The Dalai Lama's Cat by David Michie

The Dalai Lama's Cat  was from Net Galley, and I wish I had not let it languish in my TBR que for so long because it was a genuine pleasure from beginning to end.

This charming Himalayan relates the way she found her way into the Dalai Lama's household and into the hearts of all, from the Dalai Lama and his staff, to the owner of the local cafe and many of its patrons.

Snow Lion, Rinpoche, or Bhodhicattva, this feline goes by many names (descriptive, endearing, or punning) and is privy to many interviews and discussions with some very famous people.  She charmed everyone, myself included.

A whimsical and educational little book about a remarkable little cat, who arrived as a kitten and stayed for sixteen years

  1. Sounds like a delightful read! I just checked our local library but unfortunately it isn't in yet. I did put a hold on David Michie's Meditations for Manic Motorist's which sounds like something I would find most helpful!

  2. I love books about cats! You probably knew that. :) Will have to look this one up.

  3. OK, troublemaker. I just ordered a copy. ;)

  4. Kailana - I think you'd like it!

    JennyPennyPoppy -It really was a charming book and a such a sweet way to explain some Buddhist precepts. I'm going to check into some of Michie's other works.

    Nancy - I hope you love it! I may order a hard copy and read it to the grands.

  5. I did love it! Kiddo is reading it, too. It's a keeper. Thanks for the recommendation!
