Book ~ "A Letter to My Cat: Notes to Our Best Friends" (2014) Lisa Erspamer

From Goodreads ~ Alluring, elusive, mysterious - the cats in our lives are not always easy to get to know. But as with all pets, they have unique personalities and stories to tell. 

Alongside beautiful four-color photos of their cats, A Letter to My Cat collects personal letters from celebrities offering love and gratitude for all that their cats bring to their lives.

I love reading books about animals and this one sounded cute ... and it was.  If you are a cat lover, you have to check it out!

There are letters to their cats from various celebrities including Rosanna Arquette, Anne Burrell, Joe Perry, Dr. Oz, Gina Gershon, Paige Hemmis ("When life gets crappy, clean the litter box and move on."), Kathy Ireland, Lisa Ray, Stacy London and lots more.

The letters are loving and heartwarming ... they are definitely cat lovers!  The pictures of the cats are gorgeous (I copied these from the website).

Lauren and Gypsy
There is even a letter from Lauren Harper, the wife of our prime minister, to their cat, Gypsy ... here is a part of it:
"You were so thin my husband wondered if I'd brought you home to die.  He was concerned that our children would be left heartbroken.  But before long you even had the prime minister wrapped around your battered paw.

By the time your injuries healed and you began to gain weight, you'd become an integral part of our family.  I wish I would thank the Good Samaritans who rescued you.  They might be surprised to know that the prime minister fills your breakfast bowl.  And that you mingle with rock stars and presidents, philanthropists and though leaders, shedding on everyone equally, regardless of their wealth or stature.  Because of you, we always have a lint roller at the ready."
