This review is part of the (Fire & Ice Book Tours) Humor Book Tour.


My rating:  5  of  5  stars

(by Goodreads)

Catnap often. Don’t be a stalker unless food is involved. Despite the rumor, it is okay to be curious! A Cat Taught Me That is filled with humorous advice and the wisdom of elder cats that includes information on how to get more out of life, and how to avoid common pitfalls along the way. Cat lovers will enjoy the adorable photographs and cute illustrations throughout.

Celebrity cat ‘Awesome Louie’ provides insight with his sage advice in his “Mewsings” column. Short essays from the cat-lady author will bring smiles to the faces of readers who may have already learned “Not All That Glitters is Gold” and “To Be Kissed By a Cat” can have unintended consequences.


Genre(s):  Humour, Cats

Series:  n.a.

Length:  42 pages



I’m Louie and I’ve been told I have a problem with cat treats. Of course, a problem is in the eye of the beholder. In my eyes, loving cat treats isn’t a problem unless I run out of them.


My Opinion

This story introduces you to Awesome Louie, a charming rescue cat. He is witty, adorable and – he provides some insights in a cat’s mind. I cannot tell you more about the story as it would spoil the fun of reading it yourself.

With A Cat Taught Me That, Charlotte Gerber presents us with a humorous titbits from a tomcat’s point of view as well as some anecdotes from Charlotte. This little book is funny, has a pleasant flow, comprises Louie’s mewsings as well as some photos and drawings. Charlotte Gerber and Awesome Louie excellently combined humour and facts on feline behaviour. I had a great time reading A Cat Taught Me that. It is a fast and entertaining read. Moreover, you support a good cause by buying this ‘pawsome’ little gem.

Highly recommended!

  2. Hi Karen! Thank you for hosting my tour stop today! I love the question you posed about making the book into a movie! Louie, of course, would love to star in it as himself. I think he fancies himself as a bit of a “Garfield” character. ;3
