The Timeless Teachings of Guru Zuzu

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday What are YOU Reading?

*Disclaimer- I received a copy of The Timeless Teachings of Guru Zuzu As Told To Tony Broadbent  in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are my own.

The Timeless Teachings of Guru Zuzu As Told To Tony Broadbent is a sweet tribute to the author’s Bombay cat, Zuzu. She was named after Zuzu in It’s A Wonderful Life because in the film, her rose petals were a reminder of the sanctity of life. She taught him so much over the years that he eventually called her The Blessed Guru Zuzu. She has gone to The Rainbow Bridge, but her wisdom lives on in these pages.

It is a very short read, with a quote on one page and an adorable drawing to go with it on the opposite page. The author illustrated many of the pages himself. One in particular that I enjoyed was ” Always remember, never lose your sense of humor. Life’s Far Too Short.” The illustration is of Zuzu with a red clown nose on her.

I highly recommend this book for all cat lovers. Father’s Day is coming up and it would be a great gift for all the cat daddies out there. It is available on Amazon, click here.


  1. Sounds like another sweet kitty book……we make such wonderful subjects for stories don’t we????

    Hugs, Teddy

  2. I love books about pets! And seeing one with a red clown nose would be funny. Unlikely but funny! 🙂 Ill ask Katie of she wants to try the one I brought home from the drugstore.

  3. Life is too short. Great review and your kitty is a great poser.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Awww Monday, Ellen. Scritches to all the kitties. ♥

  4. Sounds like a good read, for sure. And those selfies are adorable! I like those striped slacks, by the way. 🙂 I’m unfamiliar with “Dolly Madison’s Surprise”, though the historical tales of our fourth First Lady are interesting. Be well!

    1. Thank you 🙂 I got the pants from Target. And Dolly’s surprise was ice cream 🙂

  5. Me, I like quotes. Here’s one: “Never put off to tomorrow what you can do today” – Unless, of course, you’ll be doing the exact same thing tomorrow. Sounds like a cool book! – Tom x

  6. Cats do make the best philosophers, only smart people can understand and write it all out for them.

  7. This must be such an inspirational read. I’m also a sucker for anything illustrated, and I can’t wait to see what this book has in store. Thank you for sharing this with us!
