I don't have cats right now, but I grew up with several. This book is scarily accurate. Also hilarious. It would have been worth buying just for the long chapter "Cat vs. Internet," but the handy "Having a Baby vs. Having a Cat" chart is also quite important. "When upset, babies moan like overweight, needy vultures. (vs.) When upset, cats go kill something in the yard and then take a six-hour power nap. Cats handle pain like champs." Very true. ( )

Half of the book worked for me, the other half...not so much.

What worked was stuff like this:

What didn't work:

The bobcat comic just wasn't that funny to read. It was more "I hope this isn't the rest of the book. I seriously hope something is coming after this instead of this boring comic". And luckily it was just part of the book and then it got fun to read again.

Then we have this part and is this suppose to be funny? I just read and though "wtf?"...

I saw this and I just had to buy it!

I have two cats,(evil as hell) and reading this book made me half way die laughing and go, yeah my cats does that. But then I start thinking, my laughter stops, are my cats trying to kill me?... Well that would clear something's up...well, now what do I do? [panic ensues]...lol..

I love the comics, the artwork, and it came with poster!

You should really pick up this book, if you know cats, have a cat, (or don't, you'll still get it)you'll bust a gut, but at the sametime, in the back of your mind, you'll think, Is he really?

Sleep with one eye open. lol

This is a funny book to read & if you have ever owned a cat....you will know for sure what the author is expressing. Really like reading an Adult comic book, well illustrated! Some of the material is expressed in a "potty mouth" way but it is just a hilarious book. You will laugh! ( )

Not really a graphic novel but a collection of cartoons, I'm guessing from newspapers. For anyone who is a cat owner, there are a lot of "oh... yes... my cat has SO done that..." moments, and most are funny. A few are laugh-out-loud funny! I was given this book (hard copy), and I am happy to own it. It is not for kids, however, as there are some raunchier skits in it.

A quick read with glossy pages and nice color, and British humor (which I like). ( )
