    One thought on “The Life and Love of Cats”

    1. This book was about as great as I expected it would be It s really big It has a lot of gorgeous, full page, glossy color photographs The text is pretty hokey, about the love that cat lovers feel for cats The book is ostensibly broken into nine sections like evolution and domestic but the sections didn t seem very different from each other, and it all blurred together into one, beautiful giant book of endless cat photos There were some photos of big cats, like panthers and shit, sprinkled randoml [...]

    2. The Life and Love of Cats is a wonderful want to read again book It is full of lovely quotes of cat knowledge There are types of breeds in this book, all with a quote There are amazing photographs of cats, and heart melting quotes All of the cats have different shapes, patterns, and sizes To slick cats, to furry, there are almost every cat in this book, if you re a crazy cat girl like me, I would read this book It has columns of breeds and how they act, what they do, what they like, etc It s a h [...]

    3. Gorgeous photos of cats, domestic and wild My one complaint is the format Some readers may not enjoy the large amount of small text, or the considerable weight of the book itself Overall though, cat lovers should really enjoy this book Reviewed by Wendy R.

    4. The written portions were definitely appealing and very informative but the true charm of this book is in the pictures The shots are stunningly beautiful works of art, some from very odd perspectives.

    5. I am a life long cat man But this very large coffee table book leaves me a little cold It is mostly photographs, which are okI did find the closeup of the cat tongue interestingbut generally they were somewhat boring The test is divided into 9 short chapters The chapter that was most interesting concerned the healing power of cats I have experienced this and the text rings very true I am becoming less tolerant of writers who feel they have to remind me NOT to anthropomorphize my cats I understan [...]

    6. This is a beautiful book It is large and heavy but a perfect coffee table book The pictures are glorious large and very well done I especially loved the kitten pics and the close ups There is a mixture of fun and thoughtful quotes and regular text interspersed throughout the book There was a lot of interesting information in the text, but it is tiny so small I couldn t read much at a time and found myself squinting to read it I know the gorgeous photographs were the focus of the book, but the te [...]

    7. The ultimate coffee table book for cat lovers As in The Life Love of Trees from the same creator, this book includes oversize photos on heavy paper with a lovely use of black and white negative spaces It reminded me that I used to have a cat calendar and loved finding out about the different breeds each day especially Abyssinian Bonus there is a kitten section It always gives me a shiver when I see a cat seeing what I can t see.

    8. One of the most beautiful books that I have ever read The pictures in this book are amazing The photographer is insanely talented and the author is a cat lover for sure I adore this book and fell in love with it right away I have four cats and if you are a cat lover like me than this book is for you.

    9. Amazing coffee table book about cats The photographs are absolutely wonderful and the narrative alternates between sparse text with a big font to long pages with a very small font I browsed through this book at a bookstore and I didn t get to read the whole thing, but I had to check out the pictures, at least This would be a wonderful book for anybody who loves cats.

    10. This book had beautiful pictures and some good information I didn t like that the text was so small in comparison to the size of the book making it a little hard to read Also, even though this is a book for cat lovers, it s difficult to read when you have cats who want to occupy your lap at the same time the giant book is there.

    11. Oversized coffee table book with huge photos of cats and kittens including close ups of eyes, tails, noses etc whatever will relate to the writing on the accompanying page The history of cats from recorded history forward is discussed and all sorts of writing and thoughts about cats and living with cats.

    12. Gorgeous photos of cats, domestic and wild My one complaint is that there is quite a bit of text in a book that is so enormous and heavy it s impossible to hold Maybe it s my almost 40 year old eyes, but I seriously couldn t read this without standing up and leaning over the table it was on Cat lover win format fail.

    13. Although I don t love the cover image, the content in this book was incredible The images inside were all gorgeous and any one of them could have done the cover better justice and the text was informative and interesting.Really enjoyed this book and I know that any cat lover would, too.

    14. One of those where you want to tear out all the pictures and hang them on your wall Tamara, Web Content Librarian Reserve a library copy.
