Book Description

99 Reasons to Hate Cats is for cat lovers - and those who manage to just peacefully coexist. You'll find yourself and your cat (or cats) in the pages of this fun, funny cartoon book. It shows the many ways our feline friends can make us smile, laugh and be driven a little crazy.

Here are a few of the lovingly documented reasons to hate cats:

Reason 12: Waking up in the morning before you do
Reason 19: Thinking every can is full of tuna
Reason 33: If you were small enough, they'd eat you.
Reason 56: Throwing up in just the wrong spot
Reason 91: Every chair is the cat's chair

All of the reasons are inspired by daily life with real cats. Short biographies of each of the felines who inspired the art are included in the back of the book.

Each of the 99 reasons are amusingly illustrated with original cartoon art. The images are simple, expressive and appeal to young and old alike. Illustrations are shown in color on your Kindle app (on iPhone, iPad and Android), Kindle Fire and the Amazon Cloud Reader.


Editorial Reviews

Readers of 99 Reasons to Hate Cats will accuse me of not actually hating cats. Ok, you got me. But others go as far as saying I like or even love them. That allegation I will strongly deny even if I happen to be married to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny book for cats haters AND cat lovers :-) June 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
With a title such as "99 Reasons to HATE Cats," you might think the market for this humorous little book would be limited to members of the local kennel club or their canine friends. Instead, it's something for anybody with strong feelings about cats. Even if you love them as much as I do, you'll find yourself grinning at the minor irritations that come from life with our feline friends. It's well worth the paltry $2.99. That's less than most drinks at Starbucks and it'll stay with you considerably longer. I highly recommend it.

Also, I'd like to point out that you don't need to own Kindle hardware to read the book. You can download software for most computers and smartphones from Amazon. If you prefer, you can even read it in your web browser. It's really easy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mostly lame one-liners September 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a cat-lover, I was happy to see this one show up as a free title a while back. On the plus side, it is a quick read. On the negative, it is mostly lame one-liners with poor illustrations. Some of the "reasons" repeat with different words and some of them are reasons to love your cats, not hate them. It's just not funny enough to get past the title.

A joyful reminder of why we shouldn't share our homes with cats but why we always will. The author must have an incredibly loving wife!

4.0 out of 5 stars I don't care for cats, and the book gives a lot of reasons not to like...
Some simple humor on a universal subject. Subject where people are either against them or love them. This little books crosses that bridge with something for both sides.
