I don't "hate" cats, but I sure do love laughing at this!

It's very much in the style of The Far Side by Gary Larson, and whether you love or hate cats, it's as funny and enjoyable to read as The Far Side.

I showed this book to both cat lovers and cat haters, and almost all of them loved this book! The exception would be those who are apathetic to pets, in which case, they don't really care.

Lots of funny illustrations and wishful thinking. It's very much in the style of The Far Side by Gary Larson, and whether you love or hate cats, it's as funny and enjoyable to read as The Far Side.

My only complaint is that it is too short and there aren't more books like these. Great bathroom/lounge reading material.

Well, if you do hate cats, you'll laugh your way through this book of drawings. Placing kitties in perilous predicaments is the objective here. Let your mind do the walking. Great book for relaxing with (yes, really).

The "I Hate Cats" cartoons by Skip Morrow are odd and funny. They show ways to be nasty to cats. The cats don't know what is going on and play dumb. There are first and second B+W books and a later shortened color version. The subject is not important. There is no text, just drawings. The language is universal. It is strange and unexpected humor. I bought the first two books when they were first printed in the early 1980s and loaned my copies to a dying friend. He took my copies to the grave with him. Replacements are hard to find today but well worth the expense for a used copy. I've looked for new copies for years and only recently thought of buying used. I went through them in one sitting. They are better than a good meal. I couldn't put them down. Skip Morrow did three of these books. I had both of the two originals and now have both of them again! I would recommend them to anyone sensitive to humor. I am a cat lover and owner and the thought of playing these tricks on a cat would never occur to me. That is the fun part. These are tricks that no one would do to a cat. They are so sick, that they are funny. They have been on my living room coffee table for several months now and I still pick them up.

You will find a copy of my review at the other book's listings as well. You don't need to read my other reviews. It can only be the same review!

Skip redrew some of these drawings in color in 2000. The color adds little to the humor. It is the action that is important. Get the originals first and the shortened color version for completeness of your set.

FFFUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNY!!!!!!! I do not advocate animal cruelty but sometimes you just feel like doing that to a cat, and when you see that someone has actually put there thoughts down on paper and you realize you're not the only one, makes you laugh all the more.
