We are thrilled to announce the first annual Cat Wisdom 101 Editor’s Choice, Top 10 Cat Book Award. In 2012, I reviewed over 100 books (at two blogs) and easily read twice that number. About half were cat books and of those, half were very good. My choices for the top 10 include fiction and nonfiction and are listed in the order they were reviewed. All would make excellent choices as gifts for cat lovers. The list includes links to the original reviews. Please consult the reviews as some books are not suitable for children.

There are more wonderful cat books than ever, and I look forward to sharing the latest and best ones with you in 2013. Congratulations to our Top 10!

  2. Cats and books have been natural companions since they used to stretch out in the sun on stone tablets! I had a bookshop for years and we fostered cats from the local shelter in the shop. Such a wonderful idea to have businesses foster shelter animals. It kept our shelter nearly kill-free to have local shops foster cats, dogs and even rabbits. Wish more towns would do this!

  3. Did you read daily dose of dogs aka cats with your coffee by Chrystal Parker? It’s a bound version of her blog of the same name for its first year. It’s an amazing story of a woman running a private rescue of cats, but “only the ones that cross our paths”! It’s amazing how many cross her path, how she manages to build a cat house for them, a walkway as a memorial for those of us who have lost loved ones (and a fundraiser for the kitties!) and provide a number of us great Forever Friends!! One of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitties is a Winnie’s Wish cat and her story is in this book, which I can heartily recommend. Even though I read this blog in real time I still enjoyed rereading it all at once in a bound version (okay, I admit it, you need tissue and chocolate too!!).

  4. Great list! I have 2 of them, and they are wonderful! Thank you very much Layla. Am keeping list for future shopping.

  5. We loved loved loved the Dalai Lama’s cat and we need to do a review on that! Sigh. So many posts. So little time (according to the woman. I have all the time in the world).

  6. Thanks so much for this list. Was looking for a good read to carry me through some down time. Hey, but if anyone wants a gift book, small, affordable, to present as a stocking stuffer/secret santa/or hostess gift, perhaps they can check out Cat Confessions: A Kitty Come Clean Tell All Book, or I’d Rather Be a Cat: the Official Better than Dogs Cat Book.

  7. I loved Cat Daddy and Julia’s Cats. I Could Pee on This is so funny, read it in minutes. Some that I am surprised didn’t make the list are Buckley’s Story and Purrs of Wisdom by Ingrid King. Also I’m surprised that A Cat Who Came Back For Christmas by Julia Romp wasn’t on there, I’m not done reading it yet, but so far it’s an incredible book.

  8. The book The Dalai Lama’s cat we won has arrived and we plan on reading later today. Its a cold day here so its purrfect to stay in and snuggle with a blankie,a cat or two and read a good book. We want to try to read all the great books in your top ten list! Thank you for sharing! Luvs Skeeter and Izzy >^@@^<
