Women Who Still Love Cats Too Much provides fun insights into establishing whether you are a cat codependent, like the author, Allia Zobel Nolan, proudly asserts herself to be. Nolan speaks, in the introduction to this lively and entertaining guide to the traits of feline obsessives, of having “become more mature,” of coming to understand the dynamics of her obsession better, and of making “… more concerted efforts to course correct. NOT!” since the publication of her previous book on the matter, Women Who Love Cats Too Much, which followed on her best-selling 101 Reasons Why a Cat Is Better Than a Man. Nolan is an accomplished author of almost 200 works for adults and children, and if our feline pets could read, I’m sure that they’d enjoy them just as much (or even more?) than their human companions have shown themselves to do.

Nolan’s partnership with the highly successful cartoonist, Nicole Hollander (most famous for her daily comic strip Sylvia, which was syndicated to newspapers nationally by Tribune Media Services, and which can be seen on her blog, BadGirl Chats) has, in the present instance, resulted in a hilarious sequel, consisting of the listing of various easily identifiable characteristics of women who find their cats much more appealing and attention-grabbing than they do their two-legged companions. Just a few examples of such notable features are: “You know your cat is manipulating you more than usual when ... She yawns and you hire an architect to build her a kitty activity gym” and “You know you’d go to any lengths to please your puddy when ... You stand in line for six hours to get her an autographed copy of Grumpy Cat.”

The close working relationship between Nolan and Hollander is borne out by the humorous interplay between the two creators of this refreshing look at the somewhat neurotic connection between the female ‘head’ of the household and the four-legged supremo kittissimo. The cartoons are all in full color, and the repartee expressed by the wide array of humans and cats featured therein is delightfully true to life to anyone who knows and lives with cats.

In short, Women Who Still Love Cats Too Much is a delightful work, which deserves its place on any cat lover’s shelf (and perhaps in their guest room as well, as a key to the madness that any guest visiting a cat-dominated home might detect on first venturing into such a sanctified and blessed domain).
