What People Are Saying About This Book

Purrs of Wisdom banner

Purrs of Wisdom by Ingrid King, is a treat for anyone who is enchanted by all things feline!  The book is an exploration of lessons on living a joyful and inspired life, learned from the many magical cats who have shared the author’s journey.

I found gifts on every page, but the section titled “Lessons from a Maple Tree” especially touched my heart. The author talks about taking time out of her busy day to soak up the tree’s magnificent colors when the leaves change in the fall. “Doing nothing without feeling guilty” is a lesson she learned from her cats. Ingrid’s words were a gentle reminder to this fast-paced former New Yorker to look to my own kitties for guidance when my world seems to be spinning a bit too quickly.

Purrs of Wisdom is sure to be a treasured addition to any cat lover’s library!

Reading this collection of feline-inspired essays and life lessons gave me several AHA! moments. Purrs of Wisdom is a refreshing read that packs a deceptively powerful punch and provides helpful recipes for finding your bliss. Ingrid King writes with compassion for those who struggle along as “life happens.” The gifted writer offers nearly poetic insight how to manage the angst, as well as to recognize the “why” behind such things. You’ll want to savor each individual chapter and purr-haps bookmark and revisit those that strike a personal chord. And of course, read aloud to your favorite feline companion!

    Holy smokes! I am incredibly disappointed to not have known about this tour earlier 🙁 I’m really behind in my e-mail and starting to catch up. Just learned that Ingrid lives very close to me in northern Virginia. I just contacted her separately about this. Thanks, Joy, for letting us know about Ingrid!!

  5. Ruthi says:

    At present, I do not have a kitty cat but have had them as companions in the past. Currently, my dog Tidbit wouldn’t approve of purry critters in the house! If I win this gem of a book, Purrs of Wisdom, I will gift it to a dear co-worker and friend who has a very special cat companion.

    No, I don’t own any pets. Sad to say that I live alone and cannot look after pets 🙁
