If you are owned by cats and love them dearly, you will enjoy this book. It will remind you how much you love them, and the pets who have come before them.
If you are a snarky person who is just looking to be negative, then this book wasn't written for you. Max says so!
Max's other books are fun too, especially the book about rules for people owned by cats because frankly...we humans just get it wrong ;)
One section of the book that I enjoyed less was focused on Max's human mom and her efforts to raise money for breast cancer despite her own health trouble. The entire book was actually written by Max's mom and this section had a lot less of Max's "voice" and was just not as in-character as the rest of the book. It felt like she really needed to get that story out, even though it didn't fit as well as it needed to fit in order to flow with the rest of the book. It's a good story and I would encourage her to write it elsewhere- maybe as a website post series on a fundraising site. Unfortunately, it detracted from this particular book despite being a good story.
The rest of the book is well written and I'll say again that it was quite engaging. I recommend it to anyone who likes or even just tolerates cats. I read this on vacation just to get my mind off of work and it did the trick very nicely- but it did make me homesick for my kitty. She was waiting for me when I got home and cried for about an hour about how sad she was while I was gone... I don't think Max would be that undignified!
I started reading this book when I came out of hospital after suffering heart failure. To say the least...I was not in a happy place. Max changed that for me! Every night the siamese, hubby and self would sit around and I'd read out loud a few more pages of, "Bite Me". Now, I just have to imagine what Max would say about any situation and a smile creeps across my face.
This book deserves more than a 5 star rating but unfortunately that's as high as Amazon goes with the rating.
I love you!! I have read your other books and have gleaned my pearls of wisdom about how cats think and feel. I thank you for this.
Also, I now have a dictionary of "Maxism's" in my vocabulary - like - doods; skritches; and cans of stinky goodness. As loving parent my daddy and mommy apologize to you and all other cats that the trip in the PTU to the Stabby Place has to be done. They do it only because they love and care for us.
Take Care, Love Ozzie (cat child of Kathy and Gene).
Some of the material is redundant to Diary of a Mad Housecat, but since this book is in narrative form instead of diary entries from his blog, it has a different flow and feel.
If you are a cat lover, you will adore this book. If you're not a cat lover, you may find it humorous, but you won't "get it" in the same way.
Keep writing Max! I do not tire of hearing stories of you, Buddah, the Woman, and pooping on the pillow :)
