I generally love books about cats or from cats perspective and this series is very enjoyable. I remember reading the first one and being surprised about how it was both informative as funny. The second one wasn't bad, but did resonate less with me. And now I have finally picked read the third, which was again a treat to read! Sure, of course some things are exaggerated a bit but the overal lessons about mindfulness are intertwined nice with the stories and adventures of His Holiness Cat. The book in itself is relaxing and the character building through out the series is fun to follow. I'm not sure what a fourth of this series should be about, but I wouldn't mind reading more from these characters!

Lovely, lovely book. Third in the series and written from the perspective of Rinpoche, the Dalai Llama's cat. Funny, cheeky and very entertaining, we follow Rinpoche's journey to becoming a more "mindful" cat through the power of meow.
