The Cat Behavior Answer Book {Review}



Do you ever find yourself wondering, "Why does my cat do that???"  Why does he play with paper?  Why does she eat grass?  How do I litter box train my kittens?  The questions go on and on in the world of cats. Author Arden Moore answers a cat owner's pressing questions in this comprehensive 2nd edition of The Cat Behavior Answer book.  In fact, Moore answered all the questions I had and many that I didn't even realize I was asking.  All in a clear, common sense manner.

Our family has had cats in our household most of my life.  They have been our faithful friends, and this Cat Behavior Answer Book gave us fresh insight into their personalities and needs.  I was pleasantly surprised how thorough this book was.  It started with some basic ideas and moved into more in-depth topics.  The Q&A format, colorful photos, and interesting facts keep this book engaging from cover to cover.  My 11-year old son loved it as well.  And that's a win for Mom.

This book would make a wonderful title for the new cat owner.  However, more experienced pet owners are sure to find helpful information as well.  A great reference for anyone who loves cats!

Weekend Links ll September 23, 2022

 















This Week: 

What I'm Cooking:
Last night we made homemade tomato soup that we've adapted over the years.  We started with Pioneer Woman's recipe and over the past few years, we've made it our own.  It's so yummy and my daughter made homemade rolls to go with it.  My favorite!

What I'm Reading:
Right now, I'm reading a review book on cat behavior.  I never knew there was so much that I didn't know.  Hahaha... we're learning a ton about our Daisy.  My 11 year old son has been reading about it as well and we're adapting it as part of our science lessons.  Win, Win!

What I'm Doing:
I've been trying to get some decluttering done this fall.  The kids all have fall birthdays so our little house can fill up real quick.  Plus I've been accused of being a hoarder.  I blame it on my sentimental nature.

What I'm Enjoying:
Having the windows open at night and in the mornings...
Listening to my 11 year old sing...
Pumpkin muffins...
Learning about new artists...
our Bible curriculum...

What are you up to?

Odder {Review}


Inspired by the real life Monterey Bay Aquarium program that partners orphaned otter pups with surrogate mothers, Odder is a humorous free verse tale told through the eyes of the Queen of Play.  Odder has spent most of her life off the coast of central California.  Until one day she has a brutal encounter with a shark that leads her to the aquarium.  While there, she is reunited with her friend and the two start an incredible journey of fostering other otter pups.

Sweet, lyrical, and charming, Odder is a beautiful story of loss and hope.  I loved how much non-fiction information was woven into the writing.  Katherine Applegate did a wonderful job balancing a lovable character with learning about otters, ocean life, rescue and rehabilitation, and so much more.  The style of writing made this a book that is easily accessible for most readers, and could be read quickly or broken in to small sections.  All in all, I loved it and can't wait to share it with my kids.  Beautiful story and very well-written.
