Learn how to persuade cats - the world´s most skeptical and cautious negotiators - with this primer on rhetoric and argument from the New York Times best-selling author of Thank You for Arguing! Cats are skilled manipulators who can talk you into just about anything without a single word. They can get you to drop whatever you´re doing and play with them. They can make you serve their dinner way ahead of schedule. They can get you to sit down right this instant and provide a lap. On the other hand, try getting a cat to do what you want.... While it´s hard, persuading a cat is possible. And after that, persuading humans becomes a breeze, and that is what you will learn in this audiobook. How to Argue with a Cat will teach you how to: Hold an intelligent conversation - one of the few things easier to do with a cat than a human. Argue logically, even if your opponent is furry and irrational. Hack up a fallacy (the hairball of logic). Make your body do the talking (cats are very good at this). Master decorum: the art of fitting in with cats, venture capitalists, or humans. Earn any creature´s respect and loyalty. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jay Heinrichs.

They say every dog has his day. Well, today I´ve certainly had mine. Hey, I´m Albertus Eagle and it turns out I´m an unwitting pet detective. I haven´t always been such a successful legal beagle, but when I´m confronted with a case that is so personal I can´t ignore it, I discover I have a passion for finding those who don´t want to be found. Cleo the cat. Well, she came along for the ride too. So, sure I´ve had my day today, but not in the sense of being past my prime. To the contrary, the fun is just starting. And I am buzzing with a new purpose, mixed with a tiny amount of vindictive elation. Why? Because, I´ve not only found myself a new home after the untimely demise of my previous owner, but I´ve also made amends with the cat. It turns out she´s not that bad, really. On top of that though, and this is what really sends shivers racing all the way down my spine to my paws, is that we´ve fingered a killer. How? Because you human´s, you underestimate us animals. And while you go about your business ignoring our very existence, the cat and I are listening and taking notes.

Meet Toaff: a lovable squirrel, and new standout character, searching for a place to call home in this gem of a story by a Newbery Medal-winning author.

Can Toaff really be the only one to wonder why?When a winter storm separates him from his family, Toaff must make his own way in the world.

Over the course of a year, Toaff will move into (and out of) many different dreys and dens, make some very surprising friends (and a few enemies), and begin to answer his biggest questions - what do I believe and where do I belong?Master storyteller Cynthia Voigt offers listeners a rich and rewarding story of finding one´s way in the world. 1.

The first in a brand new dark and gritty paranormal series, Stolen and Forgiven begins a new journey with New York Times best-selling authors Alexandra Ivy and Carrie Ann Ryan. Stolen The first rule of being Alpha of the Canine Pack is to protect their secrets from the humans at all cost. One look at the dying human at his doorstep, and Holden Carter knows he will have to break it. The broken woman with no hope at survival is his mate. When he forces the change on her to save her life, he not only sets forth motions that could risk both their lives, but the lives of every shifter in the world. Ariel Sands grew up in a post-Verona infection world and under the care of the very humans she thought had cured the disease. When they betray her in the worst ways imaginable, she finds herself not only mated to the Alpha of the very species she´s been taught to fear, but the focal point of a traitor and path to destruction for everyone´s way of life. It will take more than trust and a mating bond for Ariel and Holden to survive their enemies and burn of their own temptations. Forgiven Soren Slater is a Beta wolf who understands the duty to his Pack comes before his own needs. At a young age, he takes a position as a liaison between his Pack and the other species of shifters. He never expected his enticing flirtations with Cora Wilder, a Tiger Princess, would encourage her cat to consider him a potential mate. He´s forced to walk away, choosing a partner among the wolves to try and strengthen his Pack. Cora has no intention of forgiving or forgetting Soren´s rejection. Not even when the Packs are forced to live together and she discovers Soren´s former mate has died. But then, she´s kidnapped by the SAU, and she has no choice but to work with Soren to escape. Together, they must put the past behind them if they´re to survive the human´s evil plot. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Aiden Snow.
