The Book: Do Cats have Souls?
Why Cats?
Do Cats Have Souls?

Every cat lover has gone through this:

Your beloved cat dies, and you grieve – maybe you even cry, and you excuse yourself to friends – “I’m so silly – she was only a pet.”

But was she just a pet? Or was she a deep, complex individual creature like we are?

Do cats think, feel, have free will as we do? Do they have souls as deep as ours? Do they love us back?

And while we’re at it – do we humans have a soul? What is a soul?

These are the questions I ask in this book of essays, stories and thoughts about love, life, the soul and cats.

Why the Soul?
The Soul

“Do Cats Have Souls” is really three books in one, all interwoven:

– A thoughtful essay about the human soul;

– A personal essay about cats and their souls,

and, just because I like cats,

– 12 cat tales, from the legends of Bastet and Muhammed’s cat to a cat horror tale and a cat murder mystery; from a cat’s Christmas present to a cat’s struggle to make sense of life, not to mention love stories that never would have happened, had it not been for cats.

We have begun looking for US publishing partners and will keep you updated!

What are they staring at?

Dogs are easy to understand. Goldfish no one has to understand. Birds are pretty straight-forward. Whales are simple creatures.
Cats are a mystery.

What is it about cats?

We love cats because we see something in them that we can’t find in ourselves.
Or can we?

Is there more to this life?

Like God, love and Justice, we cannot prove the soul exists, but we cat understand life without it. When I look into the night sky, I have a feeling there is something more to us than meets the eye. My way of saying this is: “I believe in the soul.”

Is there more to … us?

What does it mean to be human? To find out, ask yourself this question: What is your soul tryin to tell you?
