Publisher Comments:

Celebrated comic artist and graphic novelist Jeffrey Brown's collection of all-new drawings sweetly illustrates the joys of living with a cat. Featured in McSweeney's and on NPR's This American Life, and praised by comic luminaries Chris Ware and Daniel Clowes, Brown's work has always paid tribute to felines as they curl up on couches and purr on the peripheries of his autobiographical stories. Cat Getting Out of a Bag follows his cat Mistyreally, any catas shegoes about her everyday activities and adventures. In a series of drawings, Brown perfectly captures the universal charm of cats in a lovely book sure to please fans and cat lovers of any stripe.

This book had me in tears laughing! With its simple drawings, it's perfect in capturing the subtle and confusing intricacies of feline behavior.
There are no bells and whistles here, but this has got to be as entertaining a comic i've ever read. I found myself saying "Oh my god, it's so true!" to every observation. I could never describe all the strange things my cats do, but Brown succeeds with ease, humor, and unbridled honesty. WONDERFUL!!!

If you are looking for a book that is filled with witticisms and punchlines, this book is likely to disappoint you. If you are looking for a thread of commonality between species that brings it's own laughs through the sheer joy of the simple pleasures we find in observation...then you will
like this book. Its vignettes read like Zen over and over again.
