My rating: 4/5

Buy this book: | Waterstones



Anat Levit never considered herself a cat lover, but when her life was thrown into upheaval, she found herself adopting one cat at the suggestion of her daughters, and then six more in quick succession. She recounts how each cat came into her life, their distinct demeanours and curiosities and their ability to live fully in each moment.

Anat falls in love with the furry creatures, whose escapades and tribulations lead her into deep friendships, difficult decisions, and unexpected insight into her relationships. The cats love her in the way she wishes she could love others: intensely yet independently, without renouncing their unique personalities. By caring for these cats, Anat comes to a deeper understanding of her connections with former lovers, her daughters and her own body. In Seven Cats I Have Loved, she delves into the feline mind with sensitivity, gentleness, and compassion, while also revealing a moving human story.



A really beautiful documentation of a lady who dedicated all of her love to her cats. She put them before everything else, they were her world and this shared some really heartwarming stories and memories that she had. You really get to sense the connections she had with her cats and it was a really enjoyable read. Nothing too deep, a really nice easy read which will put a smile on your face.

Filled with lessons of love, trust and heartbreak. It is sad, but shows us how we learn from experiences and learn to see the light when there’s heartbreak.
