This book is a must-read for any cat lover, especially those who have brought home a cute, fuzzy kitten to the annoyance of an adult cat already in residence. :) As someone who has fostered many litters of rescue kittens, I know the annoyed stare of my adult cats as I clean, brush and play with infiltrators. I have seen my adult kitties run terrified from kittens who want to play with them, watched my chihuahuas herd baby kittens into their doggie bed for a nap, and chastised big kitties for whapping little fuzzy babies who just wanted to play on the cat tree. These cartoons had me laughing out loud and remembering incidents that actually happened in my house.

From a kitten's first lovely and also terrifying steps outside to spats with Simon's adult cat and the vacuum cleaner, these cartoons show the awesome relationship that forms between owner, kitty and kitten over time. The cats also make friends with a small dog, hedgehogs, birds, bunnies and other critters from the world outside.

This was a nice diversion on a rainy day filled with housework and listening to an audiobook that is rather heavy and depressing. I needed a smile -- and my own cats are all splayed out around the house sleeping. Simon's cat and his new kitten buddy provided me some much needed smiles and laughter. :)

I love these books! There is also a youtube channel filled with awesome videos (Simon's Cat).

Okay, not technically a blog. But I'm throwing it into that category anyway. ( )

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I read this when I received it, back in 2013, but apparently didn't write a review. As with all of the Simon's Cat books, Kitten Chaos is adorable and hilarious. I can't recommend his books enough - especially if you're a cat owner. As someone who can't have cats (allergies, sigh), Simon's Cat allows me to enjoy cats without all the sneezing and coughing. ( )

The book is shockingly dynamic given the static state of the images. I wasn't too certain how well the amazing YouTube show would translate to a wordless comic book, but it did quite a decent job. The story is linear and episodic, the animals all thrive with large personalities, and it's nearly as cute as the show (it can't be *quite* as cute given the lack of vocalizations and mannerisms).

Simon's Cat started as a series of flash videos on YouTube. As anything involving cats on the internet does, Simon's Cat quickly became a thing. Along the way, there came a series of comic books.

Simon's Cat in Kitten Chaos by Simon Tofield is the third of the comic books. Simon's cat, who as far as I know, remains unnamed, must now share his home with a new kitten. As anyone who has introduced a kitten to an older singleton cat knows, this process is not easy but is very amusing to watch.

Tofield uses sparse black line drawings to full humorous effect to create recognizable and relatable experiences of a cat and a kitten squabbling over the home territory. Except for the back of the book which includes an appendix of how to draw various characters and animals (as these are also a regular segment on the Simon's Cat YouTube challenge), the book is wordless. It's just the cat, the kitten, and their well meaning, albeit somewhat clueless owner.

Simon's Cat appeals to any age, to anyone who has cats or knows cats. ( )
