Why yes, I love it when I get read to. And I love to read. I especially love it when we read something good. We won The Dalai Lama’s Cat by David Michie from Cat Wisdom about a month ago. We really liked it.
First, the cat looks like me, even though she’s a girl. However, it’s a great little story told from the cat’s viewpoint (which annoyed someone on Amazon to no end, just so you know. She said that willing suspension of disbelief and all but no one could believe a cat had those kinds of insights.) and has some nice story illustrations on various Buddhist teachings.
For those who think they don’t want to know, it actually took Mom about three chapters to realize that these were Buddhist teaching stories told from the cat’s viewpoint and you don’t have to know Buddhism or be interested in it to enjoy the story of the cat. This is a nice little fiction tail, er tale, to share what life might be like with His Holiness. We highly recommend it. For those who are more interested in Buddhism, but don’t know much about it, Michie’s other book, Buddhism for Busy People is a nice introduction to the subject.
Personally, I think you should get the book so you have a picture of a cat that looks like me.
