Just when you thought you knew all there was to know about cats comes the ultimate—and unexpected—guide to taking your cat into the wild. Here are cats walking on a leash. Cats hiking on a leash. Cats tramping through snow. Cats camping. Cats kayaking, canoeing, even surfing—yes, cats who love water. When animal writer and active hiker Laura Moss couldn’t find an online resource for hitting the trail with her cat, she created one. AdventureCats.org took off like wildfire, with attention from Wired, the Huffington Post, Outside magazine, BuzzFeed, and much more. Now, the book Adventure Cats—a collection of jaw-dropping photographs, inspiring stories of real-life cats, and all the how-to a cat owner needs—will take readers and their cats well beyond the backyard. Learn how to leash-train a cat. What to do if you encounter wildlife on the trail. Plus, winter safety tips, and how to bring a little bit of the outdoors to an indoor cat. The stories themselves are catnip for animal lovers, from Nanakuli, the one-eyed cat who hangs ten; to Georgie, a four-year-old gray tabby who lives on a sailboat; to Quandary, who not only insists on hiking with her family but also teaches them a valuable lesson: When you follow your cat’s natural tendency to wander, you experience the outdoors at a slower, richer pace. This book will delight every cat person, regardless of whether their pet is inclined to adventure. (Take the quiz at the beginning of the book to find out!)

"Adventures of Poe the Cat" is the third book in the trilogy of fairy tale poems for children, following earlier published books "Chimes and Rhymes for Grown-ups, to be read to Children" and "Abracadabra: Children Bedtime Stories". The Poetry Universe is a forum for poets and writers on Facebook, created in 2014. Members include experienced poets and beginning poets stepping into the poetry community. Our authors span the globe, and some poems are translated into English to reach a wider audience. My goal, as the forum's founder, was to create a group whose spirit consists of total writing freedom and the widespread wings of the universe of thought. We are all trying to advance our poetic skills, visiting the furthest dimensions of Earth and the universe with our poetic pen, the starship doing wonders. Freedom and the wings of the Universe, its unfathomable tides, its enchanting veils, whether of time or love or anything else, are number one in what is guiding this group. The spirit of the Poetry Universe forum is aptly represented in its member's entries. Poems are written across a broad range of subjects as well as in various styles of prose, and originate from all around the world. One aspect of the forum is our "challenges", which have become very popular. After several challenges specifically designed to create poetry for young readers, we devised the idea of publishing books of children's poems that would also delight parents. And thus, "Chimes And Rhymes For Grownups" was the first book with fairy tales born and followed by another one, " Abracadabra: Children Bedtime Stories", with as enchanting fairy tales and many more drawings that can attract children's creativity. "Adventures of Poe the Cat" is the third and final book in the trilogy. Let's give it a warm applause: welcome, dear "Adventures of Poe the Cat"! Our poetry book is rich in excellent, breathtaking poems with spellbound fairy tales that children of all ages will adore. We sincerely hope you enjoy this book as much as we have enjoyed creating it. Your acceptance means to us: 'Mission Accomplished', thank you!~ Thaddeus Hutyra
