Book ~ "Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Magic of Cats" (2020) Amy Newmark

From Goodreads ~ You'll recognize your own cat in this entertaining collection of stories about the surprising, amusing, heartwarming, and even magical things that our cats do. 

They come in all shapes, sizes, and personalities, but one thing is for sure - our cats are magical, beloved members of our families. 

These 101 heartwarming, humorous and completely true stories about our feline friends are sure to touch every cat lover's soul. You'll be left with a renewed love, affection and appreciation for your cat and all the magical moments she provides.

I love reading stories about animals and  we have two cats ... so this book caught my eye.  I used to read all in the Chicken Soup for the Soul books but it's been a while.

There are 101 stories and poems about kittens and cats and they are divided into chapters:
  1. Magical Miraculous Cats
  2. Clever Cats
  3. When the Cat Choose You
  4. What a Character
  5. Cat Therapy
  6. Oh So Naughty
  7. Four-Legged Friends
  8. Tricks & Traits
  9. Learning to Love the Cat
  10. Brave Cats

The stories are a couple pages each so are a quick read and most were interesting.

It's amazing how many cats, though, were indoor/outdoor cats (ours are strictly indoor cats) and how many of the stories involved owners who had multiple cats (like five or more) plus multiple dogs.  And some have catteries in their barns and sheds so how much human contact would the cats get?
