Tom Cox is a very funny writer. His stories about the cats in his life, past and present, are sweet and hilarious and sometimes very sad. Highly recommended to any cat lovers, but especially for guys that secretly love cats and are afraid to admit it. Come on! Women dig guys that love cats. What more perfect animal walks upon the earth? Tom Cox perfectly describes all that is cool and ridiculous about cats. All the British slang is a hoot to boot! I have to start calling my cats moggies now. Does that sound like a Muppet?

Gotta love Tom's new book. It just makes me wonder, is he really a cat in disguise, hell bent on leading us humans astray!!!!! Loved the book and have read it 3 times. Was sad about Brewer, I lost my cat the same way, except, I found mine when I came home from work. Great book Tom, any more???

A kind and eloquent writing, "Under the Paw" is essential reading for any cat lover. With delightful, self-deprecating humor, the author brings us into the fold of his often changing household, while he lovingly portrays his spouse with respect and fondness. At the center of the writing are magnificent portrayals of several feline stars and their colorful behaviors like soiling the furniture, joy riding with the mail man, serial rodent killing and singing a chicken song . The writing style is masterful with metaphor and witty prose, while the content delivers a view of humans in relation to their felines in a way that leaves a weird cat lady like myself feeling considerably less weird.

Huzzah for the totally fun little book, conversational and fond in its focus on the relationship between cats and their pets. Recommended!

I liked this book, As a fellow cat person I could relate to many of the anecdotes related. A light read just the ticket for a wind down before going to sleep :o)

I ordered this because I follow Tom Cox and the Bear's twitter feeds, and this didn't disappoint - it's hilarious, thoughtful, and just all over enjoyable. Weill definitely get the next two cat books, and look into his other non-cat books!

The first book in Tom Cox's series about his cats is a charming introduction to his feline world. If you love cats, you'll fall head over heels for The Bear, the melancholy black cat Cox is convinced is the embodiment of his wife's ex-boyfriend "The Actor," Janet, who it isn't--as it turns out--a girl cat but is always Janet, and all the rest, each as individual as any human. Cox is a fine writer, who reminds me a bit of Bill Bryson in his ability to mine his own life for humor and the telling moments we can all recognize.
