Book Description

99 Reasons to Hate Cats is for cat lovers.

Find yourself and your cat (or cats!) in the pages of this fun, funny cartoon book and you will be smiling and laughing all the way. 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

Each of the 99 reasons are amusingly illustrated with original cartoon art. Short biographies of the cats who inspired the art are included in the back of the book. Illustrations are shown in color on Kindle apps (on iPhone, iPad and Android) and on the Kindle Fire.

For cat lovers, 99 Reasons the perfect gift to yourself. Cat loving friends and family (or those who tolerate cats well for their own loved ones) will appreciate the book as well.

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! June 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm an animal lover by nature but cats are the one animal I couldn't live without being in my life! This book had my daughter and I cracking up at every page, everything written about cats is so true it had my belly aching! It's true for any cat lover, these are the reasons we love to hate our cats!! An absolute must buy unless you actually do despise cats then buy it anyway because at least then you'll feel like you've got somebody with legitimate reasons on your feelings about cats! Lol! :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Very true! Book needs page formatting July 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved the book. Had difficulty reading it on Amazon's Cloud Reader because it splits up the pages in such a way that the text for one graphic appears with the previous page's graphic. So you see a picture that was explained on the last page, and read a line that explains the next page. Makes for far too much backward-forward flipping. Perhaps on a Kindle this looks better. I'm just sharing my experience.
Women DO think cats are people (reason 17). Ha!

2.0 out of 5 stars cute but meh
Enjoyable but I almost fell asleep and it's only 50 pages long. No real depth or anything really funny either. Good for a 5 minute distraction while your nails dry...

Being a cat lover and owner, I had to read this book. Mr. Briscoe describes everything cats do with a bit of humor and, dare I say it, love. Good cartoons and descriptions.

3.0 out of 5 stars great sarcastic humor re cats
An opportunity to laugh at cats, and ones own negative feelings a towards them. Although one can take medicine for allergies, cats are best just left alone in my opinion.
