This is my third participation in 23 PAWS (you can check the first one here and the second one here).

What is 23 PAWS? It is a way for pet lovers who have a blog to “party” (pawty?) online every 23rd of the month, by blogging about pets (their pets, their family’s or friends’ pets). Another reason to blog about your pet ;-) PAWS is also an acronym for “play.adore.wag.scratch.”

My cat Texas is a socialite. He has his own blog and occasionally, he attends virtual “pawties” on Twitter.

He recently attended a virtual book signing party on Twitter organized by fellow blogger and kitty heroine of his, Sparkle. Sparkle is a beautiful Somali Ladycat and I think my cat Texas is a little in love.

Anyway,back to the twitter pawty, err, party. Sparkle was promoting her book: “Dear Sparkle: Cat-to-Cat Advice from the World’s Foremost Feline Columnist.” She was aso offering to pawtograph the book.

During the party, Texas won a copy of the book and later made a review of the book.

If you want to read my cat’s review, you can follow the link above. I wanted to seize the occasion of 23 PAWS to share with furry friends lovers – especially cat lovers – my human review of the book.

The book is claimed to be written by Sparkle, the beautiful Somali kitty I mentioned above, and clearly it can only have been written by a cat! No human would have the wits and humor that Sparkle demonstrates.

The book is a compilation of letters sent to Sparkle by desperate kitties looking for answers to their problems.

Silly? Not at all! Every human who is owned by a cat should read this book. It is full of witty advice on cat-human relationships and on diverse cat issues, such as cat toys and games, litter box issues or a kitty’s sense of ownership of your stuff. It will enable humans to better understand cats. It will enable YOU to better understand (your) cats.

The book is very well written and a pleasure to read. It is funny and serious at the same time: the last letter of the book to which Sparkle answers is particularly moving and should be read by any human planning to visit a shelter to adopt a kitty. No spoiler here, you should really read the book! You won’t regret it.

The book is also full of beautiful pictures of the author, Sparkle.

If you happen to already love cats, you should definitely get this book. If you aren’t a cat person (yet), you might be surprised to find out that, after reading this book, you’ll want to give it a try. Seriously.
The book also makes a lovely and funny present for the cat lovers you know.

[This book was won through my cat’s blog. Receiving the book and having my cat make me read it did not influence my opinion]
