The Feline Lover Bookworm: 8 Books Featuring Cats

Cats are not just loved as pets and companions, but they are also adored in the literary world — appearing as heroes, antagonists, or simply just their adorable selves. True enough, a good book always sounds like a good idea. But a good book featuring a kitty always makes any story a little bit better.

Here is a compilation of feline-themed books you can read while cuddling your cat or convince you to adopt a fur baby or two.

The Cat Who Saved Books by Sôsuke Natsukawa

When bookish high school student Rintaro Natsuki is about to close the secondhand bookstore he inherited, a talking cat named Tiger appears with an unusual request: help in saving books with him. Now, Tiger and Rintaro must save lonely books left unread and unloved and liberate them from their neglectful owners.

The Cat Who Saved Books is a captivating, heartwarming, and whimsical modern fable about the power of books to heal.

I Am A Cat by Natsume Sōseki

A chronicle of an unloved, unwanted, wandering kitten who spends all his time commenting on the follies of the humans around him, Sōseki Natsume’s comic masterpiece written from 1904 through 1906 that satirizes the foolishness of upper-middle-class Japanese society during the Meiji era.

Richly allegorical and delightfully readable, I Am Cat is a timeless classic Japanese literature masterpiece that is sure to be enjoyed by readers all over the world for years to come.

Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T. S. Eliot

In a collection of fantastic and light poems, T. S. Elliot explores feline psychology and sociology, intended as gifts for the children of his friends and the poet’s grandchildren. It also served as the basis for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s 1981 wildly popular musical Cats.

Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats is a collection of humorous and amusing poems, describing the different kinds of cats: irascible, indifferent, superior, needy, cool, and lovable.

She and Her Cat by Makoto Shinkai

Makoto Shinkai, the Japanese animator, filmmaker, author, and manga artist behind the 2016 anime film Your Name, writes a collection of four interrelated, stream-of-conscious short stories in which four women and their feline companions explore the frailty of life, pain of isolation, and limits of communication.

With clever narration alternating between the cats and their owners, She and Her Cat is a whimsical short story unlike any other—offering a unique and sly commentary on human foibles and our desire for connection.

If Cats Disappeared from the World by Genki Kawamura

When the unnamed narrator learns he only has months to live, he sets out to tackle his bucket list. Estranged from his family, living alone with only his cat Cabbage for company, he was unprepared for the doctor’s diagnosis. Then one day, the Devil appears with a special offer: in exchange for making one thing in the world disappear, he can have one extra day of life.

If Cats Disappeared from the World is a beautifully crafted story of change, grief, and loss—a journey of one man’s journey to discover what really matters in modern life.

The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss
