Thanks to the Oatmeal, I now know the truth. She knows that I know that she knows that I know. She is watching me. I am waiting for her next move. It's like a game. Like a game of what?... yes, cat and mouse, my friend. Only this time she is playing for keeps.
This particular book was being offered for dirt cheap on Kindle ($1.99 I think it was!). The book is a collection of many different 'sketches' (he is a computer graphics artist) and comics from over several years. Not every comic in the book deals with cats plotting to kill humans, but several do. But they all feature cats in some clever way. The 'Bob-cats' is a funny twist on office work. Other comics show the humor of cat behavior. If you don't have a cat or haven't had a cat, some of this will be unfamiliar - but still funny nonetheless. If you have a cat, then you can chuckle along at the totally real occurrence of the 'kitty land mine'. Seriously - the kitty land mine is very real, and almost always occurs on the stairs!
It's something that I like having on Kindle so that I can read it on my phone Kindle app if I'm having a blue moment. It never fails to both amuse and lift my spirits. We worth a couple of bucks.
Preordered for a cat-lover friend. Now, that same book has changed hands 10+ times to other people who want to read it. It was an excellent purchase.
Personally, I would use this book for a good toilet-read or I would throw it on a coffee table when friends are coming over so that somebody can have a few good laughs.
The poster included is perfect and is currently on the wall in my room. It's not big enough to read from far away, which kind of stinks, but it is good to have up somewhere. Makes me smile when I see it up on the wall.
Overall, I'm pleased with this purchase. There is more content than expected and everyone who has read it really seems to enjoy it. The comics are detailed and are easily understood, even for people who have no cats. The book itself is well made, and is very colorful. Really going to enjoy showing this to more and more people.
Hope this helps!
