Well, if the answer to these questions is a resounding ‘YES!’ I have a cure for you. It comes in the form of an easy-to-give gift book.

Mary Anne Miller, FelineXpress.com

I’d Rather Be a Cat proves undeniably that cats are THE best pets in the world. Even my Scottish terrier accepts the superiority of cats; what better endorsement can there be than that? This little book says it all with purrfect photos accompanying the humorous quips of Allia Zobel Nolan.”
—Marci Kladnik, author of Altering the Future for Ferals

“A very sweet and warmly funny book full of the kind of wisdom that cat lovers will appreciate. Each page is also graced by a picture of that perfect creature—a cat!”
—Clea Simon, author of the Dulcie Schwartz Mysteries

“Many years ago, my predecessor, Simon II, wrote an article for CATS Magazine called Cats vs Dogs: A Continuing Controversy. Now, one of our favorite authors, Allia Zobel Nolan, has expanded that idea, canvassing cats around the world to share why they'd rather be cats than dogs. With charming illustrations, this little book is just large enough for a feline to sit on, holding a page open to something they want to share.”
Simon Teakettle III, co-author of the award-winning MEWsings/Musings

I’d Rather Be a Cat is the hysterically funny product of Alla Zobel Nolan’s fertile imagination. Cat photos that nearly speak for themselves populate the book along with Nolan’s brilliant ‘quotes.’ Nolan is the woman—cat woman—to bring this to the public. This book is a great gift for every cat owner.”
Darlene Arden, Certified Animal Behavior Consultant, author of The Complete Cat’s Meow,DarleneArden.com

“Well, here it is! The purr-fect little present for Valentine's Day that you kitties can present to your human! This book will end the controversy once and for all as to who is better, and it will cease the time-wasting activity of the humans focusing on each other for Valentine's Day and put their focus right back where it belongs—on you!”
Cody, Cat Chat with Caren and Cody, OPCatChat.blogspot.com

Dog Confessionsand its counterpart I’d Rather Be a Cat are humorist Allia Zobel-Nolan’s latest attempts to give canines their day and felines their say. Comically told through beautiful pictures and quips from pets worldwide, Dog Confessions and I’d Rather Be a Cat (where cats are lauded in the aggregate), would make the perfect Valentine’s Day, hostess and beginning reader gifts in their charming, hardcover, mini book format.”
