PRAISE FOR Purrs of Wisdom

“Purrs of Wisdom, by Ingrid King, is a treat for anyone who is enchanted by all things feline! The book is an exploration of lessons on living a joyful and inspired life, learned from the many magical cats who have shared the author’s journey.
I found gifts on every page, but the section titled Lessons from a Maple Tree especially touched my heart. The author talks about taking time out of her busy day to soak up the tree’s magnificent colors when the leaves change in the fall. “Doing nothing without feeling guilty” is a lesson she learned from her cats. Ingrid’s words were a gentle reminder to this fast-paced former New Yorker to look to my own kitties for guidance when my world seems to be spinning a bit too quickly.
Purrs of Wisdom is sure to be a treasured addition to any cat lover’s library!”

- Christine Davis, Author of For Every Cat An Angel and Forever Paws

***

“Reading this collection of feline-inspired essays and life lessons gave me several AHA! moments. Purrs of Wisdom is a refreshing read that packs a deceptively powerful punch and provides helpful recipes for finding your bliss. Ingrid King writes with compassion for those who struggle along as “life happens.” The gifted writer offers nearly poetic insight how to manage the angst, as well as to recognize the “why” behind such things. You’ll want to savor each individual chapter and purr-haps bookmark and revisit those that strike a personal chord. And of course, read aloud to your favorite feline companion!”

- Amy Shojai, bestselling author of more than two-dozen pet books

***

“Purrs of Wisdom is the perfect book for anyone who loves cats – and has an interest in living life to the fullest, with a positive and peaceful outlook – just like a cat does! It spoke to me on several levels and is sure to become a well-thumbed volume as I continue on my life’s journey.”

- Ann Brightman, Managing Editor, Animal Wellness Magazine

***

“In this guide to living spiritually and creatively in a world that isn’t always quite comfortable with either quality, King, a keenly intuitive writer, draws upon the lessons she has learned from her beloved feline friends, weaving them deftly together with her own experiences. ”

- T.J. Banks, Author of Sketch People: Stories Along the Way and Catsong

I live with two cats, because any cat lover will tell you, "You don't own a cat, they own you" and yes they own me! I live with Butchy, a bobtail and a domestic short hair named Cutie Pie. Butchy loves to climb my walls and Cutie loves to fetch...better than most digs I have to say! They are my children now that my girls are grown and out of the house. I love my babies =D
