Reading is one of my favorite pastimes… Yes, kitty models read! My life is not just quick quips on social media. I also love getting lost in the pages of a good book, and here are 15 of my very favorite reads — all of them highly recommended for both cats and professional pet assistants.
1. National Geographic Field Guide to the Birds of North America ($19, amazon.com)
Because I’ve always enjoyed locally sourced food. This field guide is a must for any serious feline chef.
I suppose you could also use it for birding too.
2. Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life ($9.72, amazon.com)
Speaking of birds, I reread this book at least once a year. Yes, it’s that good. It’s filled with lots of practical advice for writers and will make you laugh along the way.
It’s a classic in the writing genre, and it really helped me get through my memoirs. I particularly like the advice on not self-editing while you write your first draft.
3. Chanel: Collections and Creations ($32.47, amazon.com)
I turn to this book whenever I need inspiration. It’s filled with lovely, luxuriant pictures on every aspect of Chanel — clothes, jewelry, accessories, makeup, fragrance — from throughout the brand’s storied history.
I always keep it on my coffee table next to a bowl of Feline Greenies.
