The Nine Emotional Lives of Cats: A Journey Into the Feline Heart ~ by Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, 2002, animal psychology"I have always loved dogs and cats, having lived with both since I was a child. Several years ago I wrote a book, Dogs Never Lie About Love, about the emotional lives of those wonderful animals. It was a very popular book. I noticed, however, that readers of that book would often speak to me disparagingly about cats — usually something about cats not really having an emotional life or cats being basically indifferent. I knew this is not true, though it is untrue in ways that were not always obvious. Too many people tend to see cats as uncomplicated creatures with few emotions, at least none worth thinking about in any depth. I am convinced that, on the contrary, cats are almost pure emotion."
I think the nine chapters sound intriguing, so I'm ready to jump into this book.
My favorite reader review on Amazon was simply, "Great little book. My cats read it from cover to cover." Maybe Clawdia would like to read this one, too. I like my cover best (shown at the top), but look at alternate covers. Interesting.
