Kindle Book Pick of the Week: AEngineering for Cats: Better the Life of Your Pet with10 Cat-Approved Projects

A cute but fun read that is worth a mention.

DIY for at lovers.

There may be 100 million pet cats in this country, but who says that means they’re domesticated? Sure, they clean themselves, use a litter box, and hunt rodents, but cats are also territorial beasts who think furniture is meant for claw sharpening, and that running water is always better than still.

In this inventive, surprisingly funny, and highly entertaining and practical book, Mac Delaney addresses the quirks of cat behavior through the mindset of an aerospace engineer (because that’s what he is!)—and gives us 10 projects that solve the most common sources of friction affecting cats and their doting owners.

Take that preference for running water. Because cats don’t trust still water (in the wild, a stagnant pool can harbor disease), they’re often dehydrated and cranky. Here’s how to build not one but two different fountains that will provide fresh, moving water. Or another problem: Cats, diminutive in stature, can feel inferior around humans, causing them to act out in negative ways. The solution: Erect a cat shelf on your wall, giving your pet a prime perch and a height advantage. And that furniture scratching problem? Construct the Cat Cave—it has angled surfaces for optimal scratching, a curved top for ergonomic lounging, a carpeted interior for perfect napping, and an escape route out back for emergency exits.

For any cat lover with a modicum of DIY skills, here’s a whole new approach to living happily ever after with your pet(s).

Kindle Free Pick of the Week: Don't Pee in the Wetsuit

 

Michelle Kennedy watched live coverage of a fiery, multi-car accident for an entire day before recognizing her father’s Chevy pickup pinned between the two semi-trucks. A television news reporter at the time, she narrowly avoided being assigned to cover the collision that killed her father. Suddenly a part of the news she’d reported on for years, Kennedy longed to run away from broadcasting, her life, and looped images of her father’s body underneath a yellow tarp.

Blending reverent reflection with rollicking adventure, Don’t Pee in the Wetsuit is a travel memoir about Kennedy’s attempt to sift through an unresolved relationship with her dad on a six-month trip around the world. Gallivanting through eleven countries with a best friend, Kennedy loses her clothes in Costa Rica, swims with bull sharks in Australia, gets scolded for peeing in her wetsuit on a cave tour in New Zealand, and overindulges on food, wine, and foreign men. Writing on the road, she struggles to forgive her father’s shortcomings and make peace with losing the first love of her life.

Kindle Free Pick of the Week: Woodworking Smash It A to Z

For those beginners in woodworking.

Woodworking involves creating works of art, although these works of art may not be as delicate as a painting or other art piece. When thinking of woodworking, imagine that you have a beautiful log before you, and you can transform this log into something that is a wonderful and beautiful form of art. By observation, wood products are seen everywhere these days and If you want to enhance the appearance of a room in your home, for instance, then there is no doubt you should include an authentic piece that has been made of wood.

If you want to identify a piece made through woodworking, also known as a wood craft, you are likely to see one when you are visiting malls, offices, museums and even people’s homes. There is significant demand for woodworking products. Transforming an otherwise meaningless piece of wood and turning it into a beautiful artwork is what fuels the passion of the woodworker. Not only is it a fulfilling hobby, it can also be a profitable side business.
