Is it real? Of course not. But through this wonderfully fanciful and humorous premise, the wisdom of cats and modern humankind meet. Full of lessons and allegorical tales, The Wisdom of Yo Meow Ma is written as if an ancient cat sage were teaching future generations of kittens, yet the messages for their human counterparts are clear.
On the surface there are dozens of wicked little winks, bogus footnotes, pseudoscientific facts, and cat-oriented messages. But at heart, it is an uplifting spiritual guide for living a better life, solving the problems of modern society, and skirting the moral quagmires that can pull people down.
