women who still love cats too muchIf you are a cat woman or a cat man, you will see yourself over and over again in Women Who Still Love Cats Too Much by Allie Zobel Nolan. Eighty-pages of one-liners with illustrations by Nicole Hollander will make you laugh out loud as you recognize yourself on page after page.

Nolan described me perfectly more times than I can count. It’s as if she were hiding in my house spying on me. Here are a few gems in which I saw myself and Kitties Blue.

  • Your cat expects you to stand at attention opening and closing doors for her on a whim.
  • You won’t turn over during the night no matter how uncomfortable you are because you might disturb the cats. (Photographic evidence from my house.)
  • women who still love cats too muchYou feel obliged to nap with your cats during the day—then can’t sleep at night.
  • You let your cat walk back and forth over your face without so much as a “pardon me.”

  • You know your overwhelming love for your puddy makes you do weird things like…learn how to type with one hand, so the other is free to massage your kitty. (More Photographic proof from my house).

If none of these statements describe your relationship with your furballs, I guarntee you will find others that totally characterize your human/cat relationship. You’ll be laughing and possibly groaning a little as you recognize yourself.

You will enjoy Hollander’s quirky and colorful illustrations as well.
