#4 Cat Proverbs by David Walker

Cat Proverbs by David WalkerGet this book or read more reviews of it by using the links below

For all cat lovers, their behaviour is both fascinating and frustrating. We think we understand them, but we do not. We think we own them, but they own us. We are like lovers who are constantly rebuffed and rejected because their main characteristic is indifference. We struggle with, and seek to break down, that indifference.

Within the routine of places to sleep and things to eat, their lives proceed in slow, stately equanimity. So their languid self-possession becomes an emotional magnet for our affection.. We flatter ourselves that we do know how they think, and even what motivates them. But the plain fact is that we have barely a clue. This book offers a few sketchy suggestions for the rules which govern their lives.

With the help of cheeky stray Eric, the mysterious François and the beautiful Miss Fifi, George gives Dog lessons in cat manners – but all does not go well. Maybe Dog will find it impossible to change?
