Well written, endearing, and full of valuable lessons, beautifully shared.

What an entertaining and heart-warming book! Good for an gentle and easy overview of some Buddhist ideas and "getting to know" a realistic and heartwarming cat and her people.

As a practicing lay-Buddhist I found this novel to be delightful. Told from the pov of the cat, the story delivers many of the ideas and words of the Dalai Lama, through chapters illustrating the growing understanding of the cat. Truly charming. I didn't want it to end, so it's great there's a sequel.

I loved this book! One of the best I've ever read. Thought provoking, funny and inspirational. I sped through it and would recommend it to anyone with a heartbeat!

I'm not a cat person, and I'm not a Buddhist, but this was a delightful and enjoyable easy read.

This is the most adorable book, and a must read if you love to read and love cats. It's very well written so it's not just a "fluff" book (pun intended). I laughed out loud a few times and fully enjoyed the read.

The cat on the cover got me to take out this book, but it is an dual themed book that will be enjoyed by both cat-lovers and those curious about Buddhism. A one-day light read that kept my interest!

Becoming a part of the Dalai Lama's household is a "purrfect" way to study the path towards enlightenment. Sweet!

We all face the same choice when dealing with problems. We don't ask for them. We don't want them. But the way we deal with them is what's most important. If we are wise, the greatest problems can lead to the greatest insights.
