    1. Great book about how to treat a cat if you want them to be your best friend! Really practical stuff in here (admire their claws from afar!) that's given in a simple, breezy way.This book tells me the illustrations were made in Photoshop using the Lasso tool. Having used Photoshop once or twice in my life, I am more than a bit impressed. The illustrations are primarily primary (ha!) colors in bold, simple shapes with few textures thrown in for good measure.Recommended as a read-together for famil [...]


    2. Imagine A Cat Like that as the superior flipside to I Don’t Want a Cool Cat! This time, the cat himself is naming what he wants in an owner—and he’s not nearly as shallow as the young girl who doesn’t want cat who’s too needy or too fat. The cat in this story just wants a person who’s caring and loving, and knows the right way to pet and hold a feline. Gentle messages about cat care are imparted throughout.




    3. It was cute and awesome. It was incredible and funny. The pictures were bright and colorful. (According to my first graders, verbatim.)


    4. No rating because while the subject matter of this book was well treated (a cat describing her perfect human companion) the colors and artwork were truly off putting. Mustard yellow children, orange tress with purple and blue flowers, and oddly shaped, cobalt blue people figures were just too much for my eyes.


    5. Nice non-preachy list of good cat owner behaviors. I am working on appreciating the art; I'm not wild about some of the color choices (the yellow faced boy on the orange background, for instance: I know it's supposed to be as jarring to look at as yelling in the ear is to hear, but still), and the shapes more primitive than I prefer. BUT there are some really perfect details, like the look on the cat's face and his elongated body as he's being dragged around, and the tip of the tail on the "Read [...]


    6. My five-year-old son picked this book out from the library this week. He likes cats; we have three. So much about this book is wonderful. Cats really don't want much. They just want attention when they want attention, and they want to be left alone when they want to be left alone. And it is not hard to tell which time is which. As the cat was describing his purr-fect friend, my son was delighted to realize that he was a purr-fect friend to his cat, Molly. He was pleased with himself, and I was p [...]


    7. I've gifted both this book and Wahman's other picture book, Don't Lick the Dog, to my niece, who's three. She adores both books, asking her mother to read them to her all the time. Perhaps more importantly, she's taken the lessons in the books and applied them to the way she interacts with other people's pets, respectfully curling her fingers to have a dog sniff her before petting, and always remembering to ask the dog's owner if it's OK first. That's the mark of a highly successful children's b [...]


    8. A cat Like That is a average book, I think that both the images and the text are very to the point. I would like to see more text and more of a story to this, but it is very short and says positive things about a best friend. I guess it would be a good way of teaching children to be good friends and too look for this things in their friends. The illustrations were very in your face and colorful it even included darker colors for the dark brown cat.


    9. preschool - grade 2Ahhh, this is an ode to cats everywhere. Forgive me, I wax romantic about this lovely (did I just use the word lovely?) book about cats. Striking graphic art, and true to life story line, all done with the perspective of a child in mind. So true - the catnip, the daily baths, the scratching, but not too muchI really enjoyed this book which feels real, with snappy artwork that doesn't feel overproduced.


    10. Super cute! I'm such a sucker for cat stuff, and think this is a book that all parents should read to their kids (or have their kids read); to help them be a little more gentle with feline companions.I have a naughty little niece who likes to treat my kitty, Peach, like a dog. Hopefully, this will make her aware of some of the things our kitty friends look for in a perfect friend. Loved this book, even as a 24 year old!


    11. What does a cat want in a best friend? Someone who knows just where to scratch. Someone who can read the many moods of a cat's tail. Someone who knows when to play and when to stay away. In fact, this cat might just have someone special in mind. With characteristic humor and a light touch, Wendy Wahman shows readers what cats like and what they don't. A Cat Like That is perfect for every kid who meets a feline friend - from the overeager ones to the scaredy-cats!


    12. Narrated by a cat who lists what she is looking for in a friend. "My friend would stroke me gently head to tail, but not TOO mucha friend who wouldn't drag me around" Great for families about to adopt a cat or about to visit a family with cats to teach children the best ways to interact with a cat.


    13. A cat describes the perfect friend--which is really a clever way of showing children how to properly treat kitties. The cat describes the things he'd like a friend to do, such as petting and playing with him, and things a friend shouldn't do, like yell at him or drag him around. The pictures are colorful, and one hopes the reader will get the message--be nice to kitties! Recommended.


    14. This is a brand new book. I looove the illustrations! It has realistic cat behavior humor, like when they stick their leg way up in the air for the butt-licking bath. It would be a good pair with "My Cat, the Silliest Cat in the World" by Gilles Bachelet, for a preschool/kindergarten storytime. It might work with "Won-Ton" by Lee Wardlaw also. Maybe Six-Dinner Sid, too.


    15. This cute little story is told by a cat! The cat reflects on what characteristics it would like in an owner. Told in simple terms, it's a great little book to read with children! A good way to teach them how to treat a pet cat.


    16. Cat lovers will enjoy this one. For young children, it's also a nice introduction on how to treat their feline friends. I didn't always appreciate the color palette. The simple text is charming, though.


    17. This book is for cat-lovers, a cat's-eye view of what a perfect friend would be, and how the cat would communicate to that friend. This would be a good read for an adult as well. It would make a nice gift.


    18. Pets always seem to choose their favorite person. You may wish that cat to love you most out of the people in your home but they have their check list of what qualities they are looking for in that special human too.



    19. I love this book so much that I just ordered it from a bookseller. My beloved cat, Oliver, died in December and this book reminds me so much of him.




    20. Really good story about how friendship works and how kids (and other household pets) should treat cats. A nice, easy way for kids to understand what cats do and don't appreciate.


    21. Some many books are about people picking pets, it is nice that this one is about the cat picking. A nice way to teach kids about how to treat animals without it being too preachy.


    22. A most enjoyable children's book with lively illustrations that subtly teaches youngsters about the proper treatment of a new cat in the household. Fun.


    23. My kind of illustrations - big and bold. Good story for those who love on their pets a little vigorously (ahem, Charlotte).


    24. Oh, this cute little kitty knows exactly what it wants from it's human. Beautifully illustrated and simply stated, this is a delight.
