Our Cat Wisdom Top 10 Cat Books of 2015 are selected from traditionally published books we’ve reviewed this year. Every year we read far more book than we review. To narrow down the list, we generally don’t review self-published or small press books, although there were some good ones like the cat story anthology Rescue Me. This year we are awarding only two Golden Purr awards one for fiction and one for nonfiction which we’ll announce next week. The books are listed in no particular order and all make excellent gifts for cat lovers.
