Crazy Feline Antics - #ChewyInfluencer

Since Mom Paula's retirement, she's found some time to read, which she always loved. She really likes to read stories about animals, especially cats.

Brulee wondering if any of her stories are in this book



We received a book from the series: Chicken Soup for the Soul® from Chewy.com to review. Chewy.com carries 12 books in this series that tell humorous and touching stories about the dogs and cats in our lives. We received the "I Can't Believe My Cat Did That!" to read and review.


Brulee looks on in disbelief at the antics some of these crazy felines did

This particular book is filled with 101 short stories about the crazy antics of felines. Mom Paula loves these type of books because she can read a few short stories before going to bed and finish the story before falling asleep. There are humorous stories as well as amazing stories of heroic stories of cats.  Some will bring tears to your eyes (both sadness and laughter), but all are enjoyable. One of Mom Paula's favorite stories was about Chuck, in the story, "Unforgiven." Chuck was a rescue cat who had been returned to the shelter several times until a couple adopted him and saved his life. The couple decided to go on vacation for the first time after making sure Chuck was okay. They said every where they went, they saw something that reminded them of Chuck. Upon returning with a gift in hand for Chuck, he basically ignored them and showed them what he thought of their gift.

12 Titles available from Chewy.com

There are cartoons throughout the book and each short story begins with a motivational quote. I look forward to reading other books in the series.



You can purchase this book, along with others in the series at Chewy.com expensively ($8.00 up). Ideally, I'd purchase it when you purchase other supplies, such as cat litter, food, etc., in order to receive the free 2-day shipping if the order totals $49+.

  7. I remember seeing the call for submissions for some of these. What a great way to stay positive and go to sleep with a smile on our faces :) Since The Boy moved in, I've given up reading. I miss it. I'd probably choose the "My very good, very bad cat." That's Bear Cat to a tee!

  16. I love the Chicken Soup series of books, and being owned by two cats, this looks like one a book I would enjoy curling up and reading

  17. It's so refreshing to read positive stories about cats and other pets instead of sad tales of neglect. Reading a few just before bed is a great way to fall asleep with a smile on your face.

  21. I'd probably like "Loving Our Dogs" the best. I like short story collections because it is easy to read a little bit and then do something else. Sometimes I get so engrossed with a novel, that I can't put it down.

  22. What a fun giveaway. I love books. Hmm I like " What I learned from the Cat". So sweet you read to your girls at night. :)

  23. The Chicken Soup books are such a staple of goodness. And I completely agree about how beneficial short reads are. Sometimes I read shorter pieces after reading a book that I know will stay with me for a while. I use those short stories as a mental palette cleanse.
