Overview

From Hairballs to Hair Straightening . . .

Women face certain challenges when they reach, um, a certain age and who doesn't enjoy a funny cat story? With essays, really bad poetry and ridiculous photos of the author and her cats (as well as some unsuspecting family members), "Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady . . . And Othe Possibly Demented Meanderings" offers the best of both worlds. Topics cover the full gamut of two- and four-legged dilemmas-divorced and dating after many years of marriage, purse envy, weight loss and gain, body image (human) and escape attempts, euthanasia, and rock-swallowing (critter), among other subjects. Culled from a massive literary database (aka the rather demented mind of author Sandra Gurvis), some writings appeared in publications such as Columbus Monthly, I Love Cats, and the anthology CAT'S MEOW, while others are completely original.

This book is a must-read for cat ladies, aspiring cat ladies and/or people who love cats and/or women. It can also serve as precautionary guide for those wishing to avoid cat ladydom. But like potato chips and sometimes felines themselves-the stories may be hard to stop reading after just one!

    Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady: And Other Possibly Demented Meanderings by Sandra Gurvis is an autobiography laced with tons of humor. The author takes the reader on a trip which covers many topics, the main one being cats. So it's a must-read for all women who are cat lovers.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the book because there are a lot of laughs. The author's humor is infectious and it is difficult for the reader to put the book down. Every chapter will tickle you and the author does not mind taking potshots at herself. One thing about humor is that it's a great thing if you can laugh at yourself, which is what the author does here. Pictures of cats in different poses and in different parts of the house are included. The dog Duke's picture is also there.

    For me the most humorous part of the book was where the author has written about Sasha the cat. The author tells us how to learn about forgiveness from Sasha and the tips made me laugh out loud. To top that, she has added Sasha in a zen-like pose, which indicates the author's sense of humor and how she looks at things.

    Confessions of a Cat Lady is mostly about cats and includes a few dogs. It's a book which all feline lovers will enjoy reading and each story is hilarious. I realized after reading this how much I enjoy cat tales.
