Book Summary

"The cat is us, as we wish life could be." This short poetry chapbook is a celebration of cats as much as it is a look into loneliness, into the heart of a poet, and perhaps into yourself. If you've read my previous cat-themed collection, LOVE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LITTER BOX, then you know what to expect: Cats are the stars of some poems, bit players in others, but they are always there, purring in your ear, telling us life isn't so bad if we'd only just open our eyes and see...

SAMPLE POEM: "MAGNIFICENT BEASTS" There's a cat inside us, biting, clawing to get out. This cat is wild— it wants to be free, to return to its feral roots. It doesn't understand jobs, laws, taxes. It only understands what we have forgotten: our connection to nature, our desire to roam free and unfettered like the magnificent beasts we are.

"This is a poetry book about cats, but it's more than that; it's a reflection of the author's philosophy and musings in the eyes of his cats. . . . It connects with you on a profound level."

--Kindle reviewer

"Loved this. There is a profound sensitivity of insight into the way human and cat lives intertwine . . . What can I say except this is a must for anyone who loves cats."
