This book saved my life. I thought my cat was just being cute by kneading on my chest and legs but thank goodness I read this book in time. My cat was definitely plotting to kill me. If you have cats, and you'd like to live a long life I highly suggest reading this book.

The Oatmeal + back to back cat jokes = perfection. I greatly enjoyed Matthew Inman's latest book. His funniest work yet, in my opinion. Highly recommended for all cat lovers, cat haters, and anyone with a sense of humor.

"Publishers Weekly Review"
by Publishers Weekly,
"If nothing else, the Internet proves that people have an infinite capacity for guffaws brought on by pictures of cats. Given that reality, the Oatmeal's collection of Web comics about cats is a certain crowd pleaser. Since fans of the genre never tire of jokes about cats pouncing on you in the night, batting you in the face, chasing imaginary creatures, wanting their tummies rubbed, and other proof that cats are crazy, cat humor appears to be above criticism. Inman's style is simple and populist and asks little of the reader, and is effective in inducing laughter in bored office workers. The Oatmeal is itself on online sensation and Inman a Web comics superstar, making this a surefire winner (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
