Review:

This review is based on a complimentary copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

“A Letter to My Cat” is filled with love letters to, well, cats.  They range from hilarious to heartbreaking, and I was going from laughing to crying every few minutes.  The letters are written from a wide range of people owned by cats, from celebrities to children to a soldier who went to great lengths to bring his feline companion home.  All are lovely and reveal the unique quirks and bonds that make cats so indispensable to those who love them.

Additionally, the photography is absolutely gorgeous and captures the personality of each subject.  As anyone who has tried to photograph a cat knows, it is difficult to capture much more than a blur or a squinty-eyed look of derision.  These photographs are true works of art worthy of being framed.

In short, cats cats cats cats cats.  What’s not to love?  I recommend this book to all but those who believe cats are the portent of evil belonging only to witches, because they are surely the only ones who will not love it.
