Award-winning actor, host, composer, and writer -- and lifelong dog lover -- John O'Hurley is one of televisions's busiest and most versatile personalities.  Since 2002, he has served as the host of NBC's National Dog Show presented by Purina.  In 2005, he danced his way into the hearts of America as the ultimate champion of the hit ABC show Dancing with the Stars -- and was selected as one of the People magazines's "sexiest men alive."  He is well-known for his portrayal of the wry and witty J. Peterman on Seinfeld, and as the voice of popular cartoon characters, such as King Neptune in SpongeBob SquarePants as well as the host of the widely syndicated game show classic Family Feud.  In 2006, he made his Broadway debut in the lead male role of Billy Flynn in Chicago, and in 2007, he joined the Las Vegas cast of Monty Python's Spamalot, as King Arthur.  His first CD, Peace of our Minds, featuring his original piano compositions, also topped the classical charts in 2006. 

When he's not performing or writing, he maintains his single-digit handicap by playing on the Celebrity Players Tour and other charity tournaments.

I. Scheherazade: Memoirs of a Siamese Cat
Author: Douglass Parkhirst
ISBN-13: 429221

This is the only authorized, unabridged -- and as yet -- unbanned version of Scheherazade's spicy memoirs. — In this intimate autobiography, a gorgeous Siamese feline pours her heart out to Douglass Parkhirst, who digs cat lingo purr-fectly. — Born number five in a litter of six, "Sherry" recalls wiling away many wonderful hours listening to her mother's exotic tales about their cat family. Her mother frequently spoke of father's amorous disposition and his unfailing talent for "purring the cat's pajamas right off her."

Mu Chieng, her father, invariably attributed his "cat -about-town" prowess to his wild ancestors who had spent generations carousing in the bistros of France. On the other hand, Sherry's mother was raised in the genteel atmosphere of an Episcopalian clergyman's home. All that clean living, however, went out the window the day she met Mu Chieng.

As the charming Scheherazade matures and goes out on her own, she describes her adventures in a bachelor's apartment . . . her jealous fits over one of her master's admirers . . . her first encounter with a mouse . . . plus many other tidbits that will delight sophisticated cat lovers.

Cat "Tails" to Soothe the Soul
Author: Diane Dippelhofer
ISBN-13: 9781413758412 - ISBN-10: 141375841X

Most of us will agree that our cats are considered members of the family, but we still regard them as different from us. In Cat "Tails" to Soothe the Soul, Diane Dippelhofer takes our relationship with them a step further and shows that the human-feline bond can be much more than what we initially perceive it to be.

Through stories about the challenges we all face at different times - loss of a loved one, fear of failure, estranged relationships, discrimination, our own inadequacies, and fear of taking risks - we see how our cats may understand better than we do how to resolve these human dilemmas.

Whether you're a cat lover or not, your spirits will be uplifted as these cats teach their human benefactors about hope, love, compassion, forgiveness, understanding, and acceptance in this collection of humorous and poignant short stories.
