PRAISE FOR Purrs Of Wisdom:

Purrs of Wisdom, by Ingrid King, is a treat for anyone who is enchanted by all things feline! The book is an exploration of lessons on living a joyful and inspired life, learned from the many magical cats who have shared the author’s journey.

I found gifts on every page, but the section titled Lessons from a Maple Tree especially touched my heart. The author talks about taking time out of her busy day to soak up the tree’s magnificent colors when the leaves change in the fall. “Doing nothing without feeling guilty” is a lesson she learned from her cats. Ingrid’s words were a gentle reminder to this fast-paced former New Yorker to look to my own kitties for guidance when my world seems to be spinning a bit too quickly.

Purrs of Wisdom is sure to be a treasured addition to any cat lover’s library!”

- Christine Davis, author of For Every Cat An Angel and Forever Paws


“Reading this collection of feline-inspired essays and life lessons gave me several AHA! moments. Purrs of Wisdom is a refreshing read that packs a deceptively powerful punch and provides helpful recipes for finding your bliss. Ingrid King writes with compassion for those who struggle along as “life happens.” The gifted writer offers nearly poetic insight how to manage the angst, as well as to recognize the “why” behind such things. You’ll want to savor each individual chapter and purr-haps bookmark and revisit those that strike a personal chord. And of course, read aloud to your favorite feline companion!”

- Amy Shojai, bestselling author of more than two-dozen pet books


Purrs of Wisdom is the perfect book for anyone who loves cats – and has an interest in living life to the fullest, with a positive and peaceful outlook – just like a cat does! It spoke to me on several levels and is sure to become a well-thumbed volume as I continue on my life’s journey.”

- Animal Wellness Magazine

I would love to win this. I am a longtime cat lover. As a child I used to dress them up and put them in a baby carriage and push them around. My cats are my best friends. Right now I have Ambrosia, Lexie, Spook, Furby, Peaches, Linus, Tink, and Trouble.

I absolutely love the cover of this book. It’s so full of joy and whimsy. It totally captures the tone of your blog which I enjoy reading each day. May 2013 be filled with more blessings for you and your cat.

Catherine Lee said...

I do believe in the healing power of the purr and I would like to learn more about it. I've read that purring is also used by cats to when they are hurt or stressed. That's an interesting concept to me since I used to think that they only purred when they were happy or contented.
