Valentine's Day Cat Book Feature: "You Know Your Cat Loves You Because..." by Jeff Parks and Nina Brissey, Illustrations by Mark Sean Wilson

Valentine's Day is the day of LOVE!!! What better day for you to show love for your cat(s), and your cat to show love to YOU than Valentine's Day, right? Well, truth be told, our cats show us they love us EVERY SINGLE DAY of their furry little lives....or DO they?


After reading You Know Your Cat Loves You Because...The Sweet, Silly, and Scientific Ways Our Cats Show Us How Much They Love Us  I am having some SERIOUS doubts as to whether or not Cody TRULY LOVES ME! (But more about that later!!)

When author Jeff Parks connected with me via email, (thank you to Layla Morgan Wilde of Cat Wisdom 101 for sending Jeff my way!) it was easy to see why cats love him! He is affable, funny, warm hearted and any guy that decides to adopt his ex-girlfriend's cat when their relationship ends, is pretty ok in my book! That's exactly what happened with Jeff and his cat "Windows" who was the first cat he bonded with. Jeff got custody of "Windows" when the couple split. Sadly, Windows passed (and Jeff is still morning him).  Windows is one of 3 cats (the other two are Macready and Sinbad, Sinbad lived with co-author Nina Brissey) that this witty and fun book are dedicated to. I am hoping Jeff doesn't mind that I am quoting an excerpt from his email communication with me:
Author Jeff Parks

"My bond with Windows was like no other bond I had had before with an animal. It got pretty intense three years before I had to let him go, due to me taking care of him for a bunch of treatable conditions. That meant a lot of vet visits and pharmacy runs. He was worth all of it. Like you, if I think about him too hard, I cry pretty easily. I still have Mac, who is a wonderful cat, too. Thankfully he is in great condition."

(ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Jeff Parks is a freelance writer and editor.  He shares a home in Temecula, California with his spirited and wonderful cat, Mac.) 

Windows is the cat who turned Jeff Parks into the epitome of a loving "Cat Daddy"







As you can see above, the illustrations by award winning illustrator, Mark Sean Wilson are just too cute and capture the purrsonalities of the amazing felines that we all know and so deeply love. The above illustration is one of 50 black and white illustrations (that have captions beneath them), featured in the book. Let me tell you my kitty loving furiends, this is a book you MUST GET YOUR HUMAN PAWS ON!! You will be laughing and nodding your head in agreement, or....like me.....you will start to question whether or not YOUR cat TRULY LOVES YOU!

Now, remember when I said that Cody must NOT love me? Well, when reading this hilarious book I was given documented proof!

"When you're sick, they stay close until you feel better"  In Cody's case that is FALSE!! Cody would step over me if I were laying dead on the floor. My Angel Bobo was the one who stayed close by me when I was sick.

"They create beautiful art for you" (By shredding toilet paper)...something Cody has NEVER done.
  
"Sometimes they walk across your back and give you a massage." Cody never has done that!



"They play in every cardboard box you open..."  Cody is not a fan of boxes!

See what I mean? Cody doesn't LOVE ME!!!!

Well, that is a LIE! Why?

Because in You Know Your Cat Loves You Because...  it features A TON of ways that show me that CODY DOES LOVE ME!! HE LOVES ME! HE TRULY LOVES ME!!! I am not listing all of the ways that Cody DOES love me because I urge you to pick up a copy of  You Know Your Cat Loves You Because...

 YOU need a copy of this book to find out if YOUR cat(s) LOVE YOU!!



From You Know Your Cat Loves You Because...

"You know what every meow means, what every lift of the tail signals, what your cat likes, and of course, what they dislike."

"Cats show their love in a multitude of ways. Ways you may never have known or imagined. From the scientific, to the sweet, to the silly, this book illustrates all the ways our cats indisputably love us!!!"

Right Cody?


"You Know Your Cat Loves You Because...The Sweet, Silly, and Scientific Ways Our Cats Show Us How Much They Love Us" is a love letter to cat owners everywhere. It's funny, heartwarming, and a bit nutty. Just like our cats."

Available on Amazon

Cody and I give it a zillion head bumps
 and 4 paws and 2 hands up!!!!

  13. That sounds like a lovely book. Flynn wouldn't leave my side when I was ill, in fact he knew before me that there was something major wrong the first time I had cancer. He would lie across my stomach and purr his darling little heart out.
    Eric was the one for giving massages.
    Happy Valentine's Day, Caren, Cody and Dakota, and not forgetting Lenny of course.
