Seduction is just the practice of artful stretching. Never let people know how fast you are. Appear slow in all things, and less is expected of you. When someone is on the computer too long, help them by distracting them, or walk lightly on their keyboard. So advises Stanley, a remarkably astute cat with a keen eye for the important things in life. Perhaps you don't have time for yoga, can't afford therapy, or wouldn't dare cry to mother. If so, let Stanley be your guide. Lessons from Stanley the Cat offers wise and witty maxims from Stanley himself, translated by his doting psychotherapist (human) parent, Jennifer Freed. Whether you're a cat lover or prefer companions of the canine variety, Stanley's warmth and insight are sure to brighten even the grayest days.

Playful spaniels completely covered with snow—“There’s no such thing as ‘bad’ weather.” Two happy dogs sleeping, one on top of the other— “Sometimes you need a pillow. Sometimes you are the pillow." The bulldog who’s headfirst in her bowl—“Every meal is THE BEST MEAL EVER.” Cynthia L. Copeland has a gift for discovering those sorts of simple, timeless lessons. She did it when her children were younger with Really Important Stuff My Kids Have Taught Me. Now she distills all-new wisdom from her lifelong love of dogs. Really Important Stuff My Dog Has Taught Me is tender, funny, warm, and utterly inspiring. Pairing an irresistible photograph with just the right sentiment, every page delivers a life lesson that appeals as much to our hearts as our minds. It reminds us again and again of what’s important, like love: “Be there when others need you.” Compassion: “Even the smallest act of kindness matters.” Perseverance: “Keep going until you find your way home.” A healthy sense of self: “Make it squeak until someone pays attention.” Living in the present moment: “Scratch where it itches, when it itches.” And that happiness is a choice: “Leap higher than you have to.”

Step aside, Pusheen! With his sassy remarks, judging stare, and hilariously sinister antics, Catsass is the new kitty-du-jour. From French graphic designer Claude Combacau comes a book of sassy, cat-themed coloring pages, mazes, and puzzles with directions like: "Put the pieces of the $3,000 vase Catsass just destroyed back together. Three odd pieces are parts of other ruined objects because you don't deserve to have it easy." Combacau's "Catsass" cartoons about a lewd, crude, mischief-making feline have been featured on Bustle, Bored Panda, and elsewhere. These cartoons remind us that, no matter how they capture our hearts and intrigue us to no end, cats are mostly self-serving creatures. Yes, your particular cat may be awesome and sweet, but this does not make up for the vast number of cats whose favorite activity is knocking stuff over.--Bustle

Drawing on his time living in Asia among spiritual teachers, he takes us on the contemplative, humorous, and poignant journey of saving these cats, only to find it was they who saved him by revealing a world of meaning beyond his unrealized Hollywood dreams.
