I was fascinated by the warrior cats series as a kid. And now, in some ways I still am. I like to read books about animals especially the ones where people aren’t they’re or they’re maybe background characters. I feel like often we feel the need to make stories about us. Romance, mystery, thrillers, fiction stories, most of them have people as the main characters. But what about the readers who want to read stories about animals? And why are most of these stories directed towards kids?
In many ways, I like animals more than I like people. My childhood dog was bacislly my best friend growing up and I’d liked taking him to dog park. I also loved the horse lessons I went to so I could understand more about them. I think there are more people than we think that what to use these stories to help understand animals better. Now, I know not everything in the warrior cats series is real. They don’t have medicine cats and go to caves to get nine lives. However, we can in some ways learn more about their behavior with this series. Cats can live in clans, although those clans might not look exactly like the ones in the book. They arch their backs, hiss, purr. I know some of it is just us guessing what it would look like if they talked like we do. But having this always us to create theories so we can find out more about the animals around us.
