I was recently sent a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful book to review for my websites titled Lessons from Stanley the Cat: Nine Lives of Everyday Wisdom.
This warm, funny, and very thought-provoking book was written by Jennifer Freed as a tribute to her beloved cat (a real character if there ever was one!) Stanley. Not only is the book a beautiful account of a very special little cat and the love he had for his human… and vice-versa… Lessons from Stanley the Cat: Nine Lives of Everyday Wisdom also serves as a self help and self improvement book, offering countless tips and lessons.

The little book will become one of your favorites instantly – you’ll fall in love with the illustrations, the author, and most certainly Stanley.
Seduction is just the practice of artful stretching.
Never let people know how fast you are. Appear slow in all things, and less is expected of you. When someone is on the computer too long, help them by distracting them, or walk lightly on their keyboard.
So advises Stanley, a remarkably astute cat with a keen eye for the important things in life. Perhaps you don’t have time for yoga, can’t afford therapy, or wouldn’t dare cry to mother. If so, let Stanley be your guide. Lessons from Stanley the Cat offers wise and witty maxims from Stanley himself, translated by his doting psychotherapist (human) parent, Jennifer Freed. Whether you’re a cat lover or prefer companions of the canine variety, Stanley’s warmth and insight are sure to brighten even the grayest days.
