So good, I reread it several times and then bought my own copy. If you don't laugh so hard you cry, this book is not for you, or you hate cats. / Available as an ebook from the Electronic Library (NBPLS)

This short collection of poems is all written from a cat's point of view. It is divided into four chapters: family, work, play, and existence. and the poems are all amusing and spot on. The author really gets into a cats head for these. I could see my cat and others I know in these verses. Light-hearted and fun, a good choice for any cat lover.

This tiny book is full of funny quips about cat behavior and psychology. The pictures make it even better. To make it even more entertaining, try some dramatic readings with your friends.

Adorable. While I can see how these are (I think) meant to be funny, I found them to be more poignant than anything else. I may be reading way too much into these little snippets, but some of them (like “Why Are You Screaming”) almost left me teary-eyed. A must for any cat—or poetry—aficionado.

Finally a comprehensive look at what cats really think! There is a very compelling poem on why the dog might not truly be man's best friend. Once you read this, you will have a whole new respect for cats.

Very witty. Cat lovers of all ages will find this hysterical! My daughter (age 11) has memorized a few of them and has entertained her teachers with dramatic readings.

In ancient Egypt / We cats were gods / We ruled the heavens / We reigned on earth / So kneel before me / I said come to me / Uh, listen to me / How about just a treat then? / Okay, maybe a toy / Some crumpled paper would do / I’m not picky

You can’t grasp for glory / from your chair / You can’t seize life / thinking only of loss / And you can’t grab a laser pointer dot / on the wall / No matter how much you try
