Cat Love Letters
Blaze Star's Review of Cat Love Letters and Catty Book Suggestions
This is Blaze Star Cat, head cat of Hummingbird Hill. It's been a while since I posted. I am so pleased that my new little protégé, Pepper, has done such a good job with her pages and I thought you'd enjoy hearing about the fabulous book that I just read. It would make a purr-fectly wonderful gift for the feline lover on your list.
Cat Love Letters by Leigh W. Rutledge is for all the romantics out there, whether they have two legs or four. This collection of correspondence of felines in love made me purr with delight and I must confess that I had to wipe my eyes a few times.
This book or one of the others such as the one by the Yorkshire Veterinarian, James Herriot, that I recommend, would make excellent gift for any cat lovers. My lady also enjoyed all of these stories. She's such an wise human.
If You Love Felines, you simply must read this Book!
Cat Love Letters Book
I just loved this book about six pairs of cats in love. The letters are laid out in scrapbook fashion and each cat has his or her own stationary and script. I was very amused by Nefertiti and Boo and was extremely touched by J.B. White Sock's search for his beloved Shasta.
I can't believe that a human wrote it. It's expresses our secret life so well. The human has to be a ghostwriter for one of the cats in the book.
You must read Cat Love Letters and come back and let me know what you think in the Ghost Writer Duel below.
Collected Correspondence of Cats in Love
The couples who wrote this interesting correspondence are:
Tonya and Peaches - a very young cat and an older, gentleman Tom
Snowball and Spitfire - A handsome, loving Tom and a self-centered little Spitfire
Shasta and J.B. White Socks - Star crossed lovers who are cruelly separated
Nefertiti and Boo - A couple who would rather fight than share
Mindy and D.W.Y. - The odd couple
Mabel and Grouch - The couple who shows that age has nothing to do with love.
Somewhere Out There
Surely J.B. White Socks and Shasta were singing this lovely song. I hope you enjoy listening while you view the rest of this lens.
This Could be Shasta
My Favorite Couple
Shasta and J.B. White Socks warmed my heart with their undying love. J.B. White Socks is quite a Tom. If he weren't so dedicated to his lovely Shasta, I wouldn't mind him coming to take Dax's place in our house. Oh, to have someone so devoted to you that he would search the world to find you. Someone who would write (And I quote J.B.), "Since then I have spent my life, my every waking hour, in search of my beloved Shasta. I will not rest until I find her!" What a Tom!
This Could be J. B. White Socks
Blue Ping Pong Ball
I really like to play with ping pong balls, just like J.B. and Shasta. Here are some that are blue with other colors, too. Dax always hits them under the couch, so it's best to get more than one. I wanted to put the ones I picked out, but the lady said that I am only allowed to put books... Rats, I really want those sparkly balls!
Ghost Writer Duel
Do you think that Leigh W. Rutledge is a ghost writer for the cats?
Definitely, only a cat could write those letters.
Author Leigh W. Rutledge
This delightful human shares his house with thirty of our kind. I knew he had some help with this book. According to him, he patterned the characters in Cat Love Letters after some of the real cats that share his home.
This is a wise and loving human with a kind heart. Diary of a Cat is another of his books. The orange cat on the cover could be that mischievous Dax Cat's twin! He also fancies himself an author.

Some Cat Toys Like in Cat Love Letters
I found some of the toys from the love letters on Amazon. Maybe if Nefertiti and Boo had known about ordering there, they wouldn't have fought so much. Duh!
