WEDNESDAY WHIMSY




Some of Meow Favorite Reads
These are just a few of my (Lily’s) favorite books.

Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss is tops on my list. Guess why? Yes, you guessed it. The most important character is a mischievous feline, with his own pets, Thing 1 and Thing 2. He lets the kids know who is boss, too. He has cattitude! The brother and sister have fun with his antics. The fish that warns them, well, he’s as big a worry wart like Mom is here. No worries, the Cat in the Hat cleans up after himself and his friends. Only thing is, he looks awfully silly in a hat, bow-tie and gloves. Gloves? That couldbe a bit messy. I hope he takes them off when he uses the litter-box. 

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott is another favorite. The main character, Jo March, has a cat or two in her attic to keep her company when she writes. Her little sister, Beth, loves kittens! Besides, Mom really likes this story and relates to Jo wanting to be a writer.

Meow Mayhem by Lisa Lickel . . . just saying . . . the kitty on the cover is adorable and striped like . . . ahem . . . me. And it’s a nice cozy mystery with several cats in the mix and romance to boot.

By now you can see my theme. What are some of your favorite books with cats in them?

    1. Lilybits says: Thank you, Memnet. Sure, if I can sneak out of here
      later, I'll go. Mom doesn't let me go anywhere without a harness and
      leash.

  2. Good question, Lilybits. Hm. Let me think...There's the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland, Snowball in Stuart Little, and of course, Garfield. But currently your my favorite cat. You're actually making me think I need a few felines of my own. Working on that!

    1. Ah, yes, the Cheshire cat! He's so good at disappearing. :)
      Wish I could be as sneaky as that. And thank you for the
      lovely compliment. (says Lilybits)
