"Poems by cats? Honestly? Yes."I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats' once opened, is as evil as an evil little book can get. It went from desk to desk to desk here at The Post, clawing anyone who's had or known a feline into its silly spell and sucking precious tens of minutes into its hairy vortex.
In four cat-egories - family, work, play, and existence - Francesco Marciuliano (writer of the comic strip "Sally Forth") has given voice to cats' 'every desire, their every conflict, their every epiphany.' Also why they'll put an entire paw in your wine glass when you have a date over."
- The Denver Post
"perfectly captures the odd, sweet, and sometimes sassy minds of our feline companions."
"With poems like 'Who Is That On Your Lap,' 'Nudge' and 'Kneel Before Me,' this quirky book will surely induce laughter and whimsical from all who decide to delve into its poetry."
"Francesco Marciuliano has collected poems by cats into a hilarious little book. From expressing their love for dead mice to pulling over Christmas trees, cats reveal their genius and neuroses"
About the Author

Poetry and prose certain to entertain and amuse every cat lover.
Even the human ones.
The book is a small hard-cover that fits on a table without taking up a lot of space.
Easily knocked to the floor. Repeatedly.
Type is large enough for a geezer (like my person) to enjoy even in less-than-adequate light.
Cat portraits showing our furry brethren in cute and/or compromising poses illustrate the pages.
While reading the poetry I keep saying, "Just like Mystery" or "Just like Sparx" or "Just like Pogo", etc.
I enjoyed it very much and trust that everyone will.
2 dewclaws up!
So, Catzilla's comments aside, because yah, he totally wears the Emperor's hat in this house, and should we ever doubt it, he sends his sidekick, Sith Whispicus out to reinforce his demands...this is a funny book, if you've ever had a cat with a touch of the spiteful in him. Cough *Catzilla*. And mostly, I think the author gets it right. I bought this book for my daughter, but I did some reading myself when it came in today because when I had looked at the on-line preview, it made me laugh. And I always like a good laugh.
I do have to say though, my favorite cat humor book remains "A Cat's Night Before Christmas," by Beard/Jones/Boswell. It used to leave me gasping for air every time I read it, until it became my daughter's favorite book as a toddler. And we read it over, and over, and over because that's what toddler's do. And being able to quote it from memory allows me to breath when it's read, but I can still smile when thinking about it. So that's a good one to try too, and very on point if you're a cat owner. But otherwise, I thought this one was funny in a more artsy kind of way, and I know my daughter is going to love reading it as well.
This book is fall down funny even if you aren't a fan of these animal kingdom drama queens/kings.
The most giggle worthy thing about this book for my daughter is her Godson's reaction. When he stays over night with her, this is his "read this to me please" bed time book.
No matter how many times they read it, the little guy still laughs like a loon and has taken to quoting some of the lines in the book. Hearing the author's words out of the little guy always makes me think
"And that is exactly how it would sound if Tango said it!"
(Tango is a big black tom cat my daughter rescued when he was about six hours old and if Tango could write a book, this would be it. The author has thoroughly channeled Tango and probably many, many other cats in the words in this book.)
This 112 page book is organized into four chapters. Chapter one covers cat poems about family. Chapter two has cat poems about work. Poems on cats at play are in chapter three. The final chapter are philosophical cat poems on existence. If you are a cat lover you might want to check out this volume of cat poetry.
