    One thought on “The Feline Mystique: On the Mysterious Connection Between Women and Cats

    1. I m a cat woman and the theme of the book is interesting, of course, but I felt a bit disappointed, however The book was unstructured containing some history, myths, statistics and stories about cat owners and their cats, Simon s own cat Cyrus as the main theme and it was hard to follow the plot I loved to read about Cyrus most and had tears in my eyes reading about the end of it s life.


    2. Loving a cat can make a great book see Peter Gethers, The Cat Who Went to Paris, etc But it s not enough This is a non book with a bit of mythology, a few statistics, several anecdotes, and a bunch of pop psychology It would have made a decent magazine article Maybe.


    3. Read a few chapters but had to put it down It s a too business like approach to a subject that could be light and fun I guess there s a place for this book in the market though Someday I might finish it, but I m just not in the mood right now.


    4. I was speaking to a friend about this the other day and we agreed that any book with the subtitle On the Mysterious Connection Between Women and Cats is bound to end up being about the author and her cat That s okay, because this book is lovely and the author does cover many topics beyond her relationship with her cat If you have a cat or have had one, this book will make you cry I read a little bit each evening, with my two cats curled up on me, and I cried my way through the last few chapters [...]


    5. An interesting and unique book exploring the human feline relationship, specifically focusing on the unique bonds that tend to form between cats and women The book was well researched, exploring how human views of cats and the female have changed and have been entwined through history Interviews with dozens of modern women and stories of the author s relationship with her own cat keep the book fresh, interesting, and emotionally centered While some of the pop culture references feel a little sta [...]


    6. It seemed like a slow book in the beginning for me, but following the life of the author with her cat Cyrus was so heartwarming I definitely loved reading about how cats and women have this deep, complex relationship Such a good book to indulge myself with for a fun read.



    7. If you ve ever been referred to as a cat lady , well, this book is for you Take pride in being called a cat lady It s a beautiful thing
