad to see that this author took a vacation from writing about pigs (he wrote the book on which the movie Babe was based) to focus on a much more worthy creature — us cats, of course.
Here it is in book formâ€”proof that humans are stupid beyond words! Why else would they need someone to tell them really basic stuff like cat hierarchy and territory, how to set up a litter box and the right way to set out our food?
They really should have called this book Cats for Humans, since almost without exception, humans are dummies when it comes us kitties.
Humans really are an odd bunch. While we cats (and other animals) do a pretty good job of taking care of ourselves and understanding our bodies and behaviors, humans can’t seem to make a move without a manual of some sort.
We cats are magical creatures, so it’s no surprise that so many stories about us involve magic.
Take this book, for example.
My human obligingly snatched me a copy of this the very day it became available and read it to me immediately. Frankly, I would rather have had her tossing me a twist tie instead of yammering on for hours on end, but I do have to admit that listening to the latest in the Erin Hunter Warriors series was time well spent.
We cats are natural CEOs. Think about it: we delegate all the day-to-day stuff like buying food and changing the litter box to flunkies. We spend our days dreaming up big ideas. We’re good at both catching details and seeing the bigger picture.
I believe the cats who wrote this book did so just to show off their vast knowledge, and perhaps to also put their editorially minded human to work.
