Not just a story about a cat - it has some beautiful life teachings too!
on 26 July 2014
What a wonderful book!
As a cat lover I originally purchased this book simply because it was about a cat! And I think for a lot of people who just want a nice, feel good story, with a bit of cat hair, then this is ideal. However, it has opened up some new areas of interest for me which was not expected; I would like to find out more about Buddhism, its beliefs and teachings. I’m not saying I’m converted but it’s opened my eyes to how our thoughts and actions affect others, to understand how we feel in certain situations and control those emotions - and if we fail, then that is another lesson to be learned from. It has some beautiful teachings about life lessons and karma without being in any way preachy or in your face, which have changed my views on how I see myself and others.
I was not expecting the effect this book had on me – and I would like to thank David Mitchie very much for that!
It had me purchasing the second book (The art of purring) within 5 minutes of finishing the last page!
