A delightful little book that was sent to my store cats, Shakespeare and Rembrandt! They enjoyed it of course! They also thank the author for kindly thinking of them! ( )

Cute. Not quite as sassy or snarky as I would have expected. (These were supposed to have been written by cats after all.) And I didn't see much, if any, of their, erm, how can I put this nicely...psychopathic tendencies? Believe me, there is most certainly a dark side, complete with an all-in-black cloaked mouth-breather. Like when the titular "could" becomes a most definitely DID - right on my favorite [insert item name here]. But I love my own clowder no matter what, which is, of course, all according to their plan.

The poems are great. Everybody who has cats can enjoy this book, not only if you have them, but if you know them you can enjoy the poems and can find the charm of the cats in this book. Highly recommended. Too bad that is so short, but the pictures are also amazing. ( )

I Could Pee on This by Francesco Marciuliano is the first in a set of short poetry books from the perspective of our pets. The others are I Could Chew on This (a book of dog poetry), and I Knead My Mommy.

The book features beautiful photographs of cats and kittens and poems that explore our on-and-off relationship with felines. These poems are written to take the perspective of the cats and so feature thoughts on territory, food, hunting, and a general bafflement at humanity's often less than enthusiastic response to normal behavior.

As the book is short in stature and page count, it can be read in a single sitting, or leisurely over a couple of nights of reading before bed. The vocabulary is simple enough and the humor silly enough to appeal to beginning readers as well.

Although I bought the book when it was first released, it took me nearly two years to get a chance to read it. My daughter, then a beginning reader, snatched up the book on the car ride home and kept it under her pillow for bedtime reading for eighteen months! ( )

I typically do not do poetry.....however, having received this as a gift and being a serious cat lover, i broke my own rule and actually plowed through this during breakfast!! Silly, clever, insightful and totally understandable to a non-poetry guy such as myself. There were at least 5 laugh-out-loud moments...and the accompanying photos made much of it even better. I am even adding a new tag for use in my LT library, but it may likely be the only one that ever shows up. Thank you Norman! ( )
