My Cat Thinks He’s a Puppy

Must read 🏆

"My Cat Thinks He's a Puppy" is very short in length, making it perfect for 3 to 7-year-olds.

What a coincidence, I have a cat who thinks he's a puppy too! I swear mine barks. Since I have an unusual cat, I was thrilled to read My Cat Thinks He's a Puppy by Patricia Allieri. 


The cat in the story loves to play hide-and-seek, but he always peaks. Wow, you think you could trust a cat not to sneak a peek. My cat loves to chase a ball like the kitty in the story. I wonder if that cat returns them -mine doesn't. 


The kitty in the story does something my cat would never do—get in a pool of water voluntarily. It would be so much fun to see my cat dive in a pool, swim laps, or (even take it one step farther) go surfing or paddle-boarding with me. I've witnessed videos of cats doing just that, but mine seem to suffer from aquaphobia (fear of water).


Cats love to explore, but what they love more is naps. I've adopted several cats, and (depending on the time of day) you'll find them napping in different locations. However, when the humans converge on the couch at night, someone will have a furry friend on their lap. And that means you're there until they wake up. Cats make the rule, don't you know!


My Cat Thinks He's a Puppy by Patricia Allieri is very short in length, making it perfect for Amazon's recommended audience of 3 to 7-year-olds. Your child or class will be eager to share all the fun things their cat does. Maybe you'll get some children to run off to teach their cat how to act like a dog. I would start with "stay" first. All my cats mastered that one on the first try. 


Novel Varius did a fantastic job on the illustrations. They are worthy of 5 stars! The whole book deserves 5 stars!

As an author, I know the importance of book reviews. I've been constructing reviews for a decade and don't plan on stopping anytime soon. FYI: I will be sharing some of the books I read through this site on my blog, Instagram, and Twitter. #KamsPlace Don't forget to tip your waitress! :D

Synopsis

In this beautiful illustrated picture book, Patricia Allieri introduces Puppy-Cat — the cat that acts just like a dog!

Each double-page spread shows Puppy-Cat having fun and getting into mischief, and is designed to get children (and their grown-ups!) giggling.

My cat thinks he’s a puppy,
How strange is that!
He does cute puppy things,
But he’s a big tabby cat!

Cats are known for being independent, particular and maybe a little bit snooty.

But this cat isn’t like other cats. In fact, he’s much more like a puppy.

Puppy-Cat loves to go for a walk, dig about in the dirt and even loves to splash about in the water!

In fact, if it wasn’t for this one little thing, you might not be able to tell he was a cat at all…

Inspired by playful cats everywhere, this book is a perfect addition to any cat lover’s bookshelf and will become a fast favorite for children and adults alike.
