This book is for any cat lover who loves the fact that their cat isn't the personality-less slobbering sycophant (like dogs can be) and suspects that their cat really does dream about big things like, say, taking over the world or committing acts of mass destruction just for the heck of it. I know my cats sure do.
It's hard to read this book without laughing like a moron, so keep that in mind. So far, I have bought three copies to give as gifts, and I'm already planning on buying more. I don't know how the author (who doesn't actually own any cats of his own) can capture the thoughts of the cats so well, but he certainly seems to be able to read their minds.
This book was assembled of owner-submitted pictures by the webmaster of the [...] website. Anyone left wanting more after reading "Bad Cat" should check out this site.
Yet, WE BOTH LOVE THIS BOOK. That says it all. Love cats or hate 'em, you will adore this volume. It's fun. creative, and well-assembled. GO GET IT--NOW!!!!! It will make a nice gift for anybody!
This is for people who love or even (dare I say) hate cats.
By now, I don't think there's anyone who has an Internet connection who hasn't heard of mycathatesyou. But there are still some remote places on the planet where there are no Internet connections, much less broadband (for example, Missouri). For those poor, unfortunate souls, Jim Edgar, the supreme guru of mycathatesyou, has distilled two hundred forty-four of the site's most wanted, given them captions, and turned them into this small, hilarious book.
Pictures of cats who look like they want to kill you are relatively commonplace, and have been ever since someone decided that trying to photograph a cat was a good idea. Edgar, however, has a knack of putting captions with the pictures that induce laughter. (As in, out-loud, make-people-on-the-street-look-at-you-funny laughter.) The captions are what turn this from a work of unbearable cuteness into the greatness it is. Love cats, hate cats, cower in fear from them because they bring on asthma attacks, you will love this. ****
This is a small book (in size, not necessarily in pages) that show pictures (244 of them) of cats in humorous or outrageous poses. Edgar adds captions to them that take the book from "that's funny" to "you've GOT to see this!". These are not your typical cute cat pictures you'd see in some calendar or coffee table book. No, these are photos like...
A guilty-looking cat next to a naked Barbie doll with the caption "She was naked when I came in."
A disgusted cat stretched out on the piano keyboard - "I told you -- nobody wants to hear Billy Joel."
The cat laying next to what looks like a dead squirrel - "I think the play date's over..."
Yes, I have a warped sense of humor...
This is one of those books that will take you about 15 minutes to read, but you'll probably laugh more in that 15 minutes than you have all day. If you easily offended by semi-off-color humor or if you're a cat lover who can't take a joke, then you'll probably alternate between "that's funny" and "that's cruel". But if you don't fall into either of those two categories, this is time well spent to have a little fun...
