A collection of writings on the many lessons we can learn from cats-life, love, our spiritual nature, and more Charles Dickens once said, What greater gift than the love of a cat? And cat lovers everywhere would agree-too often cats are seen as mysterious, independent, or aloof, yet they bring a wealth of love and wisdom to those who welcome them into their homes and hearts. In The Karma of Cats, spiritual teachers, writers, and animal experts share stories and reflections on lessons learned from their feline friends. This collection of touching odes to our beloved kitty companions will at times make you laugh out loud and at others bring tears to your eyes. Join authors such as Alice Walker, Andrew Harvey, Sandra Ingerman, Joan Ranquet, and others to explore themes of love and loss, radical respect, fierce leadership, honoring your true self, and more. The Karma of Cats provides a beautiful compilation for anyone who loves cats and appreciates the unique ways they embody the core spiritual values we try to live by.
The Karma of Cats is yet more proof that cats teach us to be better humans, and sometimes even save our lives. Read this book with a cat on your lap, then hand it to another biped in need of inspiration. --Caroline Paul, author of Lost Cat and The Gutsy Girl What I find most enticing about The Karma of Cats are the golden filaments of respect, delight, and appreciation that weave through the unique voice of each storyteller, these kindred spirits who--like ourselves--treasure the remarkable gifts bestowed upon us by our feline family members. --Susan Chernak McElroy, author of Why Buffalo Dance
