Learn to Speak Cat: The Purrfect Guide by Anthony Smith is a little gem of a book which cat lovers of all ages will enjoy. Anthony’s own unique style of illustration graces each page with a simple title or comment – much like the cartoons published daily in The Metro.

The blurb on the back covers asks: ‘Are you having trouble communicating with your feline friend? This is the book for you. Gain the confidence to chat to your kitty on a variety of subjects, and discover the wacky world of cat language.

Start learning cat today through Anthony’s hilarious and, at times, surreal cartoons.’

Examples:    MEOWFIA – Organised cat crime
                   WHISPURR – Cat secrets
                   TOURHISSTS – Stray cats     

Anthony illustrated the banners for The Mewsletter and The Scratching Post and that will give you an idea of the way his mind views cats – the more quirky the better! I particularly loved ‘Catney Rhyming Slang’ – “Dog and stick … thick” and the Beauty Parlour where a cat is being shown his whisker extensions in a mirror, although, to be absolutely honest, I loved ALL the cartoons. Anthony has a real gift for imagining cats in their own natural settings and giving them a voice.

Learn to Speak Cat would make an ideal Christmas stocking filler and at only £4.99 it’s a steal and won’t break the bank!

Published in paperback by Souvenir Press the ISBN number is: 478-0-285640231-7

A Cats Prayer

Lead me down all the right paths,
Keep me from fleas, bees, and baths.
Let me in should it storm,
Keep me safe, fed, and warm.
