Normally, this is not the type of book I would consider doing a review on. However, this quirky, offbeat, hilarious novel struck a definite chord in my cat-loving soul. The author makes many blatant and just as many tongue in cheek references to numerous adult subjects, all while putting a hilarious spin on things by applying the attitude of cats. For anyone familiar with felines, each cat most assuredly has its own distinct personality, and many of those personality traits are gloriously captured in this book. This is a book that both cat and dog lovers can enjoy, and everyone will have a laugh out loud good time reading it. I certainly did.
As an owner of three cats myself, it made my day to read this book, and realize how perfectly certain sections of the book can be applied to each one of my own felines individually. First we have the big one, terrified of her own shadow, but definitely one to try to test out the softness of body parts for maximum damage with feline daggers. The youngest cat, sweet as can be, is also devious enough to stalk not only us, her humans, but the other cats as well. And the old cat is just that, old, but still cunning enough to avoid the other two on a consistent basis. All of these traits and many more are discussed in this book, all with the intention of illustrating the many ways a cat may plot to kill you. After all that, I was left with only one question: are my cats plotting to kill me, and if so, when and how? Only time will tell.
