The Devious Book for Cats: A Parodyby Janet Ginsburg
Synopses & Reviews
Cats have nine lives. Shouldn’t 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. It’s high time felines everywhere woke up from their cat naps and grabbed life’s strings with both paws.
The Devious Book for Cats offers today’s 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 you’re the one in charge!
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.
Fluffy and Bonkers wrote this parody without authorization, because since when did a cat need permission for anything?
