The Dalai Lama's Cat by David Michie
“The Dalai Lama’s Cat” by David Michie is book 1 of 5 in a series that shares inspirational life lessons which include humor and make you think. This book is about a cat rescued from the streets to find himself part of the family of the Dalai Lama. It is an entertaining book that shares the fictional story of the cat with inspiration lessons on how to live life. It is a great book in my opinion that is appropriate for any age. It’s takes you on a trip into what it might have been like to live as a cat with the Dalai Lama while at the same time weaving in simple lessons and advice about to how live life and treat others. This book takes you through the fictional story of a Cat, of many names, who rises from fate as a stray on the streets of the big city to become part of the family of Great Dalai Lama. The book includes humor, good advice on how to treat others, and a perspective on how to deal with life’s ups and downs. I thought the author did a creative job by writing the book from the viewpoint and perspective of what an animal (cat) might or could be thinking. As I read the book, I was taken on a journey filled with different emotions and taught some good lessons on the way! This book caught my eye because I like animals and have had many pet cats of my own in my lifetime that have all taught me a few lessons as well! The author has several other books in the series along the same line that I would recommend exploring as well. Whether you are an animal lover or not you will enjoy “The Dalai Lama’s Cat” published by Hay House Books copyright 2012. It is 240 pages long.
