"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."
"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
"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"

Top customer reviews
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!
The author of "I Could Pee on This" is breaking the news to those who have been ignorant in their bliss. The cats have won. They are in charge. You don't believe it? Well, who's the one cleaning the litter box?
Francesco Marciuliano knows cats. From feline typewriter fixation to toilet paper destruction to shattered wineglasses, the man has suffered––as have we all––at the paws of cats. And for the love of the diabolical little suckers, he––as do all we cat captives––keeps coming back for more.
See "This Is My Chair" for your Cat's attitude towards property rights, "Busy, Busy" for cat sleeping habits. "I Run" reveals a cat's intense desire to appear to know what he's doing. "Tripped" and "Talk to Me" reveal your cat's devious nature and possible criminal intent. In "Kneal (sic) before Me" the true nature of Cat/human relations is revealed. "Nudge" has been my own personal experience with five cats over 60 years, so that one is absolutely dead-on right. Blush at "Man's Best Friend" because it's probably true. "Family" is very likely true––you aren't that important. Every cat is the center of his own universe. You are just a satellite. "I Lick Your Nose" is so true that I've bought thicker makeup to cover scratch scars from the cat who repositions me to suit his favored sleeping spots during the night. This is done by digging into my cheek or eye socket and pulling. When accomplished during REM sleep, I don't discover Rowdy's act of violence until I wash my face in the morning. And, of course, the title piece says it all: Your cat will dominate you at every turn.
I laughed all the way through "I Could Pee on This," often reading pertinent verses to my husband as we lay in the dark, me reading my Kindle, he drifting off to sleep. He didn't always react as I would have hoped. I'm hoping it was because he was half-asleep.
I've converted him to being a cat person. But does the dog person in him still prevail? Rowdy, Jeep, Liam, Smokey and I must get together and work on him. If forty-two years of cat domination haven't quite converted him yet, we'll have to take more drastic action....
It also had my roommates giving me looks like I was nuts... which also had me chuckling.
Good buy. I'm considering buying the dog one for friends of mine who have two very beloved pups... just not sure if they share my sense of humor. XD
From the author who brought comic strip Sally Forth to the world comes this compact coffee table/back of toilet seat book. It's over 100 pages of witty, touching, funny, and every once in a while sad poems written from a cat's point-of-view. Us cat lovers will relate to every single passage. Every few pages we are gifted with that we love so much - a picture of an adorable cat.
The only reason this lost a star is because, despite it being clever, it just wasn't clever enough to warrant an "I love it" rating. You may love it if you are both a lover of cats *and* are fanatical about poetry. If you are so-so about poetry then the cleverness of a cat's point-of-view will lose its endurance after about ten pages or so. After than you will set it down and perhaps not return for a week or so. But don't let that fact stop you from buying this.
