Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cats have nine lives. Shouldnt they be lived to the fullest?

“Domesticated” does not mean “docile.” The ho-hum routine of sleep, eat, eat, and sleep is no way for any creature who ruled Egypt for a millennium to spend her day. Its high time felines everywhere woke up from their cat naps and grabbed lifes strings with both paws.

The Devious Book for Cats offers todays discerning kitties words of wisdom and advice on everything they need to know, from in-depth guides on cardboard boxes and catnip to a brief history of the Felinism movement. It provides fail-safe tips on waking a human when you want to get fed, choosing the purr-fect gift, staring like a pro, and making the most of superstitions. It also explains the undeniable allure of the Window, the terrifying specter of the Vacuum, and how you can groom properly in just the scant twenty-four hours allotted each day.

Cats: Discover the devious fun you can have when youre the one in charge!

Review:

"A GLEEFUL RIFF ON THE DANGEROUS BOOK FOR BOYS (AND ITS FOLLOWERS), THIS COLLECTION OF FELINEFS-EYE-VIEW ESSAYS IS A MOSTLY WINNING EFFORT FROM PAST AND PRESENT STAFFERS OF PARODY NEWSPAPER THE ONION. LESS CRINGE-WORTHY THAN ITS PREDECESSOR, THE DANGEROUS BOOK FOR DOGS, GARDEN AND THE GANG FOCUS ON A LITANY OF CAT QUIRKS AND BEHAVIORS THAT SHOULD GIVE CAT OWNERS A NOD AND CHUCKLE ON PRACTICALLY EVERY PAGE. INCLUDING A FIELD GUIDE TO CARDBOARD BOXES, PROFILES OF FAMOUS FELINES LIKE GARFIELD (GTHE TEN TON GORILLA IN THE COMICS ROOMH), THE THREE WAVES OF FELINISM AND AN ILLUSTRATED GUIDE TO NAPPING POSITIONS, THE BOOK LENDS ITSELF TO CASUAL PERUSAL, THOUGH CAT FANCIERS WILL LIKELY CONSUME IT IN ONE SITTING. LIKE LISTENING IN ON CAT-TO-CAT COMMUNICATIONS, READERS ARE TREATED TO TACTICS FOR GGETTING AWAY WITH IT,H EXPLANATIONS OF GWHATFS IN THERE?H AND THE GLEGEND OF THE CRAZY CAT LADYH (A CATFS CAMPFIRE SCARE STORY). ROUNDED OUT WITH ORIGINAL LARKS LIKE A TV GUIDE-STYLE PROGRAM SCHEDULE FOR THE WINDOW (G4:00 P.M.: PARALLEL PARKING. WATCH AS SUSIE CROOK FAILS THE TEST AGAINH) THIS FUNNY COLLECTION BOASTS AN IMPRESSIVE HIT-TO-MISS RATIO WHILE MANAGING TO AVOID CUTE OVERLOAD." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

This parody from the authors of "The Dangerous Book for Dogs" shows how cats can reclaim their devious nature. Written (with help) by cats and for cats, this book provides insight on everything from laying claim to a cardboard box to the proper method for infuriating allergy sufferers. Illustrated.

Synopsis:

The perfect gift for cat lovers!

Cats rule! And this funny, endearing look at cat culture shows how they've mastered the art of charming humans. Do you ever wonder how cats achieve the perfect blend of catitude and cuteness; how they can be both mild and wild? Here all the tricks of their trade are revealed as an alpha cat passes his wisdom to a new generation. Entertaining lessons abound, including a crash course on what to eat (mouse=do, gerbil=don't) and the importance of purr therapy to keep the humans calm.

Hudson Talbott's spot-on humor celebrates everything we love about our fabulous feline friends, as well as the little things we put up with because we love them.
