Just read this to my cat, Milo. He especially liked the pull tabs and the red squeaker. Such a fun silly book to read your children and pets alike; complete with rhyming, flaps on the sides of the book pages, lots of cats shown, and (spoiler) even a dog. ~ 1/5/16

I swear it is for my toddler daughter!!!!!
Marlis signed Athena up for the Stuart Brent Children's Book Club for Christmas and this is January's book. We super enjoyed (typo free!), especially its size, furry tails that don't run away when grabbed as hard as possible, and the cast of characters last page.

This is so much fun with its moveable cats and flaps, could not stop playing with the tabs. The cats are very cute and the back pages with their names is an added bonus. It would be loved by all cat lovers no matter their age!

A lovely sturdy book! We're not really cat people but still enjoy it a lot, I can imagine how much more enjoyable it is for cat lovers! It has so many different breeds of cats.
Got it from the local thrift store, such a great find! Can't wait to get the Dog one.

I saw this book by chance when I was shopping, and the cover immediately caught my eye. I just HAD to read it. It's a very simplistic book - for toddlers and young children - but it is a gorgeous and enjoyable book. There's cute popups, and soft 'furry' areas to touch. I've not been a toddler for a very long time, but I enjoyed this book. The photos of the cats are beautiful, and the 'story' here is cute, along with a few silly surprises along the way. If you have a small child who loves cats, t ...more

This is my favorite van fleet so far. Still one of the toughest movable books ever and cute, cute, cute. The cover reminds me of this one time I went to camp and left my sisters in charge of my fish. He died and when the next roll of pictures came back I knew why. Our cat willie had his paw in the fish tank..... Hmmmm. Ages 1+

This is one of my kids favorite books. It's very sturdily build and designed for a pull-tab book, and has lasted through three kids. In addition to the lift-a-flaps and pull-tabs there are texture patches for little fingers to feel.

recommended age: 12months+
