10 Best-Selling Books Every Cat Lover Should Read
I love cats and I love books. So, why not mix these two together in a blog post? The result was this list of the best-selling cat books of 2015 that I put together with the information I gathered from Amazon’s Best Sellers List in Cat Care. Humor seems to dominate the list, but surprisingly (or not), the #1 is a coloring book for adults – coloring books seem to be a big trend nowadays.

I’ve read I could pee on this and How to tell if your cat is plotting to kill you and found both books hilarious. My top book to read from this list is a A street cat named Bob because I love reading books based on true stories and so I’m really curious about that book. I’ve read two books about true dog stories (Marley and Me and From Baghdad with Love: A Marine, The War, And A Dog Named Lava), but curiously I haven’t read any cat books based on a true stories.
Have you read any of these books?
