Books Featuring Cats in the Story – National Cat Day

Today is National Cat Day and if you know me then you know how much I love my cat, Sherlock. So here is a post dedicated to that diva and some of my favourite books with cats in the story. I always love seeing cats in stories they often become some of my favourite aspects of the story.

If you are like me and love seeing cats in the story then here are some recommendations:

Chilling Effect by Valerie Valdes – A found family, space heists and psychic space cats!

The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa – A beautiful story of a journey between a man and his cat.

The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare – Jem adopts Church the cat and he appears in several of the series.

If Cats Disappeared From the World Genki Kawamura – This was an interesting story with lots to think about.

The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan – While Bast is technically an Egyptian God she takes the form of a cat and is the guardian of the MCs.

The Empire of Gold by S.A. Chakraborty – Technically Mishmish is a Shedu but he’s basically a bif cat wings so it counts, right?

Diana and the Island of No Return by Aisha Saeed – Diana’s best friend, Sakina has a snow leopard which in my opinion counts as a cat.

Jinxed by Amy McCulloch – A book where the MC has a baku which is essentially a AI in the form of a cat. Sassy and clever I loved him.

Moonchild by Aisha Bushby – A MG Arabian Nights retelling with a jinn companion who takes the form of a cat

Do tell me what books you loved with cats in the stories! I’m always looking for more recommendations!

  1. The Travelling Cat Chronicles is my **favourite book in existence** and it messed me up so badly when I finished it. I sobbed for HOURS afterwards. I even held my cat and sobbed. Then my partner had to wake up at 4am and console me because I was such a mess. I still haven’t been able to write a proper review for it because every time I start to write it, I also start sobbing again. Omg, such a phenomenal novel. I adored the themes of Buddhism in the book especially; really resonated with my Buddhist heart and soul, which in a way made the experience even more intense.
