Editorial Reviews

Review

“No longer satisfied with smelly shoes or two-hour tongue baths, today’s cats are looking for more than the quick fix of a jingle-ball session. Beautifully written with thoughtful insights, this book helps cats understand why nothing they do is ever their fault.”
—Kat Zebest, PhD, Head of Psychiatry, Stanford College
 
“While today’s cats hide self-doubt behind dismissive ‘you bore me’ and ‘I just sprayed the couch’ smirks, underneath they are desperate to introduce meaning into their nine lives. This masterful work answers their top questions.”
—Harry Lickalought, life coach and author of Be Your Best Feline

I picked up a copy of "Who Moved My Mouse" at Barnes and Noble yesterday, ordered a coffee drink and read chapter one. Please be careful sipping coffee while reading this book and if you must then don't order a latte extra hot like I did! You could be a danger to yourself and those around you!! I must admit I have always been a dog lover but now I am looking at cats with a new affection. Upon returning from golf today there was a neighborhood cat sunning on my porch. I think cats may be looking differently at me now. Karma....

A self-help book for cats? Any self-respecting cat would tell you that she is purrfect just the way she is, thank you very much, and she doesn't need no stinking self-help book, even if it smells like tuna. Despite this, Dena Harris went bravely where no author had gone before, and wrote just that - a self help book for cats. Thankfully, she had the assistance of Mr. Nom-Noms, "America's Most Know-It All Expert...On Everything," to help her with this task, and Who Moved My Mouse? A Self-Help Book for Cats (Who Don't Need Any Help) was born.

This delightful book made me chuckle most of the time, and laugh out loud more than once. I don't recommend drinking while reading - there are far too many "spew alert worthy" passages in the book. From the incredibly detailed Purrsonality Profile (is your cat an SEBR - Snuggler Eager Bold Rebel or an LCBI - Loner Comatose Bold Innocent?) to The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Cats, this wonderful parody will empower your feline charges to answer such deeply important questions as: Who are we? Why are we here? Where are you going with that ham?

Aside from being super funny, this little book is a visual gem. Illustrated with Ann Boyajian's charming cat drawings, and beautifully laid out in two-color print, this is a book to be enjoyed over and over. Don't miss this one, and while you're at it, treat your favorite cat lover to a copy or two - this book makes the purrfect gift.

Loved, loved, loved it!!! I have been a cat lover all my life and I couldn't put this book down. Just don't let your cats read it...your life and theirs will be changed forever. Recommend this to all pet owners. Those who are not will want to be after reading this. Would make a WONDERFUL Christmas gift.

What a great book... for felines, that is. I used to wonder why every interaction with my own cats left me with an inferiority complex. But after finding a hidden copy of Who Moved My Mouse? under one of their blankets, it's obvious those felines snobs are receiving unfair coaching. Author Dena Harris has sold out and provided cats worldwide with tips and tricks to amplify their already inflated egos.

Harris claims she simply wants to empower cats to make the twenty minutes they're awake each day, the best twenty minutes of their lives. I don't buy it. I believe she's made a clandestine deal with the furry devils so when they take over the world, in large part by using the advice from her book, they'll spare her from perpetual litter box cleanings.

You will want to buy many copies of this book... so you can destroy them. We must prevent copies from getting into the paws of cats everywhere.

This book is absolutely hysterical!!! Her insight into the world of cats is truly unique! It's been a long time since I've enjoyed a read as much as this one. I was literally crying from laughing so hard at some of the chapters!!! I would swear that she had met my cat before and consulted her on the book.

Dena Harris offers a wealth of down-to-earth and practical advice that any cat would find useful, such as...

"Dog owners respect brute shows of strength. To this end, you may want to offer them a tour of your `Trail of Sorrows,' including the bunny slipper you de-tailed, the napkin you surprised on the hall floor, and the loop pile rug in the bedroom that, thanks to you, will never bother anyone again."

Harris has a talent for getting into cats' heads and conveying their thoughts that is almost scary.

And no book that goes nose to nose against the totally unjustified rodent bestseller, "Who Moved My Cheese?" by Spencer Johnson, would be complete without a ridiculous parable about success. In Dena's version, Fat Cat embarks on a search for Mr. Mouse, aided by a pair of humans named Dim and Witted, and their dogs, Dumb and Butt. Along the way, Fat Cat shares lessons learned, such as, "Intimidation can stop others from messing with your stuff."

I've read some of Harris' other cat-related work and she has proven to me that she's one of our foremost cat humor writers. If you're looking for a book that will deliver loads of chuckles along with many insights into the way cats think, this is it.

Absolutely hysterical view of the not-so-common housecat's view on life! The first section on a cat's questions to God is alone worth buying the book for. I've had several cats and dogs over the years and the author really got it right! If you have EVER had a cat, you have to read this. If you never had a cat, you'll still love it, even if you're a dog person. Even got a copy for my sister - it's the kind of book you have to share!!
