Human beings love to create problems for themselves. I observe this on a daily basis, as do all my feline friends. They never stop, and one of their favourite tasks is to find more tasks to do. They are always looking for something, as if the life they have isn't enough. They say they're looking for happiness - but do they know what happiness is? We cats know the art of living. We eat when we're hungry, sleep when we're tired. Sitting for hours outside a mouse hole has taught us patience. Staring at an aquarium has brought us meditation. And we know how to please ourselves. Catfulness is a seven-week mindfulness programme for human beings. If they can live their lives more like us, the world will be more serene. As Sigmund Freud said, 'time spent with cats is never wasted.'

Whether they are sunbathing in the garden, snuggled on a blanket, climbing trees together, or keeping each other pristine, this stunning compilation of photographs captures cats at their most adorable.Perfect for cat lovers, or simply lovers, this gorgeous collection is sure to melt any heart.

There are also a few carefully-set-up publicity shots, such as Frank Sinatra on the set of Pal Joey, and Jean Harlow accessorised with a large hat and two Old English sheepdogs. Each image has been researched to identify the breed and wherever possible, the name of the dog, and Catherine Britton has included intriguing details about the location and background to the photograph.
Some are behind the wheel, others mere passengers watching the world go by; some are vociferous navigators, others give passing traffic a piece of their mind; some hang their head out of the window enjoying the breeze, others settle in for a snooze. But wherever they're sitting and whatever they're doing, there is no doubt that dogs in cars are just some of the cutest things that you have ever seen.

Each spread features a photograph or photomontage with an amusing caption and also a paragraph of serious, informative text on pugs - their history, their characteristics, their breed. From bullish pugs to pitiful pugs to pugs who think they're on a flying carpet (but find out that it's fitted), Pugs on Rugs is a fun book of 45 images of the snuggest pugs on rugs that you've ever seen.
