A family effort this week to make the list of OUR TOP 5 BOOKS WITH CATS IN!
We like cats.
We like books.
Books with cats are extra good!
So here are our Top 5 in no particular order:
Caius’ choice up first – when I randomly sprung the ‘what’s your favourite book with a cat in?’ question on him over the dinner table one evening, this was his immediate answer. He even remembered the cat was called Hamish! The lighthouse keeper didn’t just have lunch, it turns out he also had a cat!
Another classic that we love even more after having our own Six Dinner Sid-style visitor at our old house. Our NotMyCat, Felix who used to drop in for cuddles and cat biscuits whenever he felt like it! We miss him a bit.
My pick – because not all cat books are for kids. This is the story of a stray cat who adopted some humans, all dutifully translated from the feline by the aforementioned human. It is perfection.
Hairy Maclary’s cat counterpart, we adore the Lynley Dodd books and Slinki Malinki is no exception. We quite often read these ones twice at bed time.
Have we missed your favourite cat book off our list? Please tell us if we have so we can expand our collection!
