About the Book

“When Cats Nap They Dream About Taking Over the World” is a memorable and laugh-out-loud collection of children’s experiences with their feline pets. Children between the ages of four and thirteen freely and colorfully expound on such topics as why cats are lovable, what cats think of their owners and veterinarians, what cats make of domestic family life, and what a typical cat’s personality is really like. But the children also proceed further into their imaginations and speculate about good books for cats, the proper school curriculum for all cats, what their four-legged friends dream about when they nap, and a cat’s relationship to spirituality and religion. Ultimately, the children tell us with considerable passion and good humor how having a cat has influenced and shaped their upbringing. Here are just a few of the hundred of choice offerings: “All cats believe that people are the finicky ones.” (Ryan, aged ten) “If cats had their country, then everything would be purr-fect!” (Colette, aged eleven) “Cats don’t really wear clothes. . . . They prefer to be naked.” (Carey, aged eight) “What do cats believe should be done to dogs? Deportation to North Korea!” (Jared, aged thirteen) “Every cat needs private time so they can contemplate their life.” (Stephanie, aged twelve)
