8 Books That Remind Us How Much We Love Our Pets

Our pets can be barking rabble-rousers, toilet paper mess-makers, and cuddly balls of fur all at once. Here’s a list of fabulous pet books that remind us how much we love our cats and dogs!

1. Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog by John Grogan

Our pets may not be the most well-behaved at all times, but they are still loveable despite thier occasional disobedience.

2.  How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You by The Oatmeal

Cats aren't always straight forward about their feelings. The Oatmeal reminds us that sometimes leaving a decapitated bird head on the living room floor is a sign of affection.

6. Love That Dog by Sharon Creech

Sometimes a boy’s biggest inspiration is man’s best friend. Just like Jack in Love That Dog, our devotion to our furry friends can inspire us to create works of art.

7. You Need More Sleep: Advice from Cats by Francesco Marciuliano

Good advice might be hard to come by—but our feline friends always have the answer. “Always stay at least 30 feet from a loved one.” “Keep changing where and when you like to be touched.” “Be Adorable.” See? You’re learning to think like a kitty already.

8. Coraline by Neil Gaiman

Sometimes, our feline friends can be aloof rapscallions--such is the case with Cat in Neil Gaiman’s award-winning children’s book Coraline. Even when they’re talking long baths, pretending not to notice us, or in Cat’s case, making sarcastic comments, we love our fiercely independent cat friends anyway.
