Seduction is just the practice of artful stretching.
Never let people know how fast you are. Appear slow in all things, and less is expected of you. When someone is on the computer too long, help them by distracting them, or walk lightly on their keyboard. 

So advises Stanley, a remarkably astute cat with a keen eye for the important things in life. Perhaps you don't have time for yoga, can't afford therapy, or wouldn't dare cry to mother. If so, let Stanley be your guide. Lessons from Stanley the Cat offers wise and witty maxims from Stanley himself, translated by his doting psychotherapist (human) parent, Jennifer Freed. Whether you're a cat lover or prefer companions of the canine variety, Stanley's warmth and insight are sure to brighten even the grayest days.

“Receiving Stanley’s life lessons through Jennifer Freed is like getting mountain spring water through a crystal pipe – nothing is purer."


- David Millikin North American Bureau Chief


“Stanley reminds me that in order to be truly fulfilled, I need not go any further than the world just at the edge of the whiskers on my nose.”


- Kelly Carlin-McCall, Huffington Post Blogger


“Stanley the Cat is Jennifer Freed’s loving tribute to her feline companion of many years, wherein she enumerates in so many ways the qualities that sustained a deeply meaningful and long lasting relationship, qualities that can shape the very best in us and in those with whom we want most to share our lives. There is much wisdom here, rendered with simplicity, humor, and grace."


- Christopher Lloyd


“Not since Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats have I so delighted in the wisdom and humor of the feline race. Stanley is irresistibly smart and true.”


- Lise Haines, author of Girl in the Arena.
