Book Author Bailey

We are so proud of our brofur Bailey and his Mum Louise for writing this most pawsome book, Bailey Boat Cat: Adventures of a Feline Afloat. We received our very own pawtographed copy a couple of weeks ago. Though not available in hardcover in the U.S. until September 2, and scheduled to be reviewed at a later date by some of your favorite blogging kitties, we felt compelled to give Bailey a shout out.

Bailey’s book is a must read for any kitty aspiring to be a boat cat or human contemplating taking their feline on sailing adventures.

A portion of the blurb from the back cover of the book sums up its content quite well: “Alongside a gallery of his glamorous onboard poses, Bailey reveals in these pages his feline philosophies on the world afloat. Discover the importance of cubby holes, the secret to catching tasty fish, and how to execute a textbook cat overboard drill.”

Every page includes full-color photos and the book is sprinkled with tidbits called, “Whisker Wisdom.” A couple of these insights are: “To be curious on a boat is to have the world at your paws,” and “When you are hungry, eat. When you’re tired, take a nap. When you crave adventure…go sailing.”

A variety of informative lists are part of the text as well, including “Eight ways to communicate with your tongue!” and our favorite, “Five knots every boat cat should know.”

You’ll find out about those darn dingy devils, using GPS (Getting Places Safely), navigating the galley, sending a MeowDay message and a wealth of other impawtant advice.

A Nook version of the book is available at for $10.49, and a Kindle version is on Amazon for $8.69. But we suggest waiting for the hardcover version, which you can pre-order from the aforementioned sites for $11.96 or $12., respectively. This is a book that you want to hold in your hands and enjoy viewing often.

And please don’t forget that you can visit Bailey daily on his blog, Bailey Boat Cat, where you can read about his current adventures on Nocturne.
