Book #9: Angel Cats: Divine Messengers of Comfort by Allen & Linda Anderson
I like to read books which are compilations of short stories and I like to read about cats, so Angel Cats: Divine Messengers of Comfort was a no-brainer for me to pick up.
Since losing my beloved cat, Sebastian, I've been interested in the spiritual connection we have with our pets. Angel Cats had several stories with just that subject. It's comforting to hear about other people and the relationship they have with their cats.
The book is edited by Allen and Linda Anderson who run the Angel Animals Network. Each story is written by a different author and is a personal story about a cat (or cats) they have had in their lives. We are shown glimpses of relationships by reading about the loving, playful, and teaching moments people have with their cats.
Many stories brought me to tears. They reminded me of my own relationships with cats. I also enjoyed the meditation at the end of each story. It assisted me in reflecting on my own experiences.
If you're a cat lover and have had a special cat in your life, you will really enjoy this book. It's one you can sit and read for a long stretch or you can read one story at a time, then spend some time thinking about what you've just read. I also think it would make a great gift for that cat lover in your life!
