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

About the Author

DENA HARRIS has been a humor columnist for Cats & Kittens magazine and contributor to Chicken Soup for the Cat-Lover’s Soul. The author of Lessons in Stalking and For the Love of Cats, Dena lives in Madison, North Carolina.

More About the Author

Author. Humorist. Speaker. Ultra-marathon runner. Former vegan. Defender of furry creatures (except spiders). Mid-westerner living in the South. Control freak. Business Writer. Dark chocolate addict. Cover hog. Klutz.

Raised outside Dayton, OH, Dena graduated from Miami "We were a University before Florida was a state" University and migrated south. She met her husband on a blind date on Halloween and they settled into a historic 1906 North Carolina home, affectionately known as "the money pit." After earning her master's degree and running through a string of jobs--bodily injury insurance adjuster, corporate librarian, public speaking instructor, program coordinator for a return-to-work program for displaced homemakers--Dena started writing for pet magazines and eventually became a humor columnist for Cats & Kittens magazine. Her first book, Lessons In Stalking, was published in 2005 followed by For the Love of Cats, in 2006.

Foreign rights for Dena's third book, Who Moved My Mouse? A Self-Help Book for Cats (Ten Speed Press/Random House, 2010) have sold to the UK, Brazil, Germany, The Netherlands, Taiwan, Russia and mainland China. Her next book from Ten Speed Press, Does This Collar Make My Butt Look Big? A Diet Book For Cats will be released in 2013.

Dena has held editorial positions at numerous magazines. Her byline appears on hundreds of articles for regional, national, and international trade and consumer magazines, newspapers, and e-zines. She is a popular speaker and teaches writing workshops throughout the year.

Her insight into the world of cats is truly unique!

I'm definitely looking forward to reading the author's next book, and will be going back to read her other titles as well.

If you are owned by a cat, you need to read this book.

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....

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.

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

The title of this review says it all. But in case you need more, this is fall-on-the-floor funny. You won't mind shoveling out the litter box after a shot of Dena, America's Favorite Cat Humorist!

If you are owned by a cat, you need to read this book. Someone else said in a review that the first chapter "A cat's Conversations with God" was worth buying the book for, and I totally agree. My husband even read that chapter over my shoulder and we were both laughing!
