The magic of life with a cat! They keep us company, provide unconditional love, share in the ups and downs of our lives, and make every day an adventure.

How do cats do it? They brighten our days, act as our therapists, and become our best friends—without saying one word. They’re frequently hilarious, often heroic, and surprisingly human. And we learn so much from them, too.

You’ll find yourself laughing a lot, tearing up at times, and nodding your head in recognition as you read these tales, chosen from Chicken Soup for the Soul’s library, about the magical experience of sharing life with a cat. From comical to courageous, mischievous to miraculous, and everything in between, you’ll enjoy a wide variety of entertaining stories in these ten chapters:
Meant to Be
Miracles Happen
My Very Good, Very Bad Cat
Who Rescued Whom?
What I Learned from the Cat
We Are Family
Natural Therapists
Canine Friends
A Cat’s Purpose
Over the Rainbow
