It's tough being a cat. Eat, sleep, decapitate rodents, repeat. Life is good! That is until their human companions decide to take jobs out of the house to help make ends meet. Gone are the days of home cooked meals, quality time and easy access to the out of doors. What are poor kitties to do? Fortunately for Fluffy and PKP, Dana has bought a laptop computer for the home and tries to introduce Collin to the wonders of the internet. And that's when inspiration strikes! The two felines take it upon themselves to learn how to navigate the information superhighway and figure out how to make some money to help their two-feets out.

Cats in Cyberspace is a fun read about two cats and their adventures navigating the internet to help out their poor humans. The author starts the ebook off with a note to let the reader know the setting is the late '90s and to keep things in perspective of the technology of that era. Hilgartner does a wonderful job of writing the cats and giving them mannerisms that cat owners can easily identify with and in some cases are uncannily accurate. I really enjoyed cat logic and the creative ways the cats came up with solutions to their problems. It's a fun story from start to finish, great for any cat lover. ( )

My first book of the year (2007), and it's quite a quick read.
The author really knows her cats, the expressions and little cat mysteries are explained here.
Lovely book, i recommend it to any cat lover. ( )

Meet Fluffy and PKP -- Princess Killer Pinknose -- two cats who should never be left alone, especially if there's any chance that they'll find something to entertain themselves. Their humans unexpectedly have to take jobs away from the home, leaving the two without quality pets and food on command. It's going to be a difficult change for the two spoiled felines, but cats can always find a way of making such a horrible event somewhat better.

And guess what? They found the joys of the Internet! Surfing, chat rooms... on-line trading services and pizza delivery.

The world is not safe.

Fluffy has her hands -- a, paws -- full when her psychotic sister PKP learns the power of the Internet. But with a lot of luck, and some Insider Information on Trading, the two may well make their humans rich... or possibly get them sent to prison.

Beth Hilgartner did an excellent job of bringing too delightful, and neurotic, cats to life. Their adventures with the Internet, a visiting dog, and their poor, befuddled humans make this a joy for cat lovers.

The book also has an introduction by S. L. Viehl.

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
Quotations
Cats, being wiser than humans, understand that it is the present moment—and neither the future nor the past—in which contentment resides. Cats understand that the hope of a better Future is actually a very unsatisfactory stopgap in the face of an uncomfortable or unsatisfying Now.

Book description
A book for anyone who has ever been owned by a cat... It's a cat's life for Fluffy and PKP until their two-feet companions have to take a JOB out of the home. Gone are the days of snacks on demand and Quality Time petting and purring. Instead, Fluffy is left at the mercy of her psychotically aggressive sister, PKP (that's Princess KILLER Pinknose, to you!) while Dana and Colin work as wage slaves. It won't do! Fortunately for Fluffy, when Dana tries to introduce Colin to the Internet, Inspiration-with-a-capital-I strikes. Fluffy takes matters into her own capable paws, and before you can say "dogs are stupid" the two felines are racing along in the fast lane of the Information Superhighway. Well, technology is a great thing, but the Superhighway still has plenty of potholes. From the difficulties of reining in PKP's killer instincts ("What do you mean insider information is illegal?") to the Pizza Problem, Fluffy has her paws full as the two cats navigate their way toward complete financial freedom for their two-feet pals.
