13 Plus Books About Cats

I thought I'd do a Thursday Thirteen today and share 13 romances with cats in them -- actual cats or housecat shifters, not panthers and lions and cougars, oh my -- but I found a lot more than 13 when I searched Amazon's 'romance' and 'cat' tags combined! I haven't read a lot of these, and some are out of print (but often available used). There are also many anthologies.

(Pictured: Hopper from www.meankitty.com. He is excited about all these books about cats!)

Here's the links:

http://www.amazon.com/Cats-Fancy-Time-Your-Life/dp/0505523973/ (have read, loved it)




















http://www.amazon.com/Cats-Book-Romance-Kate-Ledger/dp/0740738461/ (nonfiction)

And last but not least, my own book:

(Pictured: Sometimes Meankitty and Big D are quite lovey dovey!)

Some of these books are books in a series. There are actually quite a few mystery series about cats, but I only listed one here since it mentioned Cupid in the title. There was one Harlequin Intrigue mystery romance series about Familiars which looked really interesting! And, of course, the many, many Regency Kitten type anthologies, and I didn't list all of those. There might be some romances in the Cat Fantastic anthologies, too.

I also have to say, after double checking with Google just what reading one can find involving cats and romance, who knew there was so much slash CATS fanfiction? Or so many books by Cat Johnson (probably her readers)? That woman is crazy prolific.

So, got any favorite housecat type cat books you love? Read any of these and care to share a quick review in the comments?

No romances, but cats played a major role in my first anthologized short story: "Most Dead Bodies in a Confined Space". It's a comedy. :D
Loved the picture of Mean Kitty and D. Funny how something with some many teeth and claws can seem so cute and cuddly.

All of the cats in my stories can shift, but it's likely time I explore some furry companions of the pet kind. *grin*

My romantic suspense, Haunted Heart, contains a secondary plot centered around the heroine's cat, Snowball. Snowball interrupts Van and Rowena's first romantic interlude, but Van ends up saving the cat when the bad guys set Rowena's house on fire. :)

My favorite cat-related book is called CATS IN THE BELFRY by Doreen Tovey. Outrageously funny and heart-warming, her cats will make you fall in love with the small, warm furry terrors all over again.
