At first I was fascinated by this book. It’s all about some place called “cat heaven,” where there are thousands of toys and cats can fly and there’s all sorts of delicious kitty food and angels to cater to every feline whim imaginable.
As an indoor-only cat, I know nothing about the outdoors, and in spite of reports to the contrary, I’m convinced that it consists of One Big Veterinary Office.
I can only figure that these guys must have busted into their cats’ nip while they were writing this because it is the strangest cat holiday book I have ever seen!
I think it’s pretty obvious I don’t need a diet book, but this one intrigued me, mainly because the human version was sitting around here for a while some months ago.
I was so impressed by this book! It calls itself “the only visual guide to symptoms and first aid” and it organizes information about cat health and illness in a manner that makes it easy to use, even by the densest of humans.
Humans can take their Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings books and shove ’em where the sun don’t shine. The Warriors series blows doors on them because the heroes are cats!
Many decades ago, a cat named Cica graciously offered her insight and wisdom so that other cats who were strays, as she once was, could not only find homes, but rule over the humans they chose to live with.
My human is always trying to convince me that veterinarians actually like animals, but I don’t buy it. Perhaps it’s not their faultâ€”maybe vets have some sort of mental quirk that turns them into sadists who enjoy poking around innocent and unassuming creatures.
For the most part this was a fun book, mainly because it’s show-and-tellâ€”your human has to take its techniques and do them on you.
When I saw this book, I was really hoping it would solve a few mysteries for me regarding my human. For example, how come is her sense of time so off kilter that I never seem to get dinner on schedule? And why does she insist on picking me up when it’s quite clear that I’m in no mood to be bothered?
When my human had me review The Fire Cat some years back, she had no idea that Pickles, the jumbo-pawed main character of the story, was just one of many feline characters created by author Esther Averill, and that most of her books centered around a small black cat named Jenny Linsky.
When I first saw this book, I was utterly disgusted. Cats dancing with humans? Give me a break!
You’ve got to pity James Edward Bristlefur — the dignified, urbane feline was the brilliance behind the career of his human, Sir Archibald, the director of Great Britain’s most secret counterspy agency. But one dark night, when Sir Archibald mysteriously keels over dead, James’ life is turned upside down.
This children’s book is apparently a classic and was originally written sometime in the 1930s. It’s all about Buddhism, but I’m not sure what to think about this Buddha guy.
Ginny was a dog who was rescued from a shelter in New York by a human named Philip Gonzalez. Philip Gonzalez wasn’t a cat person at all, but much to his surprise, Ginny adored cats. In fact, she made it her life mission — and her owner’s — to help as many homeless cats as possible.
What is wrong with my human? Not only did she bring home a book with the dreaded word “dogs” in the title, the author is a veterinarian! Dogs and vets — my two least favorite creatures!
After reviewing Cica’s book, The Silent Miaow, I discovered that her translator, Paul Gallico, wrote some books about cats, and Thomasina is probably his most well-known.
As a cat, I found this book to be hilarious. After growing up in the South as a dog person and cat hater, the author, Mr. Morris, falls in love with a woman who is passionate about cats and finds he will have to adjust to a life with them.
This book is scary, especially when I think about all the cats out there that get just any old cat food that their humans find on sale.
Apparently there is a whole series of little books featuring Mog the cat. In fact, she supposedly died in one volume the year before this book came out. So how did she manage to get revived for this adventure?
When I saw the title to this book, I just had to check it out. After all, humans need to know as much as possible about pleasing us kitties.
This book is about a stunningly dumb kitten. She looks at the moon and thinks it’s a bowl of milk!
