From a book packed with whimsically imagined cats (kitty unicorns, anyone?) to a guide featuring cat-like yoga moves, see what books for cat lovers we’re obsessed with right now.

Yuko Higuchi’s Cats & Other Creatures

Yuko Higuchi’s Cats & Other Creatures.

If, like me, you’re a fan of anthropomorphic animals, you’ll love this collection of surreal artwork by Japanese artist Yuko Higuchi. The book features 24 stunning works of art — fantastical felines (cat unicorns!), furry astronauts, fungi and all kinds of other beautifully bizarre images. It’s a hardcover book and also a postcard book — each page is removable for framing or mailing. Published by Laurence King Publishing.

Yoga With Cats

Yoga with Cats.

Yoga with Cats.

Cats are true yoga masters in the way they stretch and move. Inspired by her own cat, Taku, author and yogi Masako Miyakawa created this book featuring simple, cat-like stretches and poses. It starts with simple moves like Banzai! Arms Up! and Happy Cat, then moves on to more challenging poses like Hoist a Leg and Go Upside Down, giving the reader a full and fun yoga program of 31 moves. It may be a lighthearted take on traditional yoga practice, but it’s a fun way to connect with your feline friends. Published by Nippan IPS.
