Live Simply, So Your Cat May Simply Luxuriate


Okay, maybe your cat doesn’t need a Louis Vuitton bag.  That doesn’t mean he wouldn’t appreciate a cheap knock-off! If you were wondering what the cat high life looks like, wonder no more. I don’t read German, but that doesn’t stop me from seeing that Luxury for Cats is an instant Self Help for Cats classic.

High-end cat purses are only the beginning. You have modern cat architecture, cat couture, camps and spas, diamond collars — even a kitty motorcycle. Not exactly my taste, mind you, but maybe your cat’s. It’s true this kind of excessive luxuriating is not sustainable, even while at the same time it’s a source of inspiration for what the future can bring us all. That is why it is so important that we live simply, so that our cats can simply luxuriate.

Fang Shui: The art of rearranging everything for your cat

fang shui

As the feline elves work furiously to get Time Management for Cats out in paperback form ($6.99 @ Amazon coming in early July), I realized upon review that I had never fully pimped my published work here at Self Help for Cats. So here goes. This also happens to be a sample chapter, since this piece ended up in the book. It’s a story that ran in the San Francisco Chronicle a few years back. Timeless as this essential topic is, they have kept the link up on their site. It’s my first published piece of cat writing, so you could say it’s the story that started it all here at Self Help for Cats.

Americans can’t get enough feng shui these days. Despite this ancient Chinese art form’s esoteric demands on our most personal, private spaces, which, by the way, all need to be torn down and rebuilt, well, we just can’t pass up a concept — a wisdom — that confirms what we already knew: The best response to life’s thorny problems is to redecorate.

My own meager attempt to apply a little feng shui around the domicile hit a few snags named Brody and Panther. Ancient Chinese wisdom may rule your roost, but my housekeeping is largely dictated by a couple of fur dragons on paws. I see now that what determines the order of my life furnishings can more accurately be called fang shui.

Party Time at Self Help for Cats

Image

So the cats won’t stop celebrating since Saturday when we published our first book, Time Management for Cats, at Smashwords.com!  That’s right, I finally overcame Hank’s reluctance about the cover design and just went for it.  After the hours of editing and formatting, the actual upload was easy.

There was a small hiccup with the cover being too small at first, but that seems to be behind us, almost. At the moment, our status into premium retailers like Amazon.com remains pending, but one can get the book right now for $2.99 at Smashwords.com.

It’s a small price to pay for all the fun you will have putting your cat to work the Time Management for Cats way — and celebrating your amazing success! Click here to learn more.
