The Cats Who Crossed Over from Paris: Enchanting New Book for Kids & Animal Lovers; Hailed “Fantastic!” by Critics.

Out of all pets, cats have a distinct personality and aura of seriousness that makes them some of the most fascinating creatures on the planet. According to many cat owners, their pets always appear to be plotting something, including the leading felines in R.F. Kristi’s enthralling new book.

‘The Cats Who Crossed Over from Paris’ is part one of Kristi’s new ‘Inca Cat Series’. Forget simple meowing – these cats have a crime to solve!

Synopsis:

Inca, a Siberian puss, tells the story about her furry family – her brother Fromage, who is addicted to cheese and considers himself a cheese monger, and her sister, Cara, a gorgeous but timid Siamese. Inca, an avid fan of Dr. House, considers herself the leader of the troupe and responsible for the well-being of the family. They own, according to Inca, Missy, a young humanoid who has a well-established cheese shop in Paris. The story revolves around how Missy decides to move to London with her co-partners, Jacques and Genevieve, to run their new cheese shop and café. Can Fromage leave his pal, Charlotte, behind? Soon after arriving in London, the three cats accompany Missy to their neighbor’s house where they meet Monk, a blue Russian cat and Terrance, a golden retriever owned by their famous neighbor, a detective named Solo, living in the same compound in Kensington.

Things start to get interesting when Monk tries to help their neighbor, Polo, a sad little Pekinese whose mistress, a formerly well-known opera singer who is pining for her lost husband, has her valuable diamond necklace stolen. Can Inca and her family assist Monk and Terrance to recover the diamond necklace and resolve Polo’s problems

Can Cats be Wicked?

Can Cats be Wicked?

Hello Katzenworld Fans,

As we all know, cats are adorable and mostly loved by all. We hardly hear anything bad about them, and in reality, they are one of the easiest pets to take care of. However, today I wish to talk about the ones that are known to be not so nice and discuss whether there is a possible reason for it.

Looking into the casting crew of many animation films and books I can distinctively remember this one cat. He not only found chasing mice and eating them as a pleasurable sport but he also would create conflict between the pets in the house, causing them to get kicked outside.

Along side, the mischievous behaviour mentioned he would also create more work for his keeper and found it incredibly entertaining when she would get punished for his failed evil ideas.

Who is this cat you ask? Why, it is our very own black fur, toothy grin, and sneaky wicked cheating predator called LUCIFER.

Can a cat be so mean or do we just see them in fiction? Has anyone ever been owned by a cat that was just vicious? Can animals have a wicked side to them or are they all sweet natured and just good spirited. Let me know in the comment section!

My belief is that animals are all good-natured from the start. It is their keeper demonstrating and teaching them the wrong way of behaving which then reflects on them. Being mean or wicked maybe the case in Lucifer’s case but I can almost guarantee that if he had a different owner, he might have never been that cruel.

What are your thoughts on this topic? I would love to hear your opinion.

catopedia

Why do cats cry to come in and then cry to go out again? Why do they chatter silently at the window? Why can’t they be trained to fetch your slippers? Where are the most unusual places they’ve been employed as mousers? Why are there so many cat superstitions?
This cat compendium educates and entertains with facts about everything from wild cat ancestry and cat physiology to cat worship and cat movie stars. Investigate how cats experience the world and what they think of their human companions and explore just how significant cats have been in society throughout the ages.
Drawing on the vast body of knowledge belonging to the world’s most famous dogs and cats home, the book contains numerous snippets that readers can dip into as well as longer essays and stories that can be enjoyed at leisure.

Our over-all verdict: This book is simply amazing! In a fun and entertaining way it teaches us about cats through history and how for example they kept the mail depots free of vermin! But it also gives you insights on various breeds and cat behaviour.

If you are a catlover or are looking for a gift for a catlover when this is your purrfect choice! Whats even better profits of this book go to Battersea Dogs & Cats home to help them with their re-homing projects and the general welfare projects conducted by them.
