Publisher's Summary

Featuring a delightful cast of characters and timeless Buddhist wisdom, and with His Holiness' compassion pervading every chapter, The Dalai Lama's Cat is simply enchanting. Not so much fly-on-the-wall as cat-on-the-sill, this is the warmhearted tale of a small kitten rescued from the slums of New Delhi who finds herself in a beautiful sanctuary with sweeping views of the snowcapped Himalayas.
In her exotic new home, the Dalai Lama's cat encounters Hollywood stars, Buddhist masters, Ivy League professors, famous philanthropists, and a host of other people who come visiting His Holiness. Each encounter offers a fresh insight into finding happiness and meaning in the midst of a life of busyness and challenge.
Drawing us into her world with her adorable but all-too-flawed personality, the Dalai Lama's cat discovers how instead of trying to change the world, changing the way we experience the world is the key to true contentment.
This audiobook also contains six delightful tracks taking you through guided stretches and sits, including:

How to sit when you meditate
Standing roll down and breath counting
Paw raise and purring
Threading the needle and body awareness
Cat pose and visualisation technique
Shoulder bridge and analytical meditation
Paw stretch, tranquillity and affirmations

Even better than Michie's nonfiction Buddhist book

I had extremely low expectations for this book but maybe I was just in the right mood because this was great fun. The Dalai Lama is coming back from the airport when he spots an injured kitten who is literally being thrown in the trash. He has the cat rescued and the cat (who narrates) proceeds to meditate beside the Dalai Lama, meet visiting celebrities and learn Buddhist teachings from the Tibetan leader himself and his disciples. I liked the lessons explained this more than in Michie’s nonfiction books, which are good, too. Grade: A-

The narration is very good by the author.

Best Listen so far this year!

Where does The Dalai Lama's Cat + The Dalai Lama's Cat: Guided Meditations rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book captures your heart and your mind. I have read all 3 now and my 13 yr old son just finished this one too and immediately downloaded the 2nd. We love the brilliant narrative of this little Himalayan cat, who is on a path through life similar to all creatures - and surprisingly, we can relate!

Who was your favorite character and why?

While there is no question my son and I both love the little Snow Lion, he feels an affinity for Sam and I do love Mrs. Trencci.

Which scene was your favorite?

I loved how she came to meet up with her Tom Cat - needing to overcome her aversions to non familiar places.

If you could take any character from The Dalai Lama's Cat + The Dalai Lama's Cat: Guided Meditations out to dinner, who would it be and why?

The Dalai Lama - as I am sure it would be - cativating!
